Coming Home

Eboni Deon, who grew up in Indianapolis before heading south to build a career in television weather reporting, is returning to her hometown.

The Indianapolis Business Journal says that Deon, a North Central High School graduate, will join WISH on Saturday as a meteorologist for its 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. weekend newscasts, WISH News Director Steve Bray announced Tuesday.

“I’m thrilled to be moving back to my home state and going to work for the station I grew up watching,” Deon said in a written statement.  “I look forward to being part of a team with a weather coverage reputation like WISH-TV.”

Her most recent job was at ABC-TV affiliate WFTV Channel 9 and sister station WRDQ-TV in Orlando, Fla.

Deon will help replace Pamela Gardner, who departed WISH in late November to take a job with WBZ in Boston.
