Wesla Wong has traded a microphone for a pair of skis.

SilverStar Mountain Resort has announced Wong has joined the Star and will be building sales relationships in Kelowna, representing SilverStar at various Okanagan events and planning FAM tours.

Wong was an on-air meteorologist on Global Television before switching to the Star.

A release from SilverStar said, “Now she combines her weather knowledge with her media experience to make sure you will always know when your next powder day will be.

“Growing up in BC, Wesla appreciated the outdoors so much that she decided to study meteorology at Mississippi State University to learn how to predict the elements. The first thing that she does every morning is look out her window and analyzes the cloud and sky conditions.”

According to her Twitter feed, she left due to bullying and her husband, a (now former) meteorologist with Global, also resigned. They are now working together.

There is a lot of toxicity here regarding people’s voices, hair and “mannequin” appearances that are quite frankly unproductive and negative to a real discussion of the media landscape’s demise. Dialogue on the content we are presented with is important for the future of media. The personal attacks take away from the real issues and discredit us all. We can do better.

just saying version 2.0

Do you live in the Okanagan ? Well, I do, and Wesla Wong was a very decent hire and a good replacement for the retiring Mike Roberts. perhaps the most likeable on air personality in the Okanagan of all time. However, when the Shaw head office decided to cut back the Global Okanagan evening news with talent from Toronto, that was a slap in the face to Okanagan residents. For over 50 years, this town has had an evening tv news show, but no longer. I think that CHBC has been going downhill for years. First, they cut back over 70 staff a few years ago, including Pat Kennedy, the sports director. Now, evening news is live from Toronto LOL What’s next, Toronto traffic accidents from the Don Valley Parkway ! I don’t blame Wesla for quitting and moving on to Silver Star doing sales. The Kelowna tv station is headed to the dumpster.

“She left due to bullying”?
“Bullying” is an over-used term these days, when it’s applied to ADULT situations.
Bullying is what grade 5 and 6 children do on playgrounds.
Adults are not 10/11 years old.

Lets use ADULT terms.
“Harassed”, “Demeaned” …”

There’s always two sides to every story, @Larry Jordan If harassment actually took place, let’s get reaction from Global Okanagan management, as well. To be honest, it’s not the first time that I have heard of harassment from CHBC. However,, when I posted a comment a few years on this subject, it got quickly deleted by Micheal Easton. So, regarding this latest accusation, I guess I’ll just keep quiet about it and then. my post will not get deleted ? sigh
