Self-Proclaimed Nerd Jonathan Oh Promoted to Daytime Meteorologist at WOLO

Jonathan Oh, a web producer and new media coordinator with WOLO, has been promoted to daytime meteorologist at the ABC-affiliate.

Oh, who worked as a reporter and meteorologist at crosstown rival WACH before joining WOLO, will work the station’s 6 a.m. and noon newscasts, which are set to be filmed in WOLO’s new street-level studio in downtown Columbia, SC.

“We’re delighted Jonathan will be on the air in Columbia doing weather again, this time with ABC Columbia,” said Chris Bailey, WOLO’s vice president and general manager, in announcing the move. “Jonathan is a great team player and very techno-savvy and will continue in his role as New Media Coordinator for our station.”

Oh, who describes himself as “fun, nerdy, techie” in his Twitter profile, is a media renaissance man. In addition to being a member of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association, Oh has experience producing and anchoring live streaming news coverage for WOLO.
