Long-serving Iowa meteorologist calls it quits

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A veteran meteorologist is calling it quits after 32 years of delivering weather forecasts to eastern Iowans.

KWWL-TV in Waterloo (http://bit.ly/1l1JTwm) reports that Jeff Kennedy delivered his final forecast Tuesday after announcing in November that he would leave the station.

KWWL news director Dan Schillinger says Kennedy was the longest-serving meteorologist in eastern Iowa and will be greatly missed. He says Kennedy had “a real rapport with viewers” and was known for an easygoing, friendly, and calm delivery.

Jim McKernan, the station’s general manager, praised Kennedy for taking part in numerous community events and classroom visits.

Kennedy had worked at KWWL since 1981. He says he’s grateful for “an amazing career” with great colleagues.
