Fox 21 chief meteorologist Justin Chambers announced today that he is leaving the station. Chambers, known for his sense of humor and outgoing personality, has taken a position with a station in Nashville. 

“Colorado is the most beautiful state we have ever lived in,” said Chambers. “This community in southern Colorado has been so warm and welcoming to my family and me, it makes it hard to leave. My Fox 21 family is just that, family. The people I have had the privilege to work with over the past five and half years are some of the best in the business.”

Chambers' tenure at Fox 21 began April 3, 2012. In May of 2015 he moved into the chief meteorologist position after Terry Gerbstadt retired.

 “Justin has been a great member of the Fox 21 weather team,” said Fox 21 news director, Joe Cole. “He has a wonderful sense of humor and was able to balance that with credible weather forecasting. While we will certainly miss Justin he has earned the career advancement to a bigger television market and we wish him all the best.”

He is a graduate of Mississippi State University and has been in broadcasting for more than 29 years. Chambers' last day at the Fox 21 is December 1. There’s been no word yet on his replacement.
