After 10 years, WGCL-TV meteorologist Laura Huckabee has left the station. “We didn’t come to agreement” for a new contract, she said, without being specific why.
She said she’d “love to stay in television… my agent is looking across the country. I’m going to see what happens.”
Over the past couple of years, the station has given its marketing dollars and prime time slots to Dagmar Midcap. What did Huckabee think of Dagmar? “I think management is very very pleased with Dagmar and what she does. And that’s all I would to care say about her.”
Do you feel a chill in the air?
Huckabee has a broadcast meteorology degree from Mississippi State and a masters in science from Kennesaw State University. Here was her bio on the WGCL Web site:
Laura Huckabee is the meteorologist for CBS Atlanta’s weekend news and reports on weather-related stories for the CBS Atlanta evening newscasts.
Laura always tries to incorporate “fun” into everything she does. That’s obvious in the way she always puts an upbeat spin into her weather forecasts and reports.
She loves taking a little southern charm to the Big Apple. She has filled in for the weather staff on the CBS Early Show and CBS Saturday Early Show.
Outside of work, Huckabee enjoys running, rollerblading, attending theatre and opera, watching old movies and foreign films.
Laura started her career as a news anchor in Arkansas but quickly made the transition to weather. She graduated from Arkansas State with a degree in Elementary Education and later obtained a second degree in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State. She is a member of the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society.
