Hi friends! I wanted to let you all know that tomorrow is my last day with FOX Carolina. I will start a new job with The Weather Channel in March Ė so while Iím leaving the Upstate, Iíll still be on your television! Itís been a pleasure bringing you all the forecast each morning, and Iíve really enjoyed getting to know many of you on Facebook. Youíre in great hands with Kendra and Andy Ė they are great meteorologists, so stick with the FOX Carolina Weather Team! Thanks again for a great three years!

Now how in the world did I manage to randomly run across this information? Ironically, it was once again it was the American WX forums. :P

IDK, but my guess is she might start off filling in for Crystal Egger once she's on maternity leave. That's just my opinion though. :dunno:

Well, this is good, I am looking forward to seeing her. Does anyone know the exact date she'll start on?

I'd guess Julie Martin might get the offer to sub for Crystal and Alexandra gets the weekend 11am-2pm time slots that Danielle is doing.

I noticed that on TWC people are referring to her as "Alex Wilson." Do you guys think it was her choice or TWC forced her to be referred to as Alex? Her voice also seems drastically different on TWC then she did on FOX Carolina. :thinking:

They made her into Crystal Egger's clone from day one unfortunately.

On a serious note, the name shortening is odd and I'm more inclined to believe it wasn't her choice.

Well, didn't they refer to Alexandra Steele as "Alexandra"?  Now I can't remember.  I mean, I know Alexandra is a long name to say, but c'mon.  If that's her name, then that's her name.

When she was at TWC and since going to CNN, Alexandra Steele is always refereed to as Alexandra on the lower thirds.

I liked her when she was covering WCL after the Moore tornado. She was very professional and serious about what had happened, it's tough for a new gal like her to cover something like this so soon. She was the only one reporting from the live desk.
hai.
