Is Samantha Mohr being pushed out now, too?

Postby spike » Sat Aug 13, 2011 8:49 am

I know she is a newcomer to TWC comparatively speaking, but she has put out several cryptic messages on facebook and twitter about her role being "changed". She is only on at odd hours or as a fill in on the weekends. Any word on what's going on with her? I know she is an avid triathalon participant and is training, too.

Would be a shame to see her depart if this is what they are doing.

Isn't this past saying it's a darn shame? I can't really say that I watch the weather channel much anymore so I didn't really notice.

Thanks for the feedback. Will only be a matter of time before the last remaining "old regime" OCM's get the same treatment.
Kelly, Heather etc.

I think Samantha is a class act... but IMO, her age is a detriment to the marketing on TWC.

Wouldn't this be age discrimination?

Yes, which is what I am getting at. She is still has good on air skills and personality and is in great physical shape. I figure she's had enough of the crap from the Peacock and is going out on her own terms.

Is Samantha Mohr still there at the weather channel? I haven't watched in a while.

I see that no one answered my question from before. I guess the board was closed to posting because of spam for awhile?? Anyhow, I think she is still working a little and not totally out.

Samantha Mohr is now working part time in Atlanta. Good luck to her!

So she is gone now from TWC? I hardly watch anymore, peek in sometimes for local forecast, but with all of the NBC fluff, it's hard to watch. Best wishes to Ms. Mohr.

I know what you mean Spike. I think that Samantha filled in for a while before leaving.

Yeah, sticking her on the wee hours at two hour windows. That is a sure sign that an employer wants you. Tough break for a hard working pro who left her chief meteorologist role in SF to drag her husband to Atlanta just for a two or three year stint. (Even if she originally came from the south.) Not easy for a 40-something person to jump back into a full time role. Try convincing any major network of that, even if you have maintained yourself like her.
