Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger joined CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s morning news team in September, 2011.
Previously, Fehlinger had been the weekend morning news forecaster for WCBS in New York. Before coming to CBS, Fehlinger was a forecaster for nearly five years at AccuWeather, Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. While at AccuWeather, Fehlinger 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, Fehlinger began her broadcasting career there at RCN 4 located 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. Her first-ever live shot was an update for FOX News on the tornadoes ripping through the Midwest. “I never had a more exciting moment professionally,” says Fehlinger. “I knew I had chosen the right career.”
Fehlinger 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.
Fehlinger now resides in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
