TEGNA8 adds Jesse Hawila to weather team

Dallas-based TEGNA8’s new weekend P.M. meteorologist is Jesse Hawila, who replaces Ashton Altieri.

Hawila, who’s already on the air, will also work some weekday shifts as a full-time weathercaster. He arrives from CBS affiliate KCTV-TV in Kansas City after first joining that station in March 2015 from Fort Wayne, Indiana’s WANE-TV (where he spent two years).

Hawila recently married KCTV-TV reporter Elizabeth Rentschler, who is making the move to Dallas with him. Incumbent TEGNA8 meteorologist Colleen Coyle first publicized Hawila’s hiring in a late October post on her Facebook page. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Robert Philpot also has posted the news.

Altieri, who left TEGNA8 in August, is now with Denver’s CBS station, KCNC-TV.
