Stephen Morgan and Marissa Torres make a great team on “Weather Command”…. Still no sign or word about Amy Freeze, but hope this team sticks together. If Amy returns it would be great to see her paired with Jason Fraser in the afternoons…

I agree. I love seeing Stephen and Marissa together.

FTVLive is reporting the Freeze and Frazier are both essentially leaving at the end of their contracts...

That’s too bad regarding Jason Frazier. I thought something might be happening with him when they pulled him from the early mornings….

I loved Jason and Amy. It’s sad if they’re both leaving, especially since Jason essentially kicked off FOX weather by being the first person to speak when they signed on.

When Freeze started co-hosting Outnumbered on FNC I had thought her days would be numbered on FOX Weather, but figured she’d become just a FOX News meteorologist…

I honestly thought she was going to step away from weather altogether and become a political commentator.

Maybe now she will!

Any word on when Amy’s contract ends? She is still listed on the website (as is Jason Frazier)

Looks like the first public announcements of Any's original hiring at Fox Weather were around October 6, 2021. 

 

Jason's hiring was announced much earlier on June 24, 2021. Thinking that means his bio might get removed very soon.

Couple observations from the weekend and today...

 

Apparently there was a scheduled edition of Fox Weather @Night with Haley Meier last night on Sunday night. I'm wondering if this show might be turning into a Sunday-Thursday night "get you ready for your next workday" type of show. This would make sense if true.

 

Craig Herrera did not appear over the weekend; however, he's on Fox Weather First with Britta this morning on a Monday, which always used to be his day off. Is he possibly going to take weekday mornings on a regular basis?

 

Michel Estimate seems to have worked a dual shift between Fox Weather First and Fox Weather Live on both Saturday and Sunday. Surely that can't be the long-term plan for weekends, right?

Hailey’s show makes sense as Sun-Thurs IMHO.

 

for Craig, it’s probably too early to tell (unless an announcement is made) but he has earned it - he’s an original and has been working weekends from day 1.

 

Are the early afternoon hours hosted by 1 rotating meteorologist since Jason left ? When does Ian’s show start/end and what about Steve’s?

Marissa wants to ease back in or maybe wants to do mornings to be home with family during the nights. I knew Marissa was coming back in March. 

She’s still on mornings…

Looks like nothing's permanent for Fox Weather First. Michael Estime is alongside Britta this morning, and Craig Herrera is going to be on Weather Command instead. It was the exact opposite yesterday.

 

The afternoon America's Weather Center shift is indeed just a rotating cast of meteorologists, with Michael Estime or Bob Van Dillen most common during the early half of the week, and Jane Minar being most common in the second half of the week. Others pitch in as needed.

 

Steve Bender is still the host of Fox Weather Live from 6pm-9pm ET with Kiyana Lewis being a contributing meteorologist to the show.

I have no idea what's happening with weekends anymore. Fox Weather First was hosted by Michael Estime and Kendall Smith today. As for Fox Weather Live... it's Stephen Morgan and Kathy Orr. (Stephen was given Monday-Wednesday of this past week off to compensate)

 

Both Craig Herrera and Bob Van Dillen worked Monday-Friday this past week. Craig did 4 days on Fox Weather First and 1 day of Weather Command. Bob did America's Weather Center the entire week. It's possible that they might be giving America's Weather Center to Bob. I noticed that on the Thursday edition of the show, they did a segment called "Bob's Bet," which was a trivia question at the end of the show between himself and the guest he was speaking to, with the stipulation that "Closest answer chooses tomorrow's music." This seems like something that you would expect to see if they're trying to shape the show around Bob.

 

As always, I won't hold my breath. We'll see what happens in future weeks.

Based on social media posts, Stephen was off for a few days because he was traveling attending a wedding and looks like he extended the trip a bit. I wonder if he’s working Saturday to reduce the amount of PTO he’d have to take…

 

regarding the rest of the schedule, it makes no sense. If viewers have an attachment to a specific meteorologist, but one day they are on 6-9, the next 9-12 it’s really hard to follow them! Why wouldn’t they just have them on consistent shows with consistent co-hosts?!? I get the rotation needed because of weekends, but why have Michael on the 6am some days, then the 9am, then the 6am, basically swapping with another met…Why not just the 6am every weekday,

This morning Marissa co-hosted FOX Weather First with Craig and Britta hosted FOX Weather Command with Bob…. I just don’t get why they randomly swap shows?!?

Amy Freeze no longer references FOX Weather on her instagram page and she has updated her LinkedIn as well indicating he has left FOX Weather…

Looks like Fox Weather was surprisingly overstaffed today. Kendall Smith joined Britta and Craig on Fox Weather First today. Can't remember the last time that show has featured three meteorologists before today.

I thought that Fox News would've aired coverage of the cane hitting the Texas coast as it made landfall in the overnight hours from Fox Weather. 

Politics and weather don’t mix well. I think with how polarized the cable news landscape has gotten we won’t see cross-over to that extent. I can see the occasional weather segment, but not a simulcast

They did a simulcast for Hurricane Ian in 2022. I believe it will take a major hurricane of catastrophic impact for that to happen again.

Makes sense.

 

not sure if it’s because of the hurricane or just because they can’t go more than a few weeks without changing the schedule up….Weather Command has been on from 8-12 as of late. Marissa may be on vacation as Michael was co-hosting with Stephen today

I noticed over the past several weeks that for the solo-hosted shows that originate from the small studio (America's Weather Center and Fox Weather @ Night), they now roll in a monitor behind the host, which displays a background similar to the stand-up desk's background in Studio W. Previously, the hosts of these shows had the small studio's natural background behind them.
