Doug Emblidge marks final morning show with reunion



Henrietta, N,.Y. – After two decades, Doug Emblidge marked his final regular morning broadcast on Channel 13.

Now, before we get too far, Doug’s not going anywhere. You can still catch him weekdays at 13WHAM News at 5 and 5:30 – and soon, you’ll also be able to see him on 13WHAM News at 10 on Fox Rochester.

You can still catch Alexis Arnold, Kris Betts, Matt Molloy, Michael Schwartz and meteorologist Marty Snyder five days a week beginning at 5 a.m. on Good Day Rochester.

Thursday still marked a big milestone in Doug’s career, and there were plenty of friends on hand to help mark the occasion.

A bittersweet day was made all the more sweeter later on in the morning, when some friends from morning shows past paid a visit.

Michael Schwartz dropped by Get Caked in Rochester – only to find 13WHAM alums Jennifer Johnson, Norma Holland and Ashley Doerzbacher!

That reunion was followed by yet another – with Kathy Kriz, Stan Munro and 13WHAM Chief Meteorologist Glenn Johnson getting in on the funLike we said, we know Doug’s not going far (After all, he’s still at 13WHAM!) But we’ll miss seeing him in the mornings, and we wish him the best as he tries to adapt to the difficult task of sleeping in.

Congratulations, Doug!
