CBS 5's Samantha Mohr leaving for Atlanta
After six years at KPIX CBS 5, Chief Meteorologist Samantha Mohr (pictured) is leaving for Atlanta. She announced her departure on the air a few days before she was about to switch shifts with morning weather anchor Roberta Gonzales. The station moved Gonzales, previously the morning weather anchor, to the weeknight shows, and Mohr was going to take the morning shift. But before the switch took place, Mohr resigned. Her picture and bio have been removed from the CBS 5 Web site. In 2004 she won an Emmy for Best Weathercast in Northern California which included a report on the San Francisco Fog Phenomenon. In 2003 she won the AP award for Best Weathercast in Northern California, and the Radio-Television News Directors Award for Best Weather Segment/Story. She came to Channel 5 after 12 years at KTVK in Phoenix. She is originally from Georgia.
