By Kevin Eck 

WOFL chief meteorologist Jayme King has retired from TV news. Friday was his last day on Good Day Orlando.

King announced the news in a social post, saying it was his decision. He then announced his replacement on the morning show.

“Please welcome FOX 35 Storm Team Meteorologist Brooks Garner to Good Day Orlando. You couldn’t be in better hands. Brooks has more than two decades of hurricane and forecasting experience, and he also happens to be a terrific person,” said King.


According to his LinkedIn page, King started his career behind the scenes in Jacksonville, Florida, and moved to morning meteorologist in Rockford, Illinois. After three years in Savannah, Georgia, he got hired at Fox-owned Phoenix station KSAZ. He joined Fox-owned WOFL in 2012.

“My wife and our whole family couldn’t be more excited for this new adventure we are setting sail on!” he said. “Hope to see you around town, and keep watching FOX 35, the best team on the planet.”
