TV in Albany will never be the same. Long time NewsChannel 13 Meteorologist Bob Kovachick has announced his retirement. Kovachick made the emotional announcement live on the air Friday with his co-workers Subrina Dhammi, Mark Mulholland and Paul Caiano by his side.

Bob has been a staple on Capital Region TV for over forty years, the last thirty have been spent at NewsChannel 13.

It’s just time to pull the plug and retire and enjoy the other aspects of my life

His last day will be October 3rd, although he plans to stay on and help with special projects at the station.

Many thanks to Bob from the generations of us who grew up watching him in the Capital Region, we wish you the very best!!
