At that ever-revolving door at KING-5, Jordan Steele, meteorologist & former host of the now cancelled  “Take 5” afternoon show has departed the station to take up a new position hosting a new program on behalf of  The Weather Channel.  “Weather Today” will join Quibi’s Daily Essentials category of programming, launching on April 6.  This brand new show from The Weather Channel television network, that will debut on the mobile-first short form video platform Quibi. It will be a three-to-five minute show airing seven days a week that features the most important weather news stories of the day as well as a national forecast.  We’ve also learned that Rebecca Stevenson is now a permanent member of the KING-5 weather team & will eventually end up on air on a regular basis.

  1. I was REALLY put off by JOrdan Steele- such a BIg EGo- he wanted WAY more than to be a meterorologist- wanted his own show. Not my cup of tea, but doubt he’s “landed’ where he wanted to be- meterology not his schtick.
    he wanted way more!

    1. Lorrie, I 100% agree with you! But just saw him a couple of day’s ago, couldn’t believe he was the same guy? Someone on the Weather Channel has been working hard on making him palatable! Totally different person…I guess there may be hope for me?

  2. Absolutely disagree with these mean comments about Jordan Steele. He was my favorite both as a brilliant and engaging meteorologist and as a reporter. I happen to know that he did outreach to be inclusive on important stories. He was far more than “palatable.” And I so appreciated him as a devoted and loving dad, including to his beautiful son with special needs. I have so missed Jordan and pray he and his family are doing well in their new lives.

      I agree whole heartedly with everything you said Kyle.
      Kudos to you for sticking up for Jordan!!!
      I miss his great disposition and cheery outlook!
