After 42 years of reporting on the weather, veteran CTV News forecaster Dave Macdonald is retiring.

MacDonald made the announcement on air Friday. His last day is June 30.
That day will be marked by a special on-air farewell segment.

In a CTV story on MacDonald’s departure, Dennis Watson, general
manager and vice-president of CTV Southwestern Ontario, says “Dave is
arguably the most recognized person in this area … There is no doubt he
will be missed, but we are happy for him and wish him all the best.”

MacDonald’s replacement will be announced today. He is leaving CTV to enter politics.
