Doug Hill, “a giant in TV weather broadcasting in the Washington region,” has died, reports The Washington Post.  Hill was 71.

For 33 years, continued The Post, “Hill entered the living rooms of Washingtonians, navigating them through sunny days and violent storms, earning their trust and becoming like family.”

Hill came to Washington in 1984, worked with CBS affiliate WUSA for 16 years, and then joined ABC7 and remained there until he retired.

“I met Doug Hill nearly 25 years ago while in college and was in awe that he was the same guy in person that I saw on TV,” wrote Brian van de Graff, an ABC7 meteorologist who worked with Hill, in a message to The Post. “Little did I know that would be the beginning of a mentorship that would help propel me to where I am today. I am forever grateful for his guidance and friendship and thankful for all of those years that I got to work alongside him.”
