The weather forecaster Maria Genero also split her duties on 5, 5:30, 6, 10, and 11 pm weekly newscasts of Channel 2 with Heather Waldman. Starting in late August, she was part of the three early evening newscasts on a Monday-through-Friday shift. Until then, she remained on the weekend edition of the morning program "Daybreak" and is involved in the early evening newscasts Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
The two women were given the responsibility after their former forecaster Kevin O’Connell left the show in July 2018. It is also believed to be a history in the evening newscast in Buffalo after WGRZ would have the woman as a regular meteorologist.
In an interview with total buffalo in May 2017, she mentioned that the work environment had been drastically changed during her media career reign. The television presenter insists that technology has a significant impact on every business, especially on television.
She showed a little concern as many jobs have been eliminated because of the interference of technology. She humored by addressing that now people can produce a report and anchors a newscast from their home now. The real breakthrough because of the internet is that there is an instant to deliver particular news in the media.
Maria's Battle Against Pneumonia
WGRZ-TV (Channel 2) anchor Maria had been off for two weeks around April 2020. This gave rise to speculation that she might have left the station. However, that was not the case. Instead, she was battling pneumonia.
By May, she had joined the WGRZ-TV station again
Is Maria Married?
In an interview with TotallyBuffalo in May 2017, Maria stated that she is allergic to dating. Then, in another interview, she said she is more interested in excelling in her profession than having a husband. With this, it was clear that she was in no hurry to have a partner. For her, being independent was her first priority.
And to date, she seems to be standing firm in her statement as no news of her getting married or dating a spouse has come up. So, it won't be wrong to say that she is single at the moment.
