Meteorologist Paul Ossmann joins the on-air staff of CBS Atlanta.
Ossmann is a familiar face to Atlanta viewers; he's been on the air here for 24 years, at both WAGA and WXIA. Now he joins the staff of CBS Atlanta News as a weekend meteorologist.
"We're happy to add Paul's experience and expertise to an already strong team of meteorologists, said News Director Eric Ludgood. "This further cements our commitment to providing the most comprehensive television weather coverage in Georgia."
Ossmann has 30 years of weather experience under his belt, and a collection of Emmys for weather reporting and hosting. His skills have even been noticed by Hollywood. It wasn't a stretch for him to play "Chief Meteorologist" in movies including The Blind Side, The Lottery Ticket, Footloose and Joyful Noise.
In his spare time, Ossmann competes in shot put in Masters Track and Field events around the country, and holds four national titles.
