New Year, New Gig

For 21 years, Joe Rao has been doing the Weather for News12 Westchester. But, the News 12 stations are being paired down and some think they could all be shuttered in the not to distant future. 

 Rao was offered to keep his gig at News 12, but would have to commute to the Long Island studio as the company was shutting down the studio in Westchester. 

His commute each day was going to stretch out to 150 miles. 

Rao told News 12 he would stay, but he was dreading the long commute and knew that he would like have to move his family. 

But then came the call. 

Here is what Rao posted to his Facebook page.
