Dallas-based WFAA8 has tabbed Colleen Coyle from CBS affiliate KPSP-TV to be the new Daybreak weekend meteorologist. A posting on the show's Facebook page says her first day at the station will be on Wednesday, July 14th.
KPSP serves Palm Springs, CA and the Coachella Valley, where the summer weather is invariably dry and in the triple digits. Coyle did the early morning weekday forecasts for the station. She is originally from Atlanta and describes herself as "a bit of a daredevil" who loves bungee jumping, roller coasters and chasing tornadoes. She spent about a year-and-a-half at KPSP before jumping from TV market No. 142 to D-FW, which is No. 5.
