Domenica Davis on Her WNBC Departure

Former WNBC meteorologist Domenica Davis talks with our sister site FishbowlNY about her departure from the NBC-owned station in New York City:

“I’m trying to get out of weather and do more hosting work,” Davis says. “I’ve been trying to make the shift for a while.”

Regarding her departure from WNBC, she says it was totally planned from the beginning.

“It was no surprise at all. I was actually surprised how long I stayed,” Davis admits. “I was hired by the previous general manager. It was made very clear to me my first days there that the new GM wanted his own person. I have no hard feelings. It was a great opportunity.”

Davis is currently freelancing for Bader TV and the ION Channel.
