Weather Channel Hires Georgia Native Mohr

Samantha Mohr, the former chief meteorologist for KPIX-TV in San Francisco, has been hired as on-camera meteorologist at The Weather Channel. She can be seen with Dao Vu and Bill Keneely on Weekend View, airing 7-11 a.m. ET on weekend days.

At KPIX-TV, Mohr won an Emmy in 2004 for “Best Weathercast in Northern California,” which included a report on the San Francisco fog phenomenon. In 2003 she won the AP award for best weathercast in Northern California. She also held meteorologist jobs at KTVK in Phoenix (monsoon thunderstorms, dust storms) and KRIV-TV in Houston (tropical storms, Hurricane Gilbert).

A Columbus, Ga., native who earned a broadcast meteorology degree from the University of Saint Thomas in Houston, Mohr got interested in weather during her teen years after a tornado picked up a nearby stable and wrapped it around the pine trees in her backyard.
