Waters has worked with his fellow sports anchors Fred Kalil and Sam Crenshaw for 17 years. “I don’t think we’ve said three mean words to each other the entire time,” Waters told Access Atlanta. “I have an unbelievable amount of respect for them.”

Waters, who commutes 100 miles to work every day, has accepted a job in banking services closer to home. He has not yet decided when he will officially sign off, but his contract is up December 31.
