KABC Meteorologist Found…On Vacation

The mystery has been solved! After a few rumors started popping up online and in TVSpy’s mailbox about the recent disappearance of KABC meteorologist Dallas Raines, we went straight to the source for answers.

Cheryl Fair, news director for the Los Angeles ABC owned station, told TVSpy Raines has been “off on a long-planned well-deserved special vacation.”  Fair added that Raines would be back on the air tonight.

On Raines’ company facebook page, viewers began posting comments like, “Where are you Dallas ?” and “Where have you been? You’re the best dresser on t.v. You’re an impeccable dresser! You’ve got the best personality of any weatherperson. I miss seeing you. Are you o.k.? I hope all is well with you.”

Newsblues reported Raines last checked in on air at 5:09 p.m. on April 12 and last tweeted on April 8, the subscription news site also said it was “unusual” KABC made no mention of his absence, especially since it happened during the beginning part of May sweeps.
