WFAA8 weekend Daybreak meteorologist heading south for higher-profile Austin job

WFAA8 weekend Daybreak meteorologist Meghan Danahey, who joined the station in 2007, is heading for Austin to become the weekday morning temperature taker for KVUE-TV, the market's ABC affiliate.

Both stations are owned by Dallas-based Belo Corp., so Danahey is moving down in market size take but moving up to a higher profile position within the company. She's replacing Ilona Torok, who resigned in March from KVUE to spend more time with her family. She had been with KVUE since 2000.

Danahey had a summer internship with former featured WFAA8 weatherman Troy Dungan before working her way back to Dallas via stints in the Wichita Falls/Lawton, TX and Fort Myers/Naples FL markets. She's a graduate of Texas A&M University and Trinity High School in Euless.

Danahey announced her departure on Saturday's weekend Daybreak program.
