Legendary meteorologist Bob Ryan of WJLA-TV in Washington is retiring.
Ryan has been with the ABC affiliate for three years. Prior to that, he was the head meteorologist at WRC-TV in Washington. He began his 40-year-career in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
WJLA-TV News Director Bill Lord said, “Bob has done a brilliant job for us over the past three years making great contributions to the success of our outstanding 11pm newscast. He has also led the charge on our national award-winning website which derives about a quarter of its page views from the weather pages Bob helped design and populate. We have not yet worked out all the details of Bob’s departure but we will keep everyone in the loop as things develop.”
The station and staff celebrated Ryan’s career on the air on Wednesday.
