Just a week after long time WNYT meteorologist Bob Kovachick announced his retirement, another long time weather forecaster has announced he too will be leaving TV.
News 10 WTEN meteorologist Tim Drawbridge will be leaving the station to become the Communications Director for the city of Glens Falls. Drawbridge will begin his new job on a part-time basis this week and will eventually take it on a full-time basis when his time at WTEN is over. In a statement on the News 10 website, Drawbridge says family played a key role in his decision:
Yes… It’s a new journey. It’s a bittersweet decision because I love what I do and love the people that I’ve worked with day in and day out. The great part about this decision is that I’m going to be able to do a lot of what I’ve done in my career with the City of Glens Falls. And, as many know, my daughter is and has been my World. She’s older now, sports have become VERY important to her, and she is ‘central’ in making this decision. As someone posted on Facebook last week, “Don’t miss the best part of your child’s life. Your best life should be your kid’s life.
Tim Drawbridge has been with News 10 since 2013 and had previously worked at WNYT and Capital News 9 (now Spectrum News). He will continue his current duties through the end of October, a replacement has not yet been named.photo: News 10 WTEN
