Weathercaster Pat Barry Back on WLWT, For Now

A short-staffed weather team has brought Pat Barry back to WLWT, the station where he began his career as a weathercaster, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Barry is a veteran Cincinnati weathercaster who left Fox-affiliated WXIX last year. He began his career at WLWT, the NBC-affiliate, in 1984. He appeared on the Sunday morning newscasts last weekend and will continue to fill-in occasionally going forward, the Enquirer reports.

“It was fun to have Pat back on the WLWT airwaves,” news director Stacy Owen said. “Yes he’s going to be helping us out on the weekend mornings while Randi (Rico) remains on maternity leave, and we continue our search for Valerie’s (Abati) replacement. Steve Norris is still in the wings as well.”

After 16 Years at WKRC, Meteorologist Jeff Creighton Signs On At Rival Station WXIX

WKRC meteorologist Jeff Creighton, who has been with the Cincinnati CBS-affiliate for 16 years, has signed on with rival station WXIX, the Fox-affiliate.

Creighton, who started at WKRC as a weather producer in 1995, will begin at WXIX on October 3. He replaces Pat Barry, who left WXIX to host a morning radio show.

“Jeff Creighton resigned from his position as weekend meteorologist with Local 12 on Friday, September 16th, to pursue another opportunity,” WKRC news director Kirk Varner said in a statement. “Because that opportunity is apparently with another station locally, he felt it was best that he make his resignation effective immediately. We have begun a search for his replacement.” Read more
