Responding to her resignation post on Twitter from 28 March, one person replied weeks later with a sentiment shared by many. The Twitter user said: “I just realized you are no longer at CBS LA any more I just thought you were on vacation.”


But Danielle did announce on her social media profiles on Sunday, 28 March that the Friday before had been her last day.

She wrote: “They say when one door closes another door opens and I’ve always been a big believer you can’t start a new chapter without closing an old one. With that said, Friday was my last day at @cbsla.”

The meteorologist went on to thank the viewers and all those she worked with.

So, where is Danielle Gersh now? Since that post she has been seen skiing and spending time on her ranch, possibly resting before her next big move.
