WEHT Meteorologist Scott Dimmich Joins WKRC

Cincinnati native Scott Dimmich, who is the morning meteorologist at WEHT in Evansville, is headed home. He will join WKRC next month as the weekend meteorologist.

Dimmich, who joined WEHT in 2009, said his last day will be November 4. “It’s tough to leave my colleagues and friends in the Tri-State, but I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve learned back to my hometown,” he told Ohio media blogger Jake Newkirk.

Dimmich joins WKRC a month after the departure of Jeff Creighton, who left the Cincinnati CBS-affiliate last month after inking a deal with rival station WXIX.
