Jeff Jamison, the longest standing meteorologist at DFW’s CBS11, confirms that he’ll be exiting the station at the end of this month.

“It’s been a great 16-year journey here and it was a hard decision,” he told unclebarky.com. “I need to cross a few more t’s and dot a few more i’s before I can say what’s next.”

He subsequently crossed and dotted in a public Sept. 29th goodbye note.

Starting Oct. 2nd, “I will be going on staff at The Village Church in Fort Worth,” Jamison said in part. “This is our church home and I couldn’t be more grateful. God has led me to this new vocation and I’m humbled and excited to see how He will continue to move in our city. Would love your prayers for my family and me in this new season.”

As noted in previous posts, WFAA8 meteorologist Colleen Coyle and NBC5 anchor/reporter Kristin Dickerson also have forsaken their respective devil’s workshops(?) this year to go with God.

Jamison, who joined CBS11 in 2003, lately has been doing the weather segments on weekend evenings while also working some weekdays on the 4 p.m. newscast.

He graduated from Fort Worth’s Western Hills High School before earning a degree in meteorology from Texas A&M University, where he graduated Cum Laude according to his station bio. Jamison arrived at CBS11 from KTBS-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana. Before that, he worked at CBS affiliates KBTX-TV and KWTX-TV, which serve the Bryan/College Station and Waco markets.
