WCTI Meteorologist Skip Waters Dies

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 8.28.06 AMSkip Waters, chief meteorologist at Greenville ABC affiliate WCTI, has died. He was 61.

The veteran broadcaster is believed to have died of natural causes at his home. WCTI general manager Lyle Schulze said
“he called me [Monday] night at 7 o’clock and said he was feeling much better and he was looking forward to coming in to work [Tuesday].”

The news of Waters’ death led the station’s late newscast. WCTI shared tributes from some of the many colleagues Waters worked with over the years:

Skip returned to North Carolina in June 1982 to work at NewsChannel 12. He has tracked numerous hurricanes that impacted Eastern Carolina, including Bertha and Fran in 1996, Dennis and Floyd in 1999, Isabel in 2003, Ophelia in 2005, Irene in 2011, Sandy in 2012, and Arthur this year.

Skip is also known for his involvement in the community. He made hundreds of school visits each year.

“He never seemed to forget a face. He never seemed to forget a name,” said anchor Jaime McCutcheon. “You’d work events with him and anyone who came up to him, he’d remembered exactly where the last time he was that he saw them. And he would even remember something special about each and every person. He learned something about every person. We’d never forget that.”
