Christina Talamo started her broadcast career at WNYT, so Albany residents would agree that there’s no way but up for her career. Recently, she was absent from her usual weekend weathercast on NewsChannel 13, which prompted regular viewers to ask what happened to her. However, the meteorologist is not leaving WYNT as some feared. In fact, Talamo has earned a well-deserved promotion at the station. Find out when you can catch Christina Talamo on air here.
Christina Talamo Promoted at WNYT
While attending the University at Albany, the State University of New York (SUNY), Christina Talamo interned at the New York State Mesonet and WNBC News 4 New York. She was also a correspondent at Global Weather and Climate Center and interned at the National Weather Service in Albany.
Talamo received a Bachelor’s in atmospheric science and meteorology in 2020. She was hired by WNYT NewsChannel 13 soon after, initially joining Neal Estano on weekday morning forecasts.
Recently, Talamo did the weather coverage solo on weekends. In early March, she gave a send-off to her mentor, Estano, on his last day at WNYT.
Talamo was missing from her usual weekend time slot recently. She later took to social media to debunk speculation that she was leaving NewsChannel 13.
According to an official statement by WNYT on March 29, Christina Talamo has been promoted to weekday mornings. She will now be on air Monday through Friday, 5 to 7 a.m.
“It’s been a pleasure working mornings with Neal Estano these last couple years and I know I have big shoes to fill,” the meteorologist wrote about her promotion on social media.
Since the announcement, NewsChannel 13 viewers have flooded Talamo’s social media pages with congratulatory wishes. They’re now looking forward to starting weekday mornings with Christina Talamo’s weathercasts.
