Changes Coming To The Region 8 Storm TEAM

As some of you may have heard, we have some changes coming to the Region 8 Storm TEAM. Justin Logan is returning to the team. Justin has been with Raycom Media for several years. He started at KAIT in 2008, but has been at our Columbus, GA station for the past couple of years. On social media, Justin posted this: 

"God has blessed me with this great opportunity and I am excited! KAIT is an awesome station with great people that I look forward to working with again" -Justin

It's great to have Justin back at KAIT, but when you add someone, it typically means that you are losing someone. Sarah Tipton will be leaving KAIT in the next 2 weeks. She has a great opportunity that will make for a better time with her family. I'm always proud to see people making very intentional decisions for their family. Here's what she posted on her Facebook page this morning:

"My last 13 days at KAIT have begun. Friday, August 2nd, I wrap up my time here. Justin Logan is returning to the Region 8 StormTEAM and will take over GMR8. He will do well, and I trust him to take over the place I have held the last five years. This moment is bittersweet and fraught with stress and emotion. I’ve spent 7 years in broadcast meteorology, won an award or two, and loved almost every moment of this career. The station and I are parting ways so I can focus on family and a better lifestyle. I am going to work at Sissy’s Log Cabin and am thankful the crew at the Jonesboro store has been so welcoming. This time brings to mind one of the two inscriptions on the Rhodes College Halliburton Tower bell: “Not fare well, but fare forward, voyagers.”- Sarah

I'm excited for both of them as they transition to new parts of their life. I've known both of them since they started in this business and I'm very proud of them. 

So, starting next month, the Region 8 Storm TEAM will be Bryan, Justin, and I. I can't say enough great things about these two guys. They are coworkers, but I also consider them great friends. I've been blessed to work with some great people at KAIT and that is not changing. It makes me happy.

Have a great day,
