Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger joined the Eyewitness News morning team in September, 2011.
The proud Mom of two infant girls, Katie created national headlines in August, 2015, when, still working on-air while 35-weeks pregnant with her twin girls, she became the object of bullying on social media because of her baby bump. Undaunted, Katie posted her own “manifesto” on Facebook in support of pregnant Moms everywhere. The post struck a nerve, generated a flood of support and struck a blow against body shaming everywhere.
Previously, Katie had been the weekend morning news forecaster for WCBS in New York. Before coming to CBS, she was a forecaster for nearly five years at AccuWeather, Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. While at AccuWeather, Katie served as a regular football, baseball, and hockey game day weather reporter for several regional Fox Sports Networks, NESN, YES, and the Big Ten Network. She has appeared on a host of other major networks including FOX News, FOX Business, ESPN and ABC. Fehlinger’s reports brought a niche emphasis to climate change issues and the weather’s effects on sports.
A Lehigh Valley native, Katie began her broadcasting career there at RCN 4 in Bath, Pennsylvania and later did feature reporting for WLVT-TV’s Emmy award-winning news/magazine show Tempo! In 2006 she switched her focus to weather – and her passion for meteorology has grown ever since.
Katie graduated summa cum laude from Cedar Crest College in Allentown with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She also holds a Bachelor of Sciences degree in geosciences from Mississippi State University.
Katie, her husband and their two daughters now reside in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
