After more than 17 years in Santa Barbara, including 14 years as weathercaster at the ABC affiliate, KEYT-TV, Alan Rose is swapping TV Hill for the ski slopes of the Rockies, I can exclusively reveal.

Alan is joining the weather team at KOAA-TV, a Scripps-owned NBC affiliate in Colorado Springs.

“The move is all too bittersweet for me,” says Alan. “Santa Barbara has welcomed me into the community as a member of the KEYT team for more than a decade.

“I’m proud of the work we’ve done here as a team, as well as working with various schools and non-profits in town, including the Pacific Pride, Arthritis and Dream foundations, Flower Empower and many others.

“I’ve truly enjoyed the opportunity to share with viewers my passion for weather. Moving to the Centennial State is a dream come true.

“It’s an opportunity to forecast some of the most complex and exciting weather patterns in the country. Plus I’m an avid skier and can’t wait to explore the mountains.”

Anchors C.J. Ward and Beth Farnsworth hosted a farewell party at their home at the weekend as a host of on-screen talent bid him adieu.

“Alan has been the heartbeat of our weather team as we have invested in newer and better technology at a rapid pace, all in an effort to forecast critical and sometimes lifesaving weather information to our viewers,” says Mark Danielson, KEYT general manager,

“Alan is a great leader for the First Alert Weather team, a great leader in our newsrooms and a leader in our community. He will be missed.”
