GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — ABC News chief meteorologist and Storm Team 8 alum Ginger Zee and her husband are getting their own TV show.

Zee and her husband Ben Aaron will be featured on “Renovation Realities: Ben and Ginger” on the DIY Network.

The series will follow the couple as they renovate their house outside of New York City with help from their contractors.

“Renovation Realities: Ben and Ginger” premieres on Saturday, May 6 at 8 p.m. on DIY Network.

Zee, a Rockford, Mich. native, began her career at WGRD-FM in Grand Rapids. She went on to hold on-air positions as a meteorologist for WEYI-TV in Flint, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, and WMAQ-TV in Chicago.

In 2011, Zee left Chicago for “Good Morning America Weekend in New York.” Then, in December 2013, she was named chief meteorologist for the network, following Sam Champion’s departure.

Zee has been married to Aaron since June 2014. They welcomed their son, Adrian Benjamin, in December 2015.
