After 10 years with a little breakfast show called The Daily Buzz, the time has come for me to move on. I’ve been with the show since day one, and I’ve been forecasting weather on TV for 17 years. It’s time for me to try something new. (Plus I didn’t want to become that creepy old guy in the corner at the party.)
I can’t express enough how much I appreciate the fans who tune in the show. The support I’ve received through the years humbles me, and to know that people accept me for who I am makes me feel like all warm and fuzzy inside. I’ve striven to be “real” on-air, and given the many facets of my personality, it’s a thrill to know you’ve been cool enough to let me in your home every weekday morning.
So if you’re wondering what I’m going to do, here’s the deets: I’m following my passion for tech and gadgetry and will be an “on-air tech expert” on major television stations and TV shows throughout the nation… including The Daily Buzz! So you’ll still see me pop up from time to time, just not doing the weather.
I’m really going to miss my co-workers at The Daily Buzz. With this great opportunity comes a departure from my friends. When you do something every weekday morning, your job turns into your family and it’s going to be hard not seeing them every day. To those who gave me the opportunity to act like a goofball (I’ve always called them “The Suits”), I thank them immensely. To those who stood against me (Mandy Patankin), they know what they did. The Daily Buzz took a chance with me, and it worked. I’m indebted to them. I’m also really happy that I’ll now get to spend more time with my biggest supporters – my wife and kids. (I’m not sure if that’s good for me or bad for them!)
So, there ya have it. I could ramble on and on — some would say like usual — but less is more. I knew there will be a lot of questions, so I hope this post answers them.
By the way, if you hear a rumor in six months that I had to get a job DJ’ing at a club called “Sugar’s”… don’t be so quick to dismiss it. …And so.™
Update: December 2013 – I am now the Executive Producer for Good Morning San Diego at KUSI-TV
Update: January 2017- I am now the co-host of Living Oklahoma at FOX 25 in OKC
Thanks and I’ll See Ya When I Look At Ya,
Rock forth, Mitch
