She told viewers on facebook to look out for her Monday saying, “My debut on WJAR is tonight at 5:30pm! Wish me luck!” Love was welcomed on set by anchor Gene Valicenti before her first weather hit on the 5:30 news.
But during the 7:00 p.m. show, Love was joined at the weather wall by anchors Dan Jaehnig and Alison Bologna who handed her a WJAR hat and a stuffed NBC peacock as a welcome gift. “Just so you know, she’s not replacing anyone,” Jaehnig told viewers. “She’s just adding to the biggest meteorology team in town.”
Love came to WJAR from WTVM in Columbus, GA, where she was known as Kelly Bryant.
