Bob Ryan Announces Retirement From WJLA

After more than three decades as a meteorologist in Washington, D.C., Bob Ryan will retire from ABC affiliate WJLA next month, The Washington Post reports.

Ryan was chief meteorologist at NBC-owned WRC from 1980-2010. He joined Allbritton’s WJLA, where he is the 11 p.m. meteorologist, in 2010.

In an interview with the Post, Ryan said he is planning to continue writing and blogging about the weather, possibly even filling in on WJLA from time to time. He said Allbritton’s recent announcement that it is exploring a sale of its television stations contributed to his decision.

“I made the decision [to retire] before the new owner gets here,” Ryan said.
