WTNH meteorologist Steve Villanueva participated in Sunday’s 9/11 ceremonies  at Ground Zero in memory of his brother, Sergio Villanueva, a New York City firefighter who was in the south tower when it collapsed.

“My brother, Sergio Gabriel Villanueva,” the meteorologist said during the reading of victims’ names. “Our lives are so much emptier without you, we miss you so much.”

Villanueva has been with WTNH, the ABC affiliate in Hartford-New Haven, since last December. He worked in New York City as a weekend meteorologist for WNYW from 2002 to 2006 before joining WRC in Washington, DC.
