WCVB has promoted JC Monahan to be co-host of "Chronicle" and has hired former rival meteorologist Cindy Fitzgibbon to take Monahan's place as meteorologist on WCVB's "EyeOpener" morning show.
Monahan, a morning weather reporter for eight years, will start co-hosting "Chronicle" with Anthony Everett in June. Monahan will also continue to make appearances on EyeOpener and take on additional news responsibilities at WCVB, the local ABC affiliate.
Fitzgibbon has forecast the weather for 17 years and spent the last decade as a meteorologist in WFXT Boston, the local Fox affiliate. WCVB President Bill Fine said Fitzgibbon is returning to TV after taking six months off to be with her family. "The timing was incredibly fortunate for NewsCenter 5 and Chronicle, as this is a true perfect match in every way," Fine said.
