Listen up Alabama readers... It's been posted on a few blogs and message boards, so I guess I should post something here, too. Rob Hatchell (the meteorologist that took my place at WSFA) has been promoted! Rob will be transferring to WMBF in Myrtle Beach, SC in June to be their Chief Meteorologist.
This news can also be connected to us at KAIT. Rob will be working for our former General Manager, Ted Fortenberry ("Consider This" guy). Ted and I spoke a few times about Rob. I told him that Rob would be a good fit and apparently he agreed.
The hunt is now on for a new meteorologist for "Today In Alabama" at WSFA. I'm sure that Raycom Media will find a great match for the show! I have a few folks that I think would be good fit. I'll keep you posted!
For you WSFA viewers (about 50% of my readers...), shoot Rob an email to congratulate him... firstname.lastname@example.org
