Meteorologist Amelia Segal Joins WRC

Meteorologist Amelia Segal is joining WRC in Washington, DC. She begins at the NBC O&O on March 11.

Segal, a native of Frederick County, Md., joins WRC from WIVB-WLNO in Buffalo.

“Amelia has a true passion for weather and the background to complement our team,” said chief meteorologist Doug Kammerer said in a statement. “Adding another meteorologist – especially one from our region – will help make our coverage even better.  We are excited for Amelia to join our team.”

Along with Segal’s hire, WRC announced “significant investments” in the station’s weather resources and technology, including a more expansive network of cameras installed throughout the city and a new weather app.

In Buffalo, WIVB Gets a $2.5M Makeover

Buffalo CBS-affiliate WIVB unveiled a new look, the result of a $2.5 million makeover, on the 5 p.m. newscast yesterday.

WIVB is the last of the Buffalo stations to make the HD switch. A large part of the new studio is the weather corner (pictured), which is designed to accommodate the station’s entire weather staff at once. Read more

WIVB Moves Meteorologist Mike Cejka to Weekends

WIVB, the CBS-affiliate in Buffalo, has moved veteran meteorologist Mike Cejka from weekday mornings to weekends — at least temporarily.

According to Buffalo media reporter Alan Pergament, Cejka will be the weekend meteorologist “for the forseeable future.” Meteorologist Amelia Segal has replaced him on the morning and noon newscasts.

Cejka has been at WIVB since 1983. Pergament reports he was informed of the shift change when the schedule was posted, and was never spoken to by station management about the switch.
