Sam Champion is returning to where is all began more than three decades ago, to Disney flagship WABC in New York.

He’ll work on the morning and noon editions of “Eyewitness News” where he first worked beginning in 1988.

“It is an extraordinary opportunity to come home and, once again, be a part of the Eyewitness News family,” Champion said. “I have felt the trust and kindness of New York and the tri-state viewers since 1988, and I can’t wait to start our days together again at the No. 1 station in the nation.”

After his less-than-successful stint at The Weather Channel, Champion has been contributing to his network alma mater at “Good Morning America” as a fill-in forecaster on the weekends.

Champion began his career as an intern at WKYT, Lexington, Kentucky.
