Lauren Jones, who started her television career as a weather forecaster and reporter at WTVW here in the Tri-State, will soon have a new job.
After spending a little more than a year and a half at Indianapolis' Fox affiliate, WXIN-Fox 59, Jones is moving to Louisville's NBC affiliate, WAVE 3. WAVE's chief meteorologist, Kevin Harned, made the announcement on the station's weather blog late last night.
Jones will be WAVE 3's weekend meteorologist when the station's "Weekend Sunrise" newscast is relaunched in the coming weeks. "She is a natural fit to join the area's #1 Weather Team," Harned wrote.
After leaving WTVW in 2009, Jones worked as a meteorologist at WLKY, the CBS affiliate in Louisville, before heading north to Indy.
WAVE 3 is seen in eastern portions of the Tri-State both over-the-air and on the following cable channels:
- Avenue Broadband channel 3 (northern Spencer County)
- Crystal Broadband Networks channel 8 (Cloverport), channel 3 (Hardinsburg) and channel 4 (Hawesville/Lewisport)
