Longtime WABC Weather Anchor is Suddenly Gone

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel for TV Spy at AdWeek.com    

It was sudden but longtime WABC weather anchor Bill Evans is gone from the air and some social media platforms.

The New York weather personality at the New York City ABC televsion flagship is no longer on Facebook. His bio has been removed from the station’s website and his title of WABC forecaster has been removed from his Twitter bio.

Evans was off the air for a couple of weeks when viewers started questioning whether or not he would return.

While Evans has not said anything about leaving the station he posted a photo of him at WLNG radio on Tuesday with the caption, “For the moment, I am pursuing a unique opportunity in broadcasting by returning to my roots in radio and operating the historic WLNG radio station in Sag Harbor on Long Island.”

He eluded to a return to television, but wasn’t specific about an opportunity. It is unclear why he left the station after 15 years.

Sure do miss the Dapper Bill in Hackettstown, NJ! Now we have no reason to watch ABC.

In addition to his awesome weather forecasting, Bill had the best suits and ties!

Wishing you good luck in your next adventure Bill.

The Morning Show is so boring without Bill Evans! I have stopped watching as well WABC has dismantled what used to be a great team – first Lori and now Bill Evans. Boycott for Bill!

I miss Bill early morning especially with Maximus and friends my favorite. Use to tape him never wanted to miss him and Maximus. Delightful. Did not like not having a tribute or kind word informing us the viewers of his departure. No longer watch ABC. I agree with comment Robin Roberts being racist. Why is it ok in reverse. ? I also can’t get enough of Sam Champion and his heartwarming laughter. Will switch weekend just to see if Sam is on. I now watch Liri Stokes. . My best to them JUDY

I have been watching Bill Evans for years, I am sorry he is gone like so many other viewers he was the reason we watched the morning news. We will miss you all the best to you and Sandy. I realized who you married when you wished your mother in law Emilia Foschi a quick recovery from her surgery. We are from the same country , my regards to all.

Bill started my day with a smile and good feelings. yes, his forecasts seemed to be the most accurate, but it is the personality that is missed. Love the dogs, and all the hair he probably had on his suits from Maximus!
It is great to have Sam back, but it seems like we have lost a beloved family member.
You are missed and always will be. Good luck with the radio.

They should have gotten rid of Robin Williams and George Snufalogist or whatever his name is. The Snufffy character on Sesame Street is smarter than him.
