KGUN is reporting that chief meteorologist Erin Christiansen has contracted Valley Fever. The ailment has sidelined her of late and KGUN management expects her to remain off television for at least another week. According to a statement, Christiansen is undergoing treatment and the prognosis is good.
In the interim, Aaron Brackett has been filling in. Brackett will transition to mornings starting next week and April Madison will handle the evening weather reports until Christiansen returns. Jessica Chapin will take care of weather updates during weekend newscasts.
