NewsChannel 9 News Director Tom Henderson announced Friday that former Channel 3 Meteorologist David Glenn will be joining the NewsChannel 9 StormTrack Team.

"David and his wife are originally from the Tennessee Valley," said Henderson. "He has been tracking severe weather at WPMI-TV in Mobile, Alabama since 1997. David started his career with WRCB-TV here in Chattanooga in 1991. David and his wife Rebecca are excited about bringing their family back to the community. He is very familiar with the Tennessee Valley's weather quirks and viewers can look forward to his expertise."

Henderson also announced the promotion of Meteorologist Bill Race to Senior Meteorologist.

"Time and time again, Bill has demonstrated his devotion to our newsroom and our viewers," Henderson said. "He's talented, experienced and a great personal friend to everyone at this station, and many in the community."

"With David's hiring, Bill's promotion and Erin Sebree's quick start, the StormTrack 9 Team will lead the market in weather coverage. It will be fun to see just how good these three can be!"

Neal Pascal, the chief meteorologist at Channel 9 for three decades, left the station recently.
