WPLG meteorologst has added a new meteorologist on weekend morning newscast. He was introduced to the viewers on last night’s newscast when he filled in for Trent Aric, according to one of our alert readers.
Initially we weren’t sure who Michael Smith was but after asking the Google we found out he’s actually a familiar face. Smith comes to WPLG from WHNS, the FOX affiliate in Greensboro, North Carolina where he was the station’s chief meteorologist.
But before taking that job Smith it turned out freelanced at WFOR until sometime in 2002.
Michael Smith takes over for the suddenly departed Geneen Anderson on the weekend morning newscasts. Geneen Anderson joined WPLG in June 2008 from WCNC in North Carolina.
