New meteorologist hired for Storm Team 8

Posted: Updated:

Just four days after WFLA-TV announced the addition of meteorologist Bryan Bennett, the WFLA-TV Storm Team is expanding again.

Thursday, news director Don North announced that Julie Phillips will be joining the Storm Team, starting June 10th.

Phillips is currently the morning meteorologist at KTXS in Abilene, Texas, where she has worked for three years.

She is a graduate of the University of Miami, where she majored in meteorology and broadcast journalism.

Chief meteorologist Steve Jerve said, "I'm very excited to be adding Julie, and more recently, Bryan Bennett to Storm Team 8.  They are both well educated and experienced meteorologists with Florida forecasting experience.  They'll fit well with our tradition of excellence and team work at News Channel 8."

 Phillips replaces Brooks Garner, who left WFLA-TV last month, for a job in Houston, Texas.
