Tim Buckley leaving us for new job in Greensboro

Friday, December 20th, 2013

While I know it’s just part of life working in a smaller TV market, I still hate saying goodbye.

“Good Morning Carolina” Meteorologist Tim Buckley has let us know he’s accepted a new job at WFMY-TV in Greensboro. He’ll be the weekend meteorologist at the CBS affiliate. It’s an 85-market jump for Mr. Buckley, putting him in a Top 50 news market.

I have to be honest, Tim is one of the best people I’ve ever met in this industry. He never complains, he always finishes projects on time and he always, ALWAYS has a smile on his face and makes us laugh.

For example, a few months before I got here in 2010, Tim was hired to be the weekend meteorologist. Then, just a couple of weeks later, the station decided to cancel weekend news due to the recession. Tim was moved to being a reporter five days a week. The Penn State grad went to school to study weather, NOT be a journalist. He’s a scientist, not a liberal arts type-of-person like most of us in the newsroom. But he hung in there, did a great job at story-telling, and was eventually promoted to Morning Meteorologist.

Many of our viewers consistently ask why people come and go all the time here at the station. Tim is the perfect example why. This was his first job out of school. He’s cut his teeth and become an exceptional on-air meteorologist, and now is moving on to a bigger station where he, honestly, can make a whole lot more money than he can here in Wilmington.

Tim, we wish you the best! You, Ashley Jacobs and Randy Aldridge have a wonderful natural chemistry on GMC that will be difficult to replace. You will be missed, but we also know you will be a tremendous success in the Triad. Enjoy!
