WTSP’s Chris Suchan Joins KCTV in Kansas City

After three years at Tampa’s WTSP, Chris Suchan is leaving to become chief meteorologist at KCTV, the CBS-affiliate in Kansas City.

Suchan replaces Katie Horner, who announced over the summer that she would step down, citing a desire to spend more time with her young daughters. Horner will reportedly exit in early November.

Blaise Labbe, the station’s news director, said in a statement that Suchan is in the process of moving to Kansas City. “His weather reports are calm and reassuring and watching him you feel as though he is just talking to friends or family,” Labbe said. “Chris doesn’t believe in hyping weather, or making more out of simple weather events. But if there is severe weather, he issues clear and precise warnings aimed directly at maintaining people’s safety.”

“I love covering the four seasons,” Suchan said. “Each represents different challenges, especially when it comes to severe weather.”
