Not only is this a wonderful career opportunity for him, it moves him closer to his family and his roots in the Northeast. Lonnie has been a key contributor to the success of "Today In South Florida" and "South Florida Today." His charming personality, positive energy and willingness to participate in community events will truly be missed.

Although we all know they "broke the mold" with Lonnie, we are very excited about the opportunity to add another talented individual to our morning team. Ryan Phillips has agreed to be our morning meteorologist going forward. Please join us in congratulating Ryan on this significant promotion.

Lonnie asked that we share these thoughts with you:

"I can't say enough about how much I have enjoyed working at WTVJ. In a world where newscasts look exactly the same from city to city... WTVJ allowed me to do things in a different way. I am grateful for how that has benefited me and, hopefully, WTVJ as well. There is an amazing opportunity for me that will allow me to grow professionally and be closer to some of my family. I will give it my best shot, try to learn something new along the way and, who knows...maybe make my way back home to South Florida in the future."

The last day for Lonnie and the first day for Ryan is Thursday, Jan. 11.

-Yvette Miley, Vice President and News Director of NBC 6
