Former TEGNA8 meteorologist Wes Houx lands at CBS11 -- for now at least

Meteorologist Wes Houx quickly has found a new D-FW home -- at least for the time being.

CBS11 director of communications Lori Conrad confirmed Wednesday night that the former TEGNA weekend weathercaster has been hired as a freelancer and will “be filling in as needed.”

On Friday of last week, the station abruptly dropped meteorologist Lisa Villegas. Conrad also noted that another member of the CBS11 weather team, Jeff Jamison, begins a vacation on Thursday, March 9th.

Houx had joined TEGNA8 in May 2015, replacing Julie Bologna. But the station dropped him late last year, and his last day at TEGNA8 was on Dec. 4th. The station immediately hired Kyle Roberts from Oklahoma City’s KOKH-TV to replace him. Roberts was hired as a full-time news staffer. Houx had sought to be upgraded from his part-time status, but to no avail.
