McCall Vrydaghs was named Chief Meteorologist of WHIO's Storm Center 7 team of Meteorologists on November 19, 2018. Vrydaghs joined the team in 2012 and earned the coveted Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society due to her proven track record in tracking severe storms and winter weather in the Miami Valley. "I'm very excited to start this next chapter of my life," said Vrydaghs. "The Miami Valley is my home, and it means everything to me to keep families safe from severe weather by leading the very best weather team in Southwest Ohio."
Vrydaghs replaces Meteorologist Eric Elwell who is leaving the area based on a personal decision to locate closer to family.
You can watch Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs on WHIO-TV at 5-6:30pm and 11pm, Monday through Friday.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Meteorology from SUNY Oswego, New York in 2005. Soon after graduation I went to work as a meteorologist for CNN Headline News Radio in Newburgh, NY. In 2011, I made my jump to television as the weekend meteorologist for Verizon FiOS1 News. My forecasts were aired in New Jersey and across Long Island, NY. I also had the pleasure of broadcasting weather for the Yankees on the YES Network and for the Jets and Giants home games at MetLife stadium.
Some of my achievements include being awarded the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society based on my working knowledge of meteorology. I’m also honored to have placed second in the Ohio Regional APME Awards for ‘Best Weathercast’, and to be nominated for the 2016 Ohio Valley Regional Emmy Awards in the category for weather.
When I’m not on-air, I love connecting with my viewers.
