Since Sinclair took over WJLA in Washington, DC many of the most popular people on the station have left or have been pushed out.
But, longtime Weather Anchor Doug Hill remained. Sinclair said the longtime Chief Meteorologist signed a "multi year deal"back in 2015. “I am thrilled to have one of the most respected meteorologists in the country as the leader of our weather operation” says WJLA’s Director of News Mitch Jacob at the time.
Well..... in Sinclair's world it appears that "multi years" is 2, because Hill announced that he's leaving the station later this year.
Back when he signed his deal, Hill said, “ABC7 is my home. I love weather. I love Washington. It just seems like a simple decision to keep doing what I love with the great people we have here at ABC7.”
Many of the "great people" have left the station and Hill is as well. He has been on the air in DC for over 35 years.
He signs off in September.
