Meteorologist Dave Cocchiarella, a familiar face in many Orlando households for more than a decade, left Central Florida News 13 last week, according to Florida News Center.

The cable-only station, owned by Bright House Networks, released this short statement:

“Dave Cocchiarella chose to no longer be with News 13. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
