Teachman, a Wichita area native, will replace meteorologist Dave Freeman, who retired last week after 24 years at the station.
“Friends, I have some news to share,” Teachman wrote on her Facebook page. “I’m excited and honored to be returning to my hometown of Wichita as Chief Meteorologist for KSN-TV.
“Thank you KC for the last 10 years, I greatly appreciate your support and kindness!”
