After 3 years, Crystal Egger is leaving The Weather Channel and headed to the Left Coast.

Egger came to TWC from Denver, but is now headed back to California which is home.  She is not tipping off where she is headed just yet, but rumor has it she is going to a SoCal station.

Here is the internal memo sent out to the staff at TWC announcing that Egger is leaving:

From: Jennifer Rigby <jennifer.rigby@weather.com>
Date: September 2, 2013, 6:26:14 PM EDT
To: DL OCM Department <OCM_Department@weather.com>, DL Producers <Producers@weather.com>,
Subject: Crystal Egger

I am sorry to announce that Crystal Egger is leaving us.  That lure of home is just too strong and Crystal has a great opportunity that will take her back home to California.  She can't reveal the details yet but stay tuned. 

Crystal joined us three years ago and has been an important member of the Weather Center Live team and always a dedicated team player for live programming.   We and her fans will certainly miss her on TWC. 

Her last official day is Friday, September 6th, but she'll be in town packing through the 15th and will jump in if the tropics act up before she leaves Atlanta.

Please join me in wishing Crystal much success in her next adventure and we hope to see her again on the air.
Jennifer

Here's the announcement on her TWC FB page.

"Crystal Egger
A bittersweet move! I've decided to leave The Weather Channel for an opportunity in my home state of California where my family resides. I can't reveal the job specifics just yet - but stay tuned. This has been an incredible ride and I'm so honored to have worked alongside the *best* and *coolest* weather geeks in the biz! I will miss my Weather Channel family like crazy!!!

Thank *you* for watching and for being a FB friend. I hope you'll stay connected through this wonderful world of social media! My final day at TWC in Atlanta will be tomorrow. This is not a goodbye, just the start of a new adventure!"

She was one of my favorite OCMs. She will be missed. She will likely be replaced by Alex Wilson.

Who looks almost identical to Crystal with all that makeup on.

Never was a real Crystal fan but glad she's landing a job back home.

Well good for her. It's always nice to have family members close by. Although I don't watch Weather Center Live all
the time i'm really going to miss her. She was a great OCM and wish her the best!  :wave: I'll be sure to DVR Weather Center Live Tonight

Crystal was good and also good looking.  ;)

Crystal is one of those OCMs who grew on me over time.  I really did come to enjoy her when I watched.  Glad she'll be back home surrounded by family.
