It's time to say congrats' and goodbye to one of our Storm TEAM members at K8. Ron Smiley accepted a job at WDSU in New Orleans. Ron will be missed here in Region 8, but he has an awesome opportunity in the Bayou that can't be passed up. He has a big task ahead of him! He has to keep people's mind at ease during a potentially active hurricane season in the wake of Katrina. I have had my fair share of hurricane coverage down at WSFA, but Ron has a MUCH larger responsibility in the Big Easy. I'm sure he will make us proud down there. Who knows... we may even get him to do some live reporting for us if a hurricane threatens! Feel free to say your farewell in the "comments" section below. You don't have to have an account to post a comment. You just have to fill out the form. Ron's last night is tonight on Nightbeat. I'll talk more about the lady that will replace Ron in the coming week!
All the best to you, Ron!
