WMA Weather Anchor Mike Masco says he is leaving the station and TV news in general.
After three years at the station, Masco says his plans, "feature a new adventure that will take me away from full-time TV."
Masco has been with the station since May2012, coming from WGGB, the ABC affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.
He announced his leaving the station on his Facebook page:
I've been dreading this day for a while now, but the time has come to inform you all that I will be leaving ABC 2 News. The last three years spent in Baltimore has been a true honor and privilege. Countless sleepless nights tracking storms with you has made my job an amazing experience that I will never forget. From Superstorm Sandy to tornadoes, floods, blizzards, ice storms (the list is endless) we braved it together! Knowing you and your family were safe from dangerous weather was and always has been my goal but giving you the EARLIEST warning was my mission.
My plans going forward will feature a new adventure that will take me away from full-time TV. You'll see me pop up on ABC 2 from time-to-time to help when I can.
So I'll leave you with this.
If I taught you something about the weather and put a smile on your face to start or end your day, it was all worth it. You were never just a "viewer" to me, but more like my family
