  1. Will miss Walter. I remember meeting him once at a Capitol Hill restaurant and he’s as genuine and real in person as he is on the broadcast. Best wishes to him in his next journey.

  2. Walter Kelly our favorite Weather Man. So sorry to see him leave. We travel to Arizona each Winter and wondering if he will be working at a station in the Phoenix Area?
