WJBK in Detroit has hired Meteorologist Lori Pinson from WGAL in Lancaster, PA. to do weather on the morning news.
It is a homecoming for Pinson who grew up with the area.
Here is the internal memo sent to the staff and obtained by FTVLive:
Please join me in welcoming Lori Pinson to FOX 2 as a meteorologist. You will see her on all shifts. Lori has worked in Baltimore, Philadelphia and did mornings at Channel 62 here until 2012. Lori brings some real local authenticity with her ... she is a graduate of Cass Tech and Wayne State University and has great growing-up memories ... Boblo Island, trips to Cedar Point, fishing on the Detroit River with her dad and flying radio-controlled planes with him in River Rouge. (I did not ask if she likes Vernor's.) Her relatives worked on the Detroit Tunnel and the Scott Fountain at Belle Isle, so she is truly Michigan proud! Lori's orientation and training on our systems begins Monday Oct. 26.
