I am writing to let you know I’ve made an important, exciting decision as it relates to my career.
January 16, I will begin at Hearst’s WPTZ/WNNE in the Burlington, Vermont and Plattsburgh, New York television market.
At NBC5, I will be a full-time on-air meteorologist, where I will also be tasked with designing new graphics while maintaining a consistent presence on social media.
Hearst’s solid reputation as a television company is one that is important to me. Additionally, Chief Meteorologist Tom Messner has been at the station since 1990 and he is a great mentor to many in the business.
I am thankful to NBC Connecticut for the opportunity to work in my home state over the past couple years. Family, friends and former teachers got to see me on television in Connecticut, a dream that one can only hope will come true some day.
I enjoyed being able to go beyond the traditional role of a broadcast meteorologist while at WVIT, something that I hope will continue for the rest of my career. When we launched a new graphics package, I earned the distinction of “Employee of the Quarter” and an NBCUniversal GEM award.
As many of you know, I got my start in broadcasting at WGGB in western Massachusetts. Now, after having worked in Connecticut for nearly two years, I will cover northern New England and northern New York. It’s going to be pretty cool to be able to say I’ve covered all of western New England and worked for NBC, ABC, FOX and CBS.
Finally, I am grateful to have worked alongside the great meteorologists at NBC Connecticut. Chief Meteorologist Brad Field brought me on as an intern a few years ago before I eventually became an employee. All the best to Brad Field, Bob Maxon, Ryan Hanrahan, Darren Sweeney and Kaitlyn McGrath.
