Fort Worth-based NBC5 is replenishing its weather team with Keisha Burns, who is scheduled to start at the station on Feb. 27th.
She replaces Remeisha Shade, who left NBC5 in late November after a six-year stay. Neither party has been willing to comment any further on the reasons for her departure.
Burns is joining NBC5 from Seattle’s NBC affiliate, KING-TV, and NWCN (Northwest Cable News), which recently went off the air. She spent the last seven years in Seattle. Burns also has worked at Bend, Oregon’s KTVZ-TV.
In making the announcement late Monday afternoon, NBC5 vice president of news Mark Ginther said that Burns “primarily will work mornings,” with a regular assignment on the weekend A.M. newscasts. She’ll also “assist” on some weekday morning editions. Incumbent meteorologist Brian James will move from weekend mornings to evenings.
Burns grew up in Southern California, but also has family in North Texas, Ginther said.
