A former weatherman for KTBC Channel 7 has died of an apparent heart attack.
Connor Vernon served as KTBC’s chief meteorologist from 1989 to 1995, when the station was still a CBS affiliate.
He died Saturday, according to media reports. Vernon was 63.
After leaving KTBC, Vernon served as morning host at now-defunct Austin radio station Oldies 103. But he still popped up on occasion on KTBC, doing fill-in work.
Vernon’s replacement at KTBC, Troy Kimmel, described him as “a good friend and colleague.”
Most recently, Vernon served as a meteorologist for WTVY and WDHN, both in Dothan, Ala.
