It didn’t take long for WIAT in Birmingham, AL to come up with a replacement for Mark Prater, who suddenly disappeared from the airwaves last month after ten years with the station.

Ashley Gann, who’s been on the morning forecasting beat since 2015, is stepping up to take over the duties.

She’s excited.
“I am so excited to be given the opportunity to lead this outstanding weather team at CBS 42. We are committed to serving this community daily and bringing the best weather coverage. We are a team you can trust,” said Ashley.

This isn’t her first rodeo as a chief meteorologist.

Previously, she held that role for Alabama News Network in Montgomery, Alabama.

She’s also worked in Atlanta, Meridian, MS, Lincoln, NE and Savannah, GA.

And she’s a certified Storm Spotter, so there’s that.
