Sherry Ray Hughes Moves to WCPO As Meteorologist and Multimedia Journalist

Sherry Ray Hughes, who until September 10 was a meteorologist and reporter at WTSP, is set to join Cincinnati ABC-affiliate WCPO as a meteorologist and multimedia journalist beginning October 1.

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.

Hughes has worked in dual roles for her entire career — prior to joining WTSP, she also held the position of meteorologist and reporter at WNCN in Raleigh, KSAZ in Phoenix and WCSC in Charleston.

WTSP May Be Left with Just One Weathercaster in Heart of Hurricane Season

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.

WTSP general manager Ken Tonning assures Deggans that the station, which brands itself as “Your Local Weather Authority,” is “actively pursuing replacements.”

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.
