New Orleans Meteorologists Jonathan Myers, Dawn Brown Headed to Baltimore

Husband-and-wife meteorologists Jonathan Myers and Dawn Brown are leaving New Orleans for Baltimore.

Myers will join WBFF, the Fox-affiliate in Baltimore, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. In New Orleans, Myers works at CBS-affiliated WWL and and Brown works at Fox-affiliate WVUE. The couple had their first child last month, and Brown will stay at home with him, at least temporarily.

“We love New Orleans. It was probably the most difficult decision we have ever made,” Myers told the Times-Picayune. “We love the people here. We love the support we’ve had. We love the city, and we may be back someday.”

WVUE Set to Launch Noon Newscast, Giving Two New Orleans Veterans a Shot at Redemption

New Orleans’s WVUE is set to launch a new midday newscast anchored by Liz Reyes (right), who joined the Fox-affiliate last year after being dumped by rival station WGNO in 2009 following more than a decade with the station.

The hour-long noon newscast will debut on May 23rd, a fact that was announced to WVUE’s staff on Thursday, according to The Times-Picayune.

“We wanted to have a midday presence, to fill that news hole,” said Mikel Schaefer, WVUE’s news director, pointing out that the new newscast will bring the station’s daily news output to 7 1/2 hours.

Reyes isn’t the only person getting a chance for vindication in the market with the newscast. She will be joined by weathercaster Dawn Brown, who was cut by CBS-affiliate WWL in 2009.
