Fox43 Morning News has announced the addition of Andrea Michaels as the team's meteorologist. She will join co-anchors Amy Lutz and Melanie Orlins from 4 to 9 a.m., alongside traffic reporter Chris Garrett.
Michaels is filling the spot vacated in October 2015 by Jeff Jumper, who left Fox43 to take a position at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency as this state's first meteorologist.
“I've worked with the morning shift several times, and I am looking forward to becoming a permanent part of this team," Michaels said in a press release. "We have plenty of fun in the morning, but not before making sure we provide our viewers with the information they need to start their day!”
Michaels began her broadcasting career at WICZ in Binghamton, NY, and is a graduate of Penn State University. She received her meteorology degree in 2009 from PSU. Michaels has worked for Fox43 since 2013 as the meteorologist for the weekend edition of Fox43 News at 10.
She begins her new role on Feb. 22.
