NBC owned-and-operated WMAQ in Chicago has added two meteorologists to the weather team: Cheryl Scott (pictured, right) and Alicia Roman.

Scott, who is currently a meteorologist at WBIR in Knoxville, will be WMAQ’s weekend meteorologist. She will replace Ginger Zee, who is leaving the station in October, reportedly to join ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Roman will join the station as the meteorologist for the newly-launched noon newscast. She comes to WMAQ from WISH in Indianapolis.

With the addition of Scott and Roman, WMAQ’s weather team will expand to five people, including current meteorologists Brant Miller, Andy Avalos and Pete Sack. “We are committed to providing our viewers across all platforms the most comprehensive weather coverage in Chicago,” station president and general manager Larry Wert said in a statement.
