Meteorologist Eric Sorensen Set to Join WQAD

eric sorensenMeteorologist Eric Sorensen will join WQAD, the ABC affiliate for the Quad Cities, next month.

Sorensen has spent the past 11 years at WREX, the NBC affiliate in Rockford, Ill., where he is currently the chief meteorologist. He announced the move on his blog:

I believe this will be a great fit for me personally and professionally. The tools will be there to develop new ways of telling the weather story each morning, all the while learning from talented broadcasters with more experience than I have. WQAD utilizes Weather Central Fusion Studio, which is the same equipment that WREX beta-tested several years ago. WQAD also has a strong commitment to cover severe weather.

Sorensen will begin at WQAD July 7. The Quad City Times reports he replaces Terry Swails, who announced last week his contract was not being renewed.

Chief meteorologist Eric Sorensen told The Rockford Register Star, Wilson’s departure is “incredibly sad. He is a good friend of mine, and I won’t get to work with him.”
