Native Maritimer to lead both evening newscasts at the station where his meteorological career began

HALIFAX, Dec. 13 /CNW/ - Global Maritimes is pleased to announce the return of meteorologist Trevor Adams to its weekday news team. Beginning this Monday, December 13, Adams will use his extensive meteorological skills, and vast knowledge of Maritimes climate patterns to provide Global viewers with the most precise and up-to-date weather information in the region. Adams can be seen weeknights on Global Maritimes' Evening News at 6:00 pm, and at 11:00 pm on the News Final newscast.

"Bringing someone of Trevor's calibre back to Global represents our continued dedication to providing Maritimers with the most informative and locally-relevant newscasts possible," said Troy Reeb, Vice President, Global News. "Trevor's experience across the Maritimes has earned him the respect of his peers and the trust of the community alike. His expertise and extensive meteorological training are a huge advantage in giving our viewers the accurate weather information they need to plan their day."
