Joe DeCarlo joins KIII 3 Corpus Christi

Joe DeCarlo joins KIII 3 Corpus Christi as a weekend meteorologist from Fox West Texas KIDY San Angelo.

"I am thrilled to announce that I have accepted a job @kiii3news in Corpus Christi, TX," DeCarlo tweeted.  "I am very excited to move down to the Coastal Bend and join the #1 news team in South Texas and to be staying in @TEGNA. I can't wait to move down to the coast and get started!"

He replaces Alan Holt who moved to evenings after Bill Vessey retired earlier in 2021. That means weekend meteorologist Ryan Shoptaugh moved to mornings, hence Decarlo's hiring.

DeCarlo had worked as an meteorologist/anchor with Fox West Texas since June 2019.

The University of Oklahoma graduate interned with DTN, Weather Decision Technologies Inc. and Meisinger Aviation, LLC.  

Growing up in Chicago, DeCarlo cites WGN's Tom Skilling and NBC5 WMAQ's Brant Miller as influences.
