Bart Adrian leaving Channel 6

Weathercaster Bart Adrian will be leaving Channel 6 at the end of August in what news director Jim Lemon described as a "mutual decision."

Adrian joined Channel 6 on June 22, 1982 -- just four months after lead forecaster Vince Condella started there.

While no specifics were given for the departure -- Adrian's not saying anything right now -- Lemon was full of praise for the veteran.

"For us, it's been the benefit of having a really solid team," Lemon said. He also praised Adrian for his community work, including a tradition of bringing Cub Scout groups into the station on weekends to tour the operation.

"There are generations of young people who came through and got a taste of a TV station because they were part of a cub scout group who came through on a tour group led by Bart Adrian," Lemon said.

Adrian's position will be filled, but Lemon said, "we will never find anybody to replace him."
