Getting out of the Business

A Cincy Weather Anchor has left the station and TV altogether. 

WLWT Meteorologist Jennifer Schack resigned and is now on a mission from God. 

 Schack has accepted a position with the Diocese of Covington. 

"I can finally talk about my new job. I am working for the Diocese of Covington in a new role titled New Media Correspondent. I work under 'The Messenger' staff and will focus on online digital content for the diocese as well as reporting for the weekly diocesan newspaper," she said in a statement. "I'm excited to share my faith in my work. I'm an active member of the St. Joseph Cold Spring parish. I think the work will be a natural fit for me as I transition out of the TV business."

Schack, who returned from maternity leave on May 20, is the mother of three young children. She has worked weekend mornings since she was hired by WLWT in January 2013 from Lexington's WTVQ.

"From here I’m going on another exciting adventure, changing careers," she wrote on Facebook. "It’s true that being a meteorologist has been my dream job, the next path is about more than my passion, it’s about my faith. I look forward to merging my Catholic faith with my work."

"I could not be more thankful for a wonderful 16-year career in TV!" Schack said. "I truly appreciate all of the viewers and the mentors who have helped me along the way. It’s been extremely rewarding, often challenging and always exciting."
