TAMPA - Action Weather Meteorologist Bill Logan has been with ABC Action News since March 2004, and says it's great to be back home. In between stints with a "couple of other" local stations here in Tampa Bay, Bill has been a media relations representative with Disney in Orlando, a sportscaster in North Carolina, and was even a Home Shopping host.
"I've moved 'back' to Tampa Bay twice before," he says. "The third time's the charm!"
You can wake up with Bill and Florida's Most Accurate Forecast every Saturday and Sunday -- as he joins Ashley Glass and John Thomas on the popular (and full of surprises) Weekend Edition of ABC Action News This Morning. From Skydiving to Para-sailing and "training" with the Lightning mascot "Thunder Bug" you never know what adventure those weekenders will get into next.
After over a decade with ABC Action News, he's proud to have "held onto this job longer than any other position I've ever had." Of course, the constant variety of Florida weather, and his ability to cover breaking news, traffic and even sports as a reporter have kept him from getting stuck in any sort of rut.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Bill graduated from Towson University (Magna Cum Laude) with a Mass Communications degree, and completed his Broadcast Meteorology Certificate training at Mississippi State University . He and his wife Lesley (who runs a successful Charter School in Tampa) have two grown daughters who also call the Bay area home. In October, 2014, BOTH daughters gave birth to beautiful baby girls... so he's a happy Grand-dad!
