Josh Nichols departs WROC-TV in Rochester

The same day that 13WHAM-TV Chief Meteorologist Glenn Johnson said goodbye to viewers on his final day at the station– another Rochester-area meteorologist announced that he was parting ways with the station that’s employed him for the last several years.

Josh Nichols, a meteorologist with WROC-TV, announced on Twitter and Facebook that he was exiting the station. Nichols previously worked at WHEC-TV during the Kevin Williams era.

“It seems like just yesterday I walked into the studios here at 201 Humboldt St.,” he said in the statement posted to his social media platforms. “Five years really flew by … I’ve worked with some truly talented professionals both in front of the camera and behind it. All have been dedicated to putting together a great product day-in, and day-out, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. I’m proud to be able to say I worked with some of the best in the business.”

He said the reason for his exit was “a bit complicated,” but noted that “the bottom line is that this is a business decision that’s been made, that I’ve known about for some time now.”

Nichols’ announcement took a similar tone to Johnson’s which linked realities of the changing media landscape and the surprise exits.
