Looks like we're losing another local familiar face on our TV screens. Meteorologist Andy Gregorio is leaving WNYT for a completely different career. Andy has been giving us the weather updates for a long time here in the Capital Region, first on WTEN, and then on WNYT. He is a friendly familiar face on our screen and he always does a great job! I've met Andy several times, and he's just the nicest guy. Andy is leaving WNYT not for another market or another TV network but for another career altogether. Andy went back to school and will soon be working as an IT specialist. I have great respect for anyone who wants to continue learning and doing different things and Andy is doing just that. He will be on the air for about another month, so plenty of time to watch and to say goodbye to him. When he made the announcement on his Facebook page, he wrote, in part "Well some news to share with my friends...after 40 years involved with weather, either broadcasting on radio and TV or consulting work involving weather, I am embarking on a career change. Yep, call me crazy, call me bored call me whatever you want but I will be pursuing a career in IT. (Doing this isn't really that crazy. After all I graduated just about a year ago with an AAS in IT) I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities in my new profession. I have a had a lot of fun in following weather, talking about it and even reporting it so to speak on TV. Let it be known that I never really thought about a career as TV meteorologist. It all started as a bet with a friend and boss at a weather company that I worked for about 30 years ago. I not only won the bet but I also got my first job on a local TV station in Glens Falls and from there, well the rest was history so to speak." You can read his full statement by clicking here. We certainly wish Andy well!!
