A Beaver Falls native, who was previously an intern at KDKA-TV, is poised to join the station as a meteorologist.

Mary Ours shared the news on social media this week. She has been a weekday meteorologist at WJAC in Johnstown since 2016.

Ours grew up in Beaver Falls and is a 2008 graduate of Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland, according to her Facebook biography.

She is a 2012 Point Park University graduate and earned her meteorology certification through Mississippi State University.

Ours interned at KDKA when she was at Point Park. “My dream has come true and I’m heading back near my hometown to join the amazing team of meteorologists at KDKA,” Ours wrote in a Facebook post. “I can’t wait to be doing what I love in the city that I love!”

Prior to working in Johnstown, Ours worked at WTOV in Steubenville.

KDKA didn’t return requests for comment and Ours deferred to her social media comments when asked about the news. Friday is her last day in Johnstown.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
