Joel Nichols to join KSHB this summer

Another popular weatherman is back on the air in Kansas City. The Pitch reports erstwhile KMBC meteorologist Joel Nichols will join KSHB this summer.

Nichols left KMBC under mysterious circumstances, just like newly minted KCTV meteorologist Lisa Teachman, who joined the station last week.

And it looks like KCTV is looking for another meteorologist to join its team.

UPDATE: The Star reports it’s unclear what role Nichols will take. He is not a certified meteorologist:

A KSHB source says that Nichols might do some weather there but it wouldn’t be his primary focus.

One strong possibility: co-hosting the station’s lifestyle show “Kansas City Live,” which airs at 10 a.m. weekdays. KSHB recently posted a job opening for co-host.

KSHB might also need a personality to attach to one of its two secondary digital channels, Cozi TV and Bounce. Cozi is a “classic TV” station in the mold of Me TV and Antenna TV, managed in the KC market by KMBC and WDAF, respectively. Bounce is targeted at an African-American audience.
