“It was important to us to find an experienced meteorologist who understands the kind of weather we get here in the Cape Fear,” WWAY news director Kevin Wuzzardo said in a statement. “When we got Scott’s application, we knew instantly he was who we were looking for. We are very excited that even while losing a veteran member of our team in Jerry, we immediately gain in Scott the most experienced meteorologist in the Wilmington market.”
Dean will appear on the 5, 5:30, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts on WWAY and the 10 p.m. newscast on the Wilmington CW affiliate, which is a subchannel of WWAY.
Jackson is the chief meteorologist at WWAY in Wilmington, NC. He has worked at the station for 16 years.
StarNews online reports his last day at WWAY will be next Friday.
Jackson said he and his wife, who has accepted her own position as a biology instructor at a nearby university, have been talking about moving closer to where they grew up for a while. But the decision to leave WWAY is not something he took lightly.
“I have been established here for a long time, and the viewers and the station have been very supportive of me,” Jackson said. “So it was a difficult decision to make, but the timing was right and the opportunity was a good fit for us.”
