The gang at Good Morning America bid farewell to one of their own on Wednesday. Meteorologist Sam Champion, who had been with the program since 2006, marked his last day on the ABC morning show.

His colleagues gave an emotional send-off to the popular weatherman, as he heads off to run The Weather Channel. Champion’s teary-eyed GMA co-host Josh Elliott told his pal:
