WSVN-Ch. 7 has found its replacement for Elita Loresca, the morning and midday weathercaster, who was named by men's magazine FHM as the sexiest weather woman in America.
Loresca left WSVN Oct. 19 for a position with KNBC in L.A..
Julie Durda, a Sacramento, Calif., native, who has been working at KPHO in Phoenix, will take over Loresca's duties on Nov. 1.
"Julie is the perfect fit for a new Today in Florida weather anchor," WSVN vice president for news Alice Jacobs said in a statement announcing Durda's hiring. "She is knowledgeable, energetic and has a passion for weather."
