KPIX promotes longtime weekend weatherman

Karnow and Martin  
KPIX has promoted longtime weekend weathercaster Lawrence Karnow to weekdays. He’ll be on the morning and noon newscasts.

Erika Martin, formerly with KCRA Sacramento, has replaced him on weekends.

Karnow, who grew up in Salinas, began his career at KSBW and joined KPIX in 1997.

“We have been very fortunate to have an individual of such expertise as Lawrence hold down the weather fort on weekends for many years.  Now, it is especially gratifying to move our ‘home grown’ meteorologist into this significantly larger role within the news organization” said President and General Manager Ron Longinotti, in announcing the move.

Karnow's wife, Sharon Chin is a freelance reporter at CBS 5.
