Fox News' studio set in New York.

The ad-supported offering will take advantage of 75 meteorologists already reporting at Fox TV stations and the Fox News Channel.

Fox News wants to talk more about the weather.

On Wednesday, the Fox News Media division unveiled plans for an advertising-supported streaming weather service, Fox Weather, to debut in the third quarter of 2021 and complement the traditional news operation.

Sharri Berg, currently the COO of news and operations for Fox Television Stations, will become president of the online weather channel, reporting to Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News Media.  Berg will also step down as the executive vp of news operations for Fox News Channel.

"As Fox News Media continues to deliver the best in news content, it was only natural to expand our footprint to weather with the launch of our eighth platform, Fox Weather, and there is no one better to lead this new venture than Sharri Berg," Stone said in a statement.

The streaming weather service will have a dedicated Fox Weather app, and an integrated website and streaming service featuring local, regional and national updates as well as live programming.

Fox Weather will also take advantage of 75 meteorologists across 17 Fox stations and Fox News Channel's news gathering units.
