CBS 2's lead weather anchor Lonnie Quinn welcomed the newest member of the weather team today at 5:18 (watch this clip on wcbstv.com). "I've worked with you in different parts of the country before" he said. "I think you're fabulous." Glaros appeared on the right side of the split screen, reporting live from the USS Kearsarge for Fleet Week coverage. Quinn added, "I love that lady." Both Quinn and Glaros did morning weather in Miami at WTVJ and WPLG, respectively.
"This is the best first day I could possibly have imagined," Glaros said after Lonnie tossed to her. She spoke with a major in the U.S. Marines, who was with her on the deck of the USS Kearsarge. Glaros returned at 5:52 with a package that took viewers inside the Metoc office where the ship's crew makes its weather forecasts. She also appeared during the evening's third forecast at 6:18. "Welcome to the team," Quinn said. "I'm proud to have you on."
Of course this isn't Glaros' first sighting on CBS 2. Since last Saturday, she's been appearing in updated weather factoid promos for the summer. The station also began airing a five-second ID saying, "CBS 2 HD welcomes Megan Glaros."
