It’s been three decades and a number of stints on television… and now meteorologist Andy Avalon’s is ready to retire.
The 66-year-old is leaving WMAQ, the NBS station in Chicago, as the morning meteorologist after what will be his second stint.
Avalon started in the market in 1984 at ABC 7, WLS. Then he was tapped to replace Jim Tilmon in 1994 at NBC 5. He stayed there until 1999 when he decided to leave and run his own pancake house. In 2003 tho, he returned to mornings.
In a note to the staff, he’s most excited to never set his alarm for midnight again.
His last day on the air is August 27.
