After graduating from California’s Loyola Marymount University with a degree in fine arts, Meg McNamara worked on Dr. Phil from 2008 to 2010. In her time as a production assistant and later talent coordinator on the show, she was drawn to storytelling.
McNamara switched from behind the camera to broadcasting. She made her broadcasting debut in 2012, anchoring on the Lewiston, Idaho station KLEW-TV.
She filled in for the weatherperson at KLEW once and wanted to do more weather broadcasts. Interestingly, she won the Best Weathercast Award from the Idaho Press Club while working at KLEW-TV.
With a newfound passion for covering weather on TV, McNamara moved to Florida in 2014. She covered the weather on WEAR-TV on weekends initially and later did the weekday morning forecasts while also tracking severe weather along the Gulf Coast.
McNamara moved to Baltimore, Maryland in 2017. She joined the local CBS affiliate WJZ-TV’s First Warning Weather team giving her the opportunity to cover the four main seasons for the first time in her meteorology career.
The meteorologist took a brief break from CBS Baltimore when she married. As of April 9, she is on maternity leave while expecting her first child.
She missed her last day on air before her break due to being sick. Hence, she couldn’t address CBS Baltimore viewers or meet her colleagues. But she will be back on CBS Baltimore after her baby is born and her leave ends.
McNamara is also actively involved in community outreach programs and frequently volunteers at local schools in Baltimore, where she educates students about the importance of weather safety.
Meg McNamara’s Husband and Kids
Meg McNamara tied the knot with Timothy Witham on January 30, 2021, in Baltimore. She and her family shared the news on their respective social media.
The weatherwoman’s husband, Dr. Timothy Witham, specializes in orthopedic and neurosurgery. He is the director of the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery Spinal Fusion Laboratory and a professor of neurosurgery.
Dr Witham has two grown sons, Ben and Andrew, from a previous relationship. Both boys feature on Meg’s Instagram on some occasions. Andrew is a student-athlete who played basketball and is currently a student at Denison.
Andrew and Ben are going to have one more brother soon. McNamara announced she’s expecting a baby boy in a November 2022 social media post. She’s been working on air through most of her pregnancy before going on leave.
McNamara and Witham welcomed their son, Cannon Theodore “Teddy” Witham arrived on April 19, 2023. She announced it a few days later on Instagram.
McNamara has celebrated her first Mother’s Day with Teddy since. Teddy is also getting doted on by his older brothers, including joining Andrew for his senior prom pictures.
