GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - After seven years with WOOD-TV, Meteorologist Laura Velasquez is taking her forecasts to new heights.
Laura will be trading in the Great Lakes for the Rocky Mountains as she has accepted a job with KDVR-TV in Denver, Colo.
"We've watched her grow from an intern to a respected scientist and professional meteorologist. Laura spent tireless hours working to get her AWS and NWA seals while keeping West Michigan viewers on top of the changing weather conditions," said WOOD-TV News Director Rebecca Sapakie.
