Is Randy Brock Done With TV for Good or for Now?
Last night, Randy Brock signed off after 14 years on KTTC-TV, but is he done for good?
As a broadcaster, I can tell you first-hand how addicting this industry is. I've been lucky enough to be on the radio for 15 years and can't imagine doing anything else. During my career I've seen people leave, only for them to return after a few months because they couldn't shake the broadcasting bug.
Brock was Rochester's favorite weatherman, so I'm sure KTTC did everything they could to convince him to stay. And it wouldn't surprise me if rival stations reached out when it was announced that he wasn't returning. At this point, it seems Randy is happy with his new profession. He's now a a real-estate agent in Rochester, but I have to wonder if Randy will be able to shake the broadcasting bug.
Will he want back in the game after a few months?
I can tell you based on my professional experience that nearly every TV and radio personality signs a non-compete contract with their employer, which prohibits them from working for a competitor for anywhere from 90 days to a full year, depending on terms. So it might be awhile, and maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I believe that maybe we haven't seen the last of Randy on TV.
Regardless of whether or not he ends up back on TV, I wish him the best and hope he gets to enjoy a little more time with his family.
