Dallas-based Fox4 has filled its weekend meteorologist vacancy by hiring Ali Turiano from Orlando-based News13, a cable station servicing the greater Central Florida region.

Her first day will be May 28th, Fox4 said in an announcement Tuesday. Turiano will replace Ron Jackson, who spent 32 years at the station before telling viewers in February that he was retiring.

“I have always dreamed of being a part of the Dallas community and am looking forward to calling the ‘Big D’ my home,” Turiano said in the Fox4 publicity release.

The Pennsylvania State University graduate spent six years at News13 and also has worked at TV stations in Elmira, NY, Erie, PA and Tampa, FL.

Women meteorologists are in ascendance at three of D-FW’s four major TV news providers.

Fox4’s weather team also includes Jennifer Myers, NBC5 deploys Remeisha Shade, Lindsey Riley and Samantha Davies, and WFAA8 has Colleen Coyle and Julia Bologna. CBS11 currently has no women on its four-member “Storm Team.” Men are still the chief meteorologists at all four stations.
