Meteorologist Cheryl Scott Busy With Professional Husband, Who is Her Boyfriend in Real Life?
Meteorologist, Cheryl Scott has always been committed to her professional career, and this had earlier overshadowed her personal life. However, there comes a time in everyone's life when they must settle down.
It seems like the time might have come for Cheryl as she recently got engaged to her longtime boyfriend. Cheryl, who turns the heat up with her hot chemistry with her co-worker, has finally found a suitable companion.
Professional Commitment; Shares Chemistry With Onscreen Husband
Cheryl Scott is working on ABC 7's top-rated 10 PM newscast since 1 August 2016. She is seen conveying viewers about the weather in Chicago during the station's 4 PM and 5 PM newscasts.
While appointing Cheryl in his position in the top-rated news team, the chief meteorologist of ABC 7, Jerry Taft said in the news release,
"After all the late nights doing weather for more than 20 years, I'm really looking forward to handing off the late shift to someone who is as passionate about weather as Cheryl Scott."
Well, these words from Jerry highlighted Cheryl skills as a weathercaster. Cheryl also mentioned in the news release that she was honored to continue working with Jerry and the rest of the weather team on the 10 PM newscast.
Cheryl shares a glowing chemistry with Jerry; however, the co-workers have never been linked romantically. Further, as Cheryl has always been around rumors of her personal life, not being gossiped about her colleague is probably a blessing for her.
Rumored Dating Life; Mystery Boyfriend
Cheryl's personal life had always been surrounded by rumors as the paparazzi could not get any confirmation about her dating status.
She was previously linked to Josh Iachelli, the owner of Homeslice Pizza, Lincoln Park and co-owner of The Happy Camper. The speculation had initially started when Josh posted a series of Instagram photos featuring Cheryl. However, the pair never came out exclusively as a couple.
Later, Cheryl shared a picture of a road trip with a mystery man on 4 July 2015, which raised the suspicion that she was dating another man.

However, like the previous gossip, this rumor also turned out to be false when Cheryl revealed her real boyfriend.
