As was widely expected, Alicia Roman will take over morning weather duties effective Aug. 30, 2021.
Roman has been at WMAQ for a decade and was the station’s weekend morning meteorologist. The station also experimented teaming her with Avalos a few days a week on the weekday newscasts with both of them splitting on air time, likely as a way to get viewers familiar with her.
She was also Avalos’ primary sub on the station’s 4 to 7 a.m. show.
In addition to delivering forecasts, Scott is expected to provide reporting on weather and community events on select days throughout the week.
Scott starts Aug. 30 as well.
