Ever wonder whatever happened to former KYW-TV weatherguy David Rogers? David left Philadelphia in the early 90's after six and a half years as Chief Meteoroligist at KYW. He went on to Cleveland's WKYC-TV after his contract here was not renewed and later grabbed a better offer from New York's WCBS-TV where he was the main weeknight weatherguy there in the mid 90's.

In March 2004, you may recall, Rogers pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated vehicular assault after he acknowledged he hit two construction workers on a Cleveland OH interstate in the wee hours of the summer of 2003 after losing control of his SUV. Both workers were injured, one critically. Rogers fled the scene--leaving both men laying on the ground. He refused a breathalyzer but admitted driving drunk according to Rogers was working at WCBS at the time of the incident and was pulled off the air as a result.

Rogers is now at Charlottesville Virginia station, WVIR-TV (NBC 29) where he serves as morning weekend meterologist, a BIG DROP from market #1 to market #178. He is a Philadelphia native, is married and has one son and one daughter.
