From the Springs to Seattle

KRDO (Colorado Springs) Weather Anchor Abby Acone is signing off from the station after the November book and is headed to Seattle.

Acone has taken a position at Sinclair’s KOMO in Seattle.

She will be the station’s weekend evening meteorologist and weekday weather/climate reporter.

"I've loved living and working in Colorado Springs," said Acone. "The people of KRDO have become like family, so it'll be bittersweet leaving come November. Despite the immense challenge of forecasting in this market, I've considered it a privilege and joy keeping southern Coloradans ahead of the storms. I'm so grateful to the viewers for all the support over the years, and hope they can still follow my adventures on social media. I'd love to stay connected to the people of the Pikes Peak region. While I'll be sad leaving, I'm so thrilled at the chance to be back home in Seattle with beloved family and friends."

Acone joined KRDO in August of 2014.
