GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Join us in welcoming WITN’s new chief meteorologist, Star Derry!

Star is a Tinley Park, Illinois native who began her news career in 2014 at WIFR in Rockford where she worked as the weekend evening meteorologist. She then moved to Madison, Wisconsin where she worked as the morning show meteorologist. Most recently, Star worked at WTTV in Indianapolis, Indiana where she spent her last three years with the morning crew.

She specializes in severe weather and climatology, the study of long term weather patterns and what is normal in specific areas.

The Southern Illinois University at Carbondale alumna moved to Greenville in April with her horse, Kentucky “Tucker” Rain, and her two cats, Smokey and Alice. In her free time, Star enjoys spending time outdoors with her horse, hiking and much more.

She says she is excited to live in Eastern Carolina, as this is the closest she has ever lived to the beach.
