Fiona Gorostiza will be joining Fox4's weather team, filling the vacancy left in April by Maria Sotolongo.
Gorostiza arrives from KMIR-TV in Palm Springs, CA, where she did the early morning forecasting. It's a big jump in market size, from No. 144 to No. 5 Dallas-Fort Worth. Dan Henry and Evan Andrews respectively will remain the principal early morning and evening weather anchors at Fox4.
Sotolongo, who also did entertainment reporting for Fox4, left the station to spend more time with her baby daughter, Ysabel.
Gorostiza spent two years at KMIR, an NBC affiliate, after arriving from KCOY-TV in Santa Maria, CA. Her picture and biography already have been removed from KMIR's Web site. But there's ample youtube footage of Gorostiza, who knows how to have a good time on the air. Here's footage of her dancing in front of KMIR's seven-day forecast graphic:
