Washington Weathercaster Revolving Door Continues to Spin

The churn in the local broadcasting market fed by falling revenues has brought another new face to Washington weathercasting. Following the recent departure of veteran meteorologist Bob Ryan, the 11 pm report on WRC-TV, Channel 4, last night was delivered by Justin Drabick. Drabick's presentation showed a familiarity with local geography undoubtedly acquired during an early career spent on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

After graduation in 2004 from Millersville University, he spent 5 years at WMDT, Channel 47, the ABC affiliate in Salisbury. In December, he moved to WBOC, the Salisbury CBS/Fox affiliate broadcasting on channels 16 and 21. Drabick holds a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society.
