WMAR’s Wyatt Everhart Moving Into New Role

After almost a decade at Scripps-owned ABC affiliate WMAR Baltimore (DMA 26), Chief Meteorologist Wyatt Everhart is stepping down to take on a new position.

Effective immediately, Everhart is transitioning into a role as host for a new WMAR lifestyle show for the station’s daytime lineup. He will spend the summer working with producers and creative teams on the program, which will launch this fall on the Baltimore station. More details on the program will be announced in coming weeks.

“As sad as we are to lose Wyatt as our chief, we are thrilled that he is staying with the station and using his superb interviewing skills in a feature capacity,” said Bill Hooper, WMAR VP-GM. “Through the years, Wyatt has been our ‘go-to’ guy for our ‘On the Go’ news feature segments that take us across Maryland, and we wanted to leverage that skill as a cornerstone of this exciting new venture.”

“This is a great, natural progression for me,” said Everhart. “While I still love the science of meteorology, I have always truly enjoyed getting outside of the station to talk to viewers and visit events across the area. This will be a new and exciting challenge that I hope viewers will share with me as we launch this fall.”

Everhart, who hails from Ocean City, Md., started as a freelance fill-in when he joined the WMAR news department in 2008. In his new role, Everhart will be working on air and behind the scenes with the sales and production departments.
