Chief Meteorologist Ken Cook announced his retirement from FOX 5 Monday evening:

Ladies & Gentlemen:

I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you some news.

I am happy to tell you that I will be retiring at the middle of this Summer.

This was not a decision done in haste or taken lightly, but one that my wife, Susie, and I, along with FOX-5, have been working on for more than one-year now.

I have really enjoyed being your Chief Meteorologist here at FOX5, but now it's time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life -- retirement.

I have contemplated retirement for a long time. I think that anyone past 60, or even younger, thinks about it a lot.

Over the years, I've planted a lot of roses -- actually and figuratively -- and now it's time for my wife and me to start to smell the roses.

I will miss the wonderful people with whom I have worked with daily here at FOX5. They are my friends, my confidants, and my family. I will miss telling you, my friends, about the weather. After all, what does a Meteorologist love to do most? -- talk about the weather. I have enjoyed sharing fun times; serious times; and sometimes sad times with you. Now it's time for someone else to do that. I leave you in good hands with Meteorologists, Jeff Hill and Joanne Feldman and the rest of the FOX5 News Team.

I am sure that you will see me pop up on TV from time to time, and I will remain involved with local charities, such as the MDA, Cystic Fibrosis, the American Heart Association, and others.

I want to thank you for the nearly 35 great years that I've had here at FOX5.

Thank you!
