Weekend View is a weekend weather program on The Weather Channel, airing from 5-11 a.m. Eastern Time. Because of this timeslot, it can be considered the weekend equivalent to Your Weather Today, although it airs for six hours in comparison to the three-hour time length of Your Weather Today. Weekend View includes local and national outlooks for the day as well as lifestyle segments.

Program history

Weekend View's initial launch date was planned for September 17, 2005, but its premiere was delayed two weeks due to the busy 2005 hurricane season. Initial plans for the program, then hosted by Dao Vu and meteorlogists Bill Keneely, Kelly Cass and Stephanie Abrams included an accompanying primetime talk show to debut in the second quarter of 2006, though those plans never came to fruition.[1]

In the fall of 2006, meteorologist Stephanie Abrams left the program to co-host Abrams & Bettes: Beyond the Forecast with Mike Bettes and was not replaced. Later, in September 2007, meteorologist Samantha Mohr joined The Weather Channel to replace Kelly Cass, who moved to PM Edition. This move proved to be short-lived, as Cass returned to the program in May 2008. In April 2008, Vu (only the second non-meteorologist to ever host a live weather program on the channel; the other being Liz Jarvis-Fabian, who worked for the channel from 1986 to 1989) left and was not replaced.

On March 7, 2009, Weekend View expanded by two hours from 5-11 a.m. ET. At this point, Bill Keneely, the only host to remain with the show from the beginning of its run was moved to the weekend late night edition of PM Edition, while Betty Davis joined Kelly Cass on the 7-11 a.m. block. Jeff Morrow and Alex Wallace host the new 5-7 a.m. block. On July 31, 2010, Betty Davis left Weekend View, and departed from The Weather Channel as well; Maria LaRosa became her official replacement. In November 2010, Kelly Cass moved to Weather Center Live and Maria LaRosa joined Todd Santos for Weekend Now. Jen Carfagno and Eric Fisher became their replacements for the 7 a.m.-11 a.m. Eastern Time edition.

From March-July 2012 Maria LaRosa filled in for Jen Carfagno as co-host of the 7-11 am edition of Weekend View. Jen Carfagno moved to Your Weather Today anchoring from 9-10am alongside Mike Bettes.

In July 2012, several changes were made to the program. Jen Carfagno moved back to Weekend View with Eric Fisher while Maria LaRosa moved to the 5:30am-6:00am edition of First Outlook and Your Weather Today from 9-10 AM .Danielle Banks began co-hosting the 5:00-7:00am edition with Jeff Morrow while Alex Wallace was moved to First Outlook from 4:00am-5:30am .Lastly Julie Martin also joined the program as a digital media correspondent
