CBS Atlanta meteorologist Markina Brown has been off the air the past month.
CBS officials have only told me she’s on medical leave but provided no specifics. Good news: she will be back on February 14.
The Detroit native has been relatively inactive on her Facebook page the past month, though people have been asking about her status. The only postings she’s made the past couple of weeks were asking folks to vote for her in the Creative Loafing annual “Lust List” survey which features women around Atlanta. (Singer Keri Hilson ended up winning.)
I’ve emailed Brown on Facebook and am awaiting a response.
Brown joined CBS Atlanta in October 2010 after stints in Lansing, Mich., St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago and Los Angeles. Brown replaced Dagmar Midcap, who broke her contract to leave Atlanta, citing health issues related to the suicide of a former boyfriend. Midcap is now a weather forecaster in San Diego.
