WISN (ABC)  Meteorologist Lindsey Slater is moving to “WISN 12 News This Morning” weekdays from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m., taking over for long-time WISN 12 News Meteorologist Sally Severson, who has decided to reduce her schedule to appear exclusively on “WISN 12 News at 11 a.m.”

The changes at the weather desk will take place in late August 2019.

“I’ve been bringing weather coverage to Wisconsin for over 30 years! I absolutely love doing it, but I’m ready to have a little more time for family, friends, and enjoying our weather outside of the studio,” Severson said. “This certainly isn’t an end. I’m excited to continue the 11 a.m. newscasts and be a part of my favorite WISN 12 specials and events.”

“We are delighted that Sally will remain with us, as she is a staple at our station and beloved by everyone,” said Jan Wade, president and general manager of WISN 12. “So, this isn’t goodbye, but rather a changing role. We are also fortunate to have Lindsey. She is tremendously talented, loves the morning role and will carry on our tradition of delivering quality weather coverage to all of Southeastern Wisconsin.
