Meteorologist Brian MacMillan is leaving Portland, Ore. Fox affiliate KPTV to work in Seattle.

MacMillan announced the news on LinkedIn, saying he’s leaving the station after 12 years to work as the weekday morning meteorologist at KCPQ in Seattle. His last day at KPTV will be Friday, Sept. 30.

“These types of changes are always bittersweet, however this is an incredible opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” said MacMillan. “This move brings my wife and I back to our home town and gives us a chance to be closer to our families.”


MacMillan began his local TV career at KOHD in Bend, Ore. He started working at KPTV in 2009.
