Meteorologist Jeff Berardelli Joining WPEC From WFOR

Another meteorologist is leaving WFOR, the CBS owned station in Miami. Jeff Berardelli is leaving the Miami CBS O&O to join WPEC, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach.

WPEC has also announced that chief meteorologist John Matthews has signed a new contract with the station. In a statement, general manager Michael Puno said Berardelli’s hire and Matthews’ extension are “just another step in putting together the most talented group of weather, news and content providers in the WPB and Ft. Pierce markets.”

Berardelli has worked at WFOR since 2007. He is the second meteorologist to announce his departure from the CBS O&O this week. David Bernard, who has been with the station since 2005, will leave when his contract is up in November after reportedly rejecting a pay cut from WFOR bosses.

Moving from WFOR to WPEC is a 22-market drop for Berardelli. “Things are falling apart at CBS 4 Miami,” one South Florida television insider told TVSpy.

Before joining WPEC, Berardelli was the morning meteorologist at another CBS O&O, WCBS in New York City. While in New York, he worked as a fill-in anchor for the “CBS Early Show” and served as a consultant for CBS News.
