We just received late breaking word that Eric Green is leaving WLWT-TV 5 and heading west.
Green becomes the new morning meteorologist for KOAT-TV 7 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A source which asked not to be identified tells us his last day will be January 13th (as in, Wednesday). We're not sure when Green will be allowed to work for KOAT.
Ah, but KOAT is a Hearst station...just like WLWT. So there may not be a non-compete involved here, with Green moving within the Hearst group.
Now, another piece that's falling into place still is Valerie Abati's place on the Power of 5 team. We're not sure if an official announcement has been made on that end of things yet. But we've heard a move is in the works for her. Again, we've not 100 percent confirmed it - so we won't post anything definite.
One thing that IS definite - WLWT's new chief meteorologist, Kevin Robinson, starts with WLWT on...Monday. Yes, THIS Monday. So, we're assuming he'll have some say on whether or not they'll replace Green and with who, or even re-hire John Bateman.
TSMW wishes Green the best of luck as he moves west...
