With the expansion of its weekday morning news block to six hours this fall, WGN-Channel 9 is beefing up its on-air weather staff.
Joining meteorologist Paul Konrad on “WGN Morning News” is Demetrius Ivory, who’ll sign on next month from WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh. Greg Caputo, news director of the Tribune Broadcasting station, confirmed the hire in an email to WGN staffers.
Before he joined WTAE as morning meteorologist in 2005, Ivory worked at WYTV-TV in Youngstown, Ohio, and WOHL-TV in Lima, Ohio. He’s an Ohio native and a graduate of Ohio State University.
