Abstract: We describe the centered weighted composition operators on $L^2(\Sigma)$ in terms of their defining symbols. Our characterizations extend Embry-Wardrop-Lambert's theorem on centered composition operators.

Keywords: Aluthge transform; Moore-Penrose inverse; weighted composition operator; conditional expectation; centered operator
