The Eagle Takes Flight From TV Weather Role

RTE has confirmed that popular weather presenter John Eagleton has decided to move away from television weather forecasts after more than 10 years on the air.  

It is understood that Mr. Eagleton, affectionately referred to as ‘The Eagle’ by weather enthusiasts, wanted to concentrate more on his meteorological work at Met Eireann.

An RTE spokesperson said: “He was a terrific member of the meteorological team here in RTÉ and is missed by all his RTÉ colleagues, though he continues to provide forecasts to the presenting team from Glasnevin when required.”

“He particularly requested his departure from RTÉ to be low-key and did not wish to make any statements or have any publicity surrounding no longer presenting on television. RTÉ and Met Eireann complied with these wishes”, added the spokesperson.

Everyone at iWeather Online wishes John well in the future.
