Reflecting on Jim Buchanan's tenure at Fox 43

It was the summer of 1995 when I walked to my mailbox at WROZ-FM 101.3 "The Rose," where I was a part-time on-air personality, and found a memo from Jim Buchanan.
Buchanan, the morning on-air personality and program director for WROZ and WLPA-AM 1490, wrote a note to the staff at the stations letting them know it was his dream to be a weatherman for a TV station, and WPMT-TV Fox 43 was giving him that opportunity.
Since that time, I've often thought of that memo when I turn on the 10 p.m. news on Fox 43.
There was Buchanan, my former boss, delivering very accurate weather information. In fact, my brother believed Buchanan's weather reports were the most accurate of any local meteorologist.
I learned Tuesday that Buchanan is no longer at Fox 43, where he worked from 1995 until Sept. 26 of this year.
Buchanan had also been the main weather anchor at WHP-TV CBS21 (1985-1991) and a weekend weathercaster at WHTM-TV ABC27 (1983-1985). He also had 15 years of on-air radio and programming experience in Philadelphia and Cleveland.
In this market, he worked for such stations as WKBO-AM, WQXA-FM 105.7 "Q106" and WROZ.
