Chris Ford, assistant news director for the Milwaukee, Wisc., NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV, will soon trade his midwest weather for decidedly sunnier skies.

Ford has been hired as WTSP-TV’s assistant news director, located in the Tampa-St. Petersburg market. It’s also where he grew up, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

It’s a pretty big market jump for Ford, moving from 34th to 14th in a matter of weeks.

He’s also previously worked at stations in Tampa and Orlando and has a history at WTSP.

Ford had worked at WTMJ in Milwaukee for the last five years. Congrats on the new opportunity!
