Former WILX-TV Chief Meteorologist, Darrin Rockcole, who retired from the station in June of 2020, is returning on a freelance basis. Rockcole will be working as Weekend Meteorologist on News 10 Today Weekend Edition 6 a.m. – 8 a.m., News 10 at 6 p.m., and News 10 at 11 p.m. “We appreciate Darrin helping cover weekends this summer, and fill in for vacations,” said WILX General Manager Debbie Petersmark, “There’s nobody better we could have asked for!”
Rockcole, who says he misses forecasting the weather for a TV audience, is happy to help. “I’m looking forward to being able to fill in where needed and deliver Mid-Michigan the weather forecast again” said Rockcole.
“Our viewers know Darrin, and they have missed him,” said WILX News Director Mike Schram, “He’s one of the area’s most trusted and accurate meteorologists and we’re excited to have Darrin rejoin the News 10 team.”
The News 10′s Weather Authority team currently consists of longtime trusted evening meteorologist Andy Provenzano, along with meteorologist Justin Bradford bringing you the weather every weekday morning.
Rockcole returned to the station to fill-in on the station’s early morning news June 10-11. His new regular weekend duties begin this weekend.
