WXIX Morning Team Celebrates Meteorologist Katy Morgan’s Wedding With a Flash Mob

WXIX morning meteorologist Katy Morgan got married this weekend, and her co-workers were at the party — with their dancing shoes on.

The morning team staff, led by co-anchors Rob Williams and Sheila Gray alongside meteorologist Dan Wells, celebrated the newlyweds with a flash mob choreographed to LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” (watch the video above).

WXIX posted the video on their website, noting that the dance was choreographed by anchor Tracey Johnson‘s daughter and took two weeks of practicing, in the basement of the station, to perfect.

WXIX Expanding Morning Coverage to Start at 4 a.m.

WXIX announced today that it will expand its morning news coverage to begin at 4 a.m., the earliest live broadcast in the Cincinnati area. The Fox affiliate will produce a half-hour weekday show devoted to weather.

“Fox 19 First Weather at 4 a.m.” will debut July 25 with meteorologists Frank Marzullo and Katy Morgan. Current morning news anchor Rob Williams will also contribute with headlines.

“Having two meteorologists already in place makes it an easy transition,” WXIX general manager Bill Lanesey said. “We feel there is a strong appetite for weather first thing in the morning.”

WXIX was the first station in Cincinnati to begin their morning broadcast at 4:30 a.m. The addition of this show to the station lineup will give WXIX eight hours of local news on weekdays, more than any other stations in the market.
