Legendary Capital Region meteorologist Bob Kovachick said his goodbyes Monday afternoon after a decades long run at WNYT. Kovachick joined the channel back in 1988 and had been a fixture on Capital Region TV for many years prior. He announced his retirement earlier this year and Monday he was joined by family, co-workers and thousands of viewers as they honored him.
Out in front of the WNYT studios, the Village of Menands has designated the street to be known as ‘Bob Kovachick Way’. As emotional as he was, he was not at a loss for a funny comment:
You spelled my name right too!
Congratulations Bob, you are well loved in the Capital Region and will be greatly missed!
