WPXI Weathermen switch; Burton leaving KDKA-FM

WPXI-TV (11) has reassigned Mike LaPoint to weekends. In turn, long-time weekend meteorologist Kevin Benson has moved to weekday mornings. The Post-Gazette reported Wednesday that the move was made last weekend. Benson has been with the station as weekend and fill-in meteorologist since the late 1980’s. LaPoint joined the station as Chief Meteorologist before being reassigned to mornings with the re-arrival of Julie Bologna as chief prior to Stephen Cropper.

The PG also reports that Jon Burton will be leaving KDKA-FM (93.7) after May 3. He has been with the station since the format flip in 2010 and was at WTAE-TV for eight years prior. He is headed to WTVF-TV in Nashville.
