Hey Middle Georgia - I'm back! Some of you might remember me from my first stint at FOX 24 as Chief Meteorologist from April of 2005 to August of 2007. So, why am I back? That's the question I am getting from a lot of people.
To answer that, I guess I need to tell you what I have done post-FOX 24. I left Macon in August of 2007 for The Weather Channel in Atlanta. I was a radio broadcast meteorologist and was responsible for at least 20 radio stations nationwide at any given time. I was broadcasting in both small and large cities. I was recognized by family and friends across the country. But...I missed TV. Following The Weather Channel, I moved back to my hometown of Asheville, NC and worked as a meteorologist for Ray's Weather Center, a forecasting service for western North Carolina. I loved being back in Asheville and loved the group of meteorologists I worked with. But...I missed TV. See the trend?
I missed TV like crazy following my departure from FOX 24 back in 2007. When I got the phone call to discuss coming back to Macon, I was excited and decided to run with it.
So, here I am middle Georgia. I'm back and ready to deliver you the best forecast in the viewing area, but at the same time, try to pass along some of my knowledge and passion for weather at the same time. There is a lot of blood, sweat and tears poured into the three minutes you see me each night.
I encourage you to contact us via e-mail at 'email@example.com' if you have any questions about something you have seen on-air. Also, if you have any storm reports and interesting weather to report, send it in. And most important, if you have any pictures or video of cool weather in middle Georgia, I want to see it!
Thanks for watching and thanks for welcoming back with open arms! See you at 10PM!
