My last day at News 12 was August 17.
I've truly enjoyed my time here at WRDW and have grown in my career by leaps and bounds during my tenure. But I was offered an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up. KOHD in Bend, OR offered me a Chief Meteorologist position. I had planned on staying in Augusta for a while, but the thought of being chief at a brand new station that will begin news in September kept nagging my brain. It saddens me to think about leaving WRDW, but my wife and I are set to have an adventure in Oregon. I've never lived outside the southeast and I will enjoy the challenge of forecasting in a totally different environment.
I would like to thank the community in general for their support during StormFEST and our training sessions. I'd also like to thank the National Weather Service and both Georgia and South Carolina state Climatologists for their support during our events. I hope you continue to come to Augusta to educate the community on severe weather and climatology, because a population that knows whats going on with severe weather is a safer community. I also hope that more schools will continue their interest in having a meteorologist come to visit and boost and support the classroom science curriculum.
To the Storm Team 12 Storm Spotters: thanks for all of your calls during severe weather, and keep them coming! I hope you continue your education in meteorology.
I've really enjoyed my time here in Augusta and I wish all of our viewers nothing but the best.
