So it's both a sad and happy day here in the newsroom and forecast center at WLIO. Darren Maier, chief meteorologist, is leaving us for greener pastures in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Hopefully he embraces the opportunity to be a Badger fan now.
I'm sad to see Darren go because he's got such a unique and dry sense of humor. he's a great presence each night behind the scenes. But I'm happy for both selfish and unselfish reasons... One, it's an opportunity for him to spread his idea to a larger market, a step up in the world of TV weather. Plus, this means changes within our department here...
Kyle Adams will be the new chief, taking the reigns weekday evenings. I will be headed to the morning show once a weekend replacement starts. I don't want to spill the beans there yet! Hopefully within a couple weeks, we will all be settled into our new slots.
So congratulations to both Darren and Kyle... here we start a new chapter!
