A Nod to Atlanta’s Kirk Mellish

Atlanta Meteorologist Kirk Mellish Retires from WSB Radio

In 1987, Kirk Mellish became Atlanta’s—and the nation’s—first radio-only, full-time meteorologist on WSB Radio on AM 750. Over the years, Kirk has (of course) mentioned the ‘apocalypse’ of the 1982 snow storm known affectionately as Snow Jam ’82, and a number of times, this website SnowJam82.com as a resource.

As of August 2021, Kirk officially retired from broadcasting. Read the official announcement of Kirk Mellish’s retirement from WSB Radio.

For many Atlantans, with our insane traffic and extra-long commute times, Kirk has been a regular part of their daily routine. The ‘Mellish Meter’ and the single ‘ding’ of the bell that corresponded to a ‘10’ on the Mellish Meter will be missed! After 34 years of covering Atlanta’s weather, it’s a well-deserved retirement. Thanks, Kirk, for all the forecasts and your always-insightful weather blog!
