OCMs & Personalities / Re: A note from Nick Walker
« on: January 05, 2015, 07:06:10 PM »
I...don't think that's Nick Walker. :no: He's a TWC employee, but I don't think he's Nick Walker. Maybe just passing along an email?

Bingo... I need to edit the OP.

OCMs & Personalities / A note from Nick Walker
« on: January 05, 2015, 06:13:54 PM »
I figured I would pass this note on from Nick Walker.


Dear Friends,

I wanted take a moment to thank you, and to tell you all what a privilege it has been working with you these past fifteen and a half years. It’s an understatement to say that I am proud and grateful to have worked with so many people who have brought unique talents and unparalleled expertise to create a one-of-a-kind television network. It has been a period of growth for me, both personally and professionally. For the time that many of you took to educate me, challenge me and help me to have the career some broadcast meteorologists only dream of, I am forever grateful.

If you would like to reminisce with me, here are some of my favorite moments from my time here. Many of you have shared some of these memories with me over the years, some fun, some sobering.

From the “Hey, can’t you take a joke?” department:

You may have seen these already, but

here's
 that questionable appearance on Letterman:

I’ll never live down Stephen Colbert’s outrageous green screen substitution:

And as it turns out, my biggest fan is a fictitious character:

From the “I Must Be the Forrest Gump of Weather” department:

I consider it my fortune to have reported many of the big stories. Maybe it was just dumb luck, but I am thankful for the opportunities to have been on the air during the landfalls of Hurricanes Floyd (1999) Charlie and Frances (2004), Katrina, Rita and Wilma (2005), Ike (2008), and Isaac (2012) and during the April 27, 2011 Super Outbreak. Besides those major events, there were many enjoyable memories, including narrating all those “Forecast Earth” specials (the infancy of long form!) and representing TWC at NWA conferences, AMS Weatherfests and educational outreaches around the country.

And, from the “How Can We Miss You if You Won’t Go Away?” department:

I hope to be back with you on a free-lance basis from time to time, so perhaps you haven’t seen the last of me in these hallways. Also, I am still active in the NWA and AMS, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing you at a future meeting.

So thanks again for everyone’s professionalism, expertise, kindness and helpfulness. It is a rare gift in the broadcasting business to be able to say it, but everyone here has my sincere and lasting admiration and respect. I will miss you all.

Lastly, here’s one more fun time some of you will remember:

Here’s wishing you a bright and successful New Year. The best is yet to come!
 
Nick

What's your source? I won't believe it unless it's written somewhere, or if I see it myself. :no:
I agree, especially from someone who just registered.

lol...

You guys are harsh.

How about this for a source, I set her active directory account up and also her email on her iPhone Wednesday. She is indeed back here at TWC.

We chatted for a bit about the Sarychev Peak Volcano from 2009 and the amazing shots of it from the ISS.

Heard it here first. Just watch and we shall see.

...oh Julie Martin is also freelancing with TWC too along with the local TV gig.

bai!  :wave:
