Fox 29 hires Weather Channel anchor as permanent Bolaris replacement

Fox 29 has hired Weather Channel morning anchor Scott Williams as its new chief meteorologist, finally installing a permanent replacement for John Bolaris who left the station in January.

Williams will do weather on the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts and starts on-air June 4 a station spokeswoman confirms.

While Williams hasn't worked in Philadelphia, he certainly enjoys the city's musical output. His Weather Channel bio lists "Love" by Musiq Soulchild and "End of the Road" by Boyz II Men among his favorite songs.
