Champion304There’s no going back now. Sam Champion has turned in his ABC News Severe Weather slicker and today was presented his new multi-layer, category 5, snowpocalypse Weather Channel jacket.

Last week Champion left ABC, his work home for 25 years, for the Weather Channel where he takes on the role of managing editor and host of a new morning show that will launch in late winter.

Weather Company CEO David Kenny and Weather Channel president David Clark (above, with Champion) introduced the newest member of their team at the company’s Atlanta headquarters this afternoon.
