Meteorologist Kait Parker left WPTV for the Weather Channel in December and since then station management have been looking for a replacement. Fast forward five months and we learn they have finally found the right person.
Meteorologist Lisa Vaughn will be joining WPTV Newschannel 5 soon, with a fresh degree in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She comes to South Florida from WJTV, the CBS affiliate in Jackson, MS where she served as the weekend morning meteorologist since May 2013.
Vaughn is a native of Houston and graduated from the University of Houston in 2009 with a Bachelors in Mathematics. She also earned a Master’s in Statistics from Rice University in 2010.
