Meteorologist Scott Dimmich is leaving WKRC, the Sinclair owned station in Cincinnati.

He will start a new career in business intelligence. Dimmich says he recently completed his MBA.

“In the fall of 2015, I looked at my career options for the future. My choices were to stay where I am and hope to advance, stay in broadcasting and look for advancement opportunities elsewhere – including in other cities — or choose a new career path. Someone at the time suggested I pursue an MBA, so I started classes,” he told WVXU.org.

While he didn’t mentioned who his new employer would be, Dimmich says he is staying in Cincinnati.

WVXU reports this is the third meteorologist to leave the airwaves in six months.

Before landing in Ohio, Dimmich worked at stations in Hazard, Kentucky and Evansville, Indiana.
