Meteorologist Bay Scroggins has jumped ship to WFOR as of this past weekend. He was most recently at WPTV Newschannel 5 doing the forecasts for the weekend morning newscast. His first day on the air was this past Saturday AM and he will be “filling-in for a while”. He doesn’t appear to be a permanent hire though, he’s freelacing for CBS4 in place of meteorologist Jeff Berardelli who left for Palm Beach CBS affiliate WPEC.
Scroggins is also no stranger to WFOR, he worked at the station briefly as an assignment editor. He joined WPTV in May 2012 from WeatherNation on a part-time contract. In June this year he announced on his Facebook page that he’s leaving WPTV due to a need to minimize his commute since he lives in away from West Palm Beach. You can catch his forescasts weekend mornings on CBS 4 News.
