CBS 2 chief meteorologist Steve Baskerville announced on Tuesday that he will retire toward the end of the year, culminating 30 years at the station.
“I am finally putting the weather remote down and I’m stepping away from the map,” Baskerville said in an email to the station staff. “This has been an incredible streak of years staying employed. I am very fortunate.
“It is a natural time for me to step away and be more available for my family and loved ones. That’s code for how much I miss my grandkids.”
Baskerville’s last day was Dec. 22.
