Hughes has been a meteorologist and reporter at WTSP, the Tampa-St. Petersburg CBS-affiliate, since 2005. She replaces Steve Norris, who is leaving WCPO, as weekend 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. meteorologist; during the week, she will contribute to the station’s reporting and newsgathering, and provide weather forecasts as needed.

Is it possible that St. Petersburg’s WTSP may only have one weathercaster on its payroll going into the heart of hurricane season?
That’s the question Eric Deggans of the St. Petersburg Times is asking, pointing out that meteorologists Sherry Ray Hughes and Chris Suchan are both scheduled to leave the Gannett-owned station by the end of September. Their imminent departures mean that WTSP would be left with just Bobby Deskins on its weather team.
Hughes is expected to leave the station in mid-August for personal reasons and Suchan will depart at the end of September, reportedly for a chief meteorologist post at another station.
