WSB GM Says He Wants Departing Meteorologist to Stay

wsb304WSB GM Tim McVay wrote a note to viewers on the station’s facebook page yesterday saying he wants departing meteorologist David Chandley to stay but is prepared if he doesn’t.

Yesterday TVSpy reported Chandley was leaving WSB because he always wanted to be a chief meteorologist. Currently, he is one of five meteorologists on staff at WSB. Current chief Glenn Burns has been at the station since 1981.

“Although I still hope that David will change his mind and stay with Channel 2, we congratulate him on the great work he’s done while a member of Severe Weather Team 2,” wrote McVay.

But McVay added the station has a plan if Chandley leaves, “If he doesn’t return we will begin looking for the person to join Chief Meteorologist Glenn BurnsKaren MintonBrad Nitz and our newest Severe Weather Team 2 member, Katie Walls.”

Here’s the entire note:
