Program history Edit
Weekend View was supposed to debut on September 17, 2005, but it was delayed to October 1, 2005 due to the busy Atlantic hurricane season. Initial plans included a primetime talk show in the second quarter of 2006, but that never came to function.
In fall 2006, Stephanie Abrams left the show for Abrams & Bettes Beyond the Forecast with Mike Bettes and was not replaced. A year later, Samantha Mohr joined The Weather Channel to replace Kelly Cass, who moved to PM Edition. Cass returned to the program in May 2008. In April of that year, Dao Vu (who was the second non-meteorologist to host a live program, the other being Liz Jarvis-Fabian, who was with The Weather Channel from 1986 to 1989) left and was not replaced.
In March 2009, Weekend View was extended to 5-11 a.m. ET, replacing Weekend Outlook. By this point Bill Keneely was moved to PM Edition, and Betty Davis joined Kelly Cass on the 7-11 a.m. block. Jeff Morrow and Alex Wallace hosted the new 5-7 a.m. block.
In July 2010, Betty Davis left the show and The Weather Channel. She was replaced by Maria LaRosa.
In July 2012, Wallace left for First Outlook, and was replaced by Danielle Banks. In October, Morrow left The Weather Channel, and was replaced by Ray Stagich. In November, Banks left for Weekend Now and Weather Center Live, but was not replaced.
In July 2013, Eric Fisher left The Weather Channel, and was replaced by Reynolds Wolf.
On November 10, 2013, Weekend View aired its last broadcast. It was replaced by Weather Center Live on November 16, as part of the 2013 relaunch of The Weather Channel.
