Meteorologist Anthony Peoples will join CBS4 WHBF-TV as morning meteorologist on Feb. 25, and appear on the air starting March 4.

Mr. Peoples spent the last seven years as an on-air meteorologist at WQAD-TV, the ABC affiliate in the market. Before his arrival in the Quad-Cities in 2005, he worked in news and meteorology in a variety of television markets in Maryland, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin, according to a WHBF news release.

On CBS4 News This Morning, Mr. Peoples will be paired with Meredith Dennis (formerly Haley), who joined the CBS4 News team in August 2011 with the launch of CBS4 News This Morning.

"Having someone with Anthony's credentials and commitment to our market can only be a positive," said WHBF-TV General Manager Marshall Porter, "and we think he and Meredith will make a dynamic team and will be a great way to start your morning on CBS4."
