The Weather Channel On-Air Changes (2015-present) Edit

The Weather Channel made a big announcement in September 2015 that all production of reality shows would stop and The Weather Channel would begin to head towards a 24/7 network, which led them to welcoming back Alexandra Steele and Samantha Mohr to the network. Alexandra Steele still fills in, but Samantha Mohr does work for WXIA and will rarely appear on TWC, she does though still work for The Weather Channel. The first really big change was the exit of Weather Channel Meteorologist Vivian Brown. Later that week, 'Wake Up With Al' was cancelled sending Al Roker to 'The Lift' weekday mornings from 6:00-11:00am on The Weather Channel App with Domenica Davis and Ari Sarsalari and sending Stephanie Abrams back to Atlanta for 'AMHQ' weekdays from 7:00-10:00am with Sam Champion, Jennifer Delgado, Jim Cantore and Anaridis Rodriguez.

Then, Sam Champion and Jennifer Delgado departed AMHQ. Jennifer Delgado moved to 'Weather Center Live' weekdays from 9:00am-12:00pm and Sam Champion to '23.5 Degrees' Tuesdays from 11:00pm-12:00am. AMHQ was revamped with Stephanie Abrams, Jim Cantore, Jen Carfagno and Anaridis Rodriguez. Kait Parker then announced her departure from 'AMHQ Weekend' and The Weather Channel. She later returned to the network weeks after but now she fills in on 'The Lift' with Al Roker and Domenica Davis and also works on 'Good Morning America Weekend'. During the change, Ari Sarsalari launched a new Weather Channel App show called 'The Ari Effect' airing weekdays from 4:00-9:00pm, sending him off 'The Lift'. Kait Parker, Danielle Banks and Tom Moore regularly fill-in.

In May of 2016, The Weather Channel shifted afternoon programming which brought in a different 'Weather Center Live' which was on 2 hours each with one host from 9:00-11:00am, 11:00am-1:00pm and 1:00-3:00pm. Alex Wallace and Mark Elliot were separated from the 12:00-3:00pm show. Alex moving 9:00-11:00am and Mark moving 11:00am-1:00pm. Dave Schwartz and Alex Wilson which aired 3:00-6:00pm were also broken up. Moving, Dave Schwartz to 1:00-3:00pm and Alex Wilson joined Mike Bettes as host on 'Weather Underground' weeknights from 6:00-8:00pm. Chris Warren and Jennifer Delgado were shifted off the 9:00am-12:00 Noon show and were moved to 3:00-6:00pm. Dan Lenoard and Crystal Egger usually contributed on the 9:00am-12:00 Noon show, but they now also appear during the 3:00-6:00pm show now. The reason was to have less hosts on-air to help expand the 24/7 outlet. It moved Sarah Dillingham off of 'WUTV'. The Weather Channel now has a 9:00pm-12:00am or (1:00am) show which usually is Keith Carson, Carl Parker and Sarah Dillingham only on Severe Weather days.

In early June, Anaridis Rodriguez went on Maternity Leave from 'AMHQ' and many fans wondered where she went. She returned to the network in late August. Kelly Cass and Reynolds Wolf rotate in on AMHQ to fill-in for her. With them working weekdays they are missing 'AMHQ Weekend' a lot. Nick Walker is now a regular fill-in while Greg Postel remains most weekends. (Anaridis Rodriguez returned Monday August 8th)

The Weather Channel then announced on July 7th, 2016 that a new show will be airing on Sundays only (similar to WX Geeks which only airs Sundays at Noon) and the show would begin on Sunday July 24th, but airing in the primetime slot of 9:00-10:00pm Sundays. The hosts will change weekly and Stephanie Abrams would launch the show as the first host.

On Sunday July 31st, The Weather Channel launched a new show called "Top 10", the topic changes each week as it airs Sundays from 9:00-10:00pm EDT and Stephanie Abrams is the host of the show. Jim Cantore will fill-in when Stephanie is out.

On Monday August 1st, Alex Wallace left his 9:00-11:00am show and Mark Elliot left his 11:00am-1:00pm show while Dave Schwartz's 1:00-3:00pm show was cancelled.

On Thursday January 12th, Severe Weather Expert Dr. Greg Forbes will be stepping down to a Part Time Severe Weather Expert. He said he is stepping down to enjoy life as he has turned 66 years old. Which will mean a new Severe Weather Expert will step up.

On Sunday January 15th, The Weather Channel announced behind the scenes meteorologist Erika Navarro would be moving up to an on-camera role at TWC. She has officially joined as 'Weather Center Live' host 11am-3pm joining Mark Elliot & Alex Wallace.

Early in the year around January 2nd, Jennifer Delgado stopped appearing on air. It was confirmed Liana Brackett would be joining Chris Warren as the new co-host on Weather Center Live from 3-6pm replacing Jennifer Delgado. Jennifer Delgado fell and injured her leg and was assigned bed rest.
