Katie Fehlinger Joins Philadelphia’s KYW Next Month

WCBS weathercaster Katie Fehlinger is set to return to her native Philadelphia in the fall. CBS confirmed the long-rumored move by Fehlinger today, announcing that she will join the CBS-owned KYW-WPSG duopoly.

Fehlinger will replace Kate Bilo as weather forecaster on the morning show. Bilo, in turn, replaces chief meteorologist Kathy Orr, reporting the weather for the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts on KYW. Orr will shift to the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. broadcasts, citing a desire to reduce her workload as her children get older.

Fehlinger has been at WCBS for only a short time — she joined the CBS O&O in New York in March after four years with Accuweather. Originally a general news reporter, Fehlinger switched her focus to weather in 2006. She calls her first weather report, an update on tornadoes in the Midwest for Fox News, the highlight of her career.“I never had a more exciting moment professionally,” she said. “I knew I had chosen the right career.”
