Feb. 19, 2013. With excitement building as they near a huge expansion of their coverage area, RaysWeather.com has hired a full-time Meteorologist/Sales Executive to help meet the continued demand for up to date and accurate weather forecasting.
David Still has joined the RaysWeather.com team on a full-time basis, leaving the TV spotlight as the morning meteorologist at ABC24 in Memphis, Tenn. for the last three years. Previously, Still worked for the ABC affiliate in Sioux City, Iowa on the northern fringe of Tornado Alley. David is no stranger to North Carolina or its wild mountain weather. Raised in Charlotte, he graduated from Appalachian State University in 2001 with an Electronic Media/Broadcasting degree in Communication. Upon graduation Still worked for Infinity Broadcasting in Charlotte as an Account Executive and then as a Regional Sales Manager for a manufacturer’s rep firm based in Nashville. A life-long calling to become a meteorologist was fulfilled a few years later when Still completed his Certificate of Major in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of North Carolina at Asheville.
Still will be an ambassador for RaysWeather.com as their forecasting region expands throughout parts of the Appalachian Mountains. From school classroom visits, to assisting customers with their advertising needs, to contributing to the most accurate weather forecast in Western North Carolina, Still will be a huge benefit to the local community.
Ray Russell, President of RaysWeather.com says, “We are blessed to have David join our growing business. Adding a full-time meteorologist living here in the High Country is a big step for RaysWeather.Com. David will be a great asset to us not only in forecasting but also because of his experience in sales. We are in the midst of a major expansion and overhaul of our websites. This will prove to be a break-out year for the company.”
RaysWeather.com began in 1999 with Ray, one backyard weather station, and a wintertime snow forecast. From that small start, RaysWeather.com now boasts a total of 5 office staff and 5 forecasters and meteorologists covering the mountain region from Waynesville to Sparta, including Asheville, Burnsville, Banner Elk, Boone, Jefferson, and the foothills from Mt. Airy to Morganton.
