Reactions to Doug Hill’s Death

Alison Starling, a 7News anchor, wrote: “I am in shock over the loss of this wonderful man. Doug Hill was so many things. He was a talented meteorologist, the best of the best. He was a kind, funny family man deeply rooted in his faith. It was an honor to work with him, and Doug, we miss you so much already.”

Tom Roussey, a 7 News reporter, recalled how he went from watching the meteorologist on TV to becoming his friend and colleague.

“I watched Doug on the news as a kid & as an adult had the honor of calling him a coworker. He was as nice & genuine in person as on TV,” Roussey wrote. “He invited me once to hear him guest preach at Chesapeake Church, where he did an excellent job. We’ve lost a great man & a DC local news legend.”
