KPIX CBS 5 hires morning weather anchor

KPIX CBS 5 has hired Tracy Humphrey, currently the weekend weather anchor at Fox's WNYW-TV in New York, for its morning and noon newscasts starting in December.

Humphrey fills the slot that was vacated in July when CBS 5 moved Roberta Gonzales from mornings to evenings. Samantha Mohr, who had been doing the weather at 5, 6 and 11 p.m., was offered the morning shift but quit instead. Mohr joined The Weather Channel in September.

Humphrey, 37, has been at WNYW for four years (here's a link to some video a fan posted). Prior to that, she reported weather for WPHL in Philadelphia; WKBW in Buffalo; WTVH in Syracuse and WJCL in Savannah. She earned a bachelor of science degree at the University of Alabama and holds a master's degree in journalism from Syracuse University. She is a member of the American Meteorological Society, National Association of Black Journalists and Big Brothers and Sisters of New York City.
