Meteorologist Kevin Coskren Joins WLNE From KLKN

Kevin Coskren is leaving KLKN to be the chief meteorologist at WLNE in Providence, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

Coskren, who joined the Lincoln ABC-affiliate in 1999 and was promoted to chief meteorologist in 2001, said that he has always wanted to return to the northeast. After KLKN parent company Citadel Communications purchased WLNE last year, he wrote to the president of the company and said he’d like to be considered for open positions at the Providence ABC-affiliate.

“I wish I could pick up the city of Lincoln, all my friends, my children’s school and KLKN and move it with me to another part of the country,” Coskren said. “This always will be my second home.” Read more

Chief Meteorologist Fred Campagna Out at WLNE

Chief meteorologist Fred Campagna is leaving WLNE, the ABC-affiliate in Providence, next month, GoLocalProv reports.

“At the appropriate time, I went to channel 6 management with a reasonable proposal that I thought would allow me to stay at the station for, at least, the remainder of my contract (Aug 2013),” Campagna told GoLocalProv. “The station dismissed my proposal out of hand, and we agreed to terminate the contract on July 31.”

Campagna, who handles the weather forecasts on the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts, has worked at the station for 14 years. He will reportedly be replaced by Kevin Coskren, who is currently chief meteorologist at KLKN, the ABC-affiliate in Lincoln, NE.

A student who was apparently shadowing KLKN chief meteorologist Kevin Coskren for a career education class, got stuck following Coskren a little too closely.

When KLKN went to Coskren for a live weather update at the top if its 6 p.m. newscast, the kid was sitting right behind the meteorologist.  Realizing that they were live, the kid slowly slides out of the frame (video above). Read more
