WPXI Shuffles Weekend, Morning Meteorologists

Pittsburgh NBC-affiliate WPXI has swapped the schedules of two meteorologists, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Mike LaPoint (pictured), formerly the meteorologist for the weekday morning newscast, has been reassigned to weekends. Kevin Benson, formerly the weekend meteorologist, will take his place in the mornings.

“Viewers in Pittsburgh have come to trust Kevin over the years on weekends, and we felt Kevin’s friendly presence would be a perfect addition to the morning team,” WPXI news director Mike Goldrick said.
