    Default Sarah Libby

    I got a note on my Facebook page that Sarah Libby is leaving KOCO Friday, and has accepted a job with Chesapeake. She will be missed, but I wish her the best with her new job.

    Interesting move...Guess the non stop 100+ degree sunny days bored her enough to move

    I'm really sad that we lost her at KOCO. Every one of us love her dearly. I hope she will continue to visit us on the Live Wire regularly. Good luck, Sarah Libby, may life bring you the best.

    Chesapeake? Is she going to be a weather consultant or is she leaving the meteorology field?

    Here is what she said on Facebook.

    Sarah Libby
    Hello my friends! I will be announcing my departure from Channel 5 tomorrow on the air. I just felt like my Facebook friends should know before that. I have accepted a job here in OKC at Chesapeake Energy as an Engineer Tech. I am very excited about this new opportunity and new path in my life. Although I may not have time to do weather updates everyday, I will prob still talk about bigger events from time to time. My last day is Friday.

    I'm going to miss her deeply. :-(

    My heart breaks, because she is a major part of the KOCO Live Wire family. The hours we all spent together chatting about everything. The nights she spent at the station overnight socializing with us when LW would be online. She is one great woman in this great state of Oklahoma.

    Yes, Damon is such a sweet guy. He has done so much for us. Hopefully he will be with us for many years to come.

    Didn't care for her. She was a weak link in their severe weather coverage from my position. There are some very strong female TV mets out there, she isn't one. Steve Carono (spelling?) is also a very weak link and hopefully he just goes away completely. They would do better poaching some talent out of the smaller markets in the Great Plains to improve their product.

    The exodus from Channel 5 continues. I thought I remember seeing that Sarah Libby also had a degree in accounting. Wonder if she is staying here or heading back to Texas?

    People leaving a station can be a good thing...or a bad thing. Yes, folks are leaving, but it's sometimes because their association with a program got them a much better job. Kinda like OU assistant coaches getting head coaching jobs elsewhere. Ch. 5 is the rising station in this market. It shouldn't be surprising that other employers might seek to tap Ch. 5's resources. Once upon a time, I was part of a similar "exodus". People wanted to paint it as folks jumping ship, when in reality, we all just got better jobs. Success breeds added opportunities. That's just a fact.

    They were quick to gather together for a photograph to update their weather blog.



    No more Sarah Libby. What is disappointing is that she didn't even make a farewell post. I don't know if she will still be able to have access to give her thoughts on the weather once in a while.

    Thunder she doesn't work for KOCO 5 anymore so that is why she can't write in the weather blog

    1) They didn't gather together for a photograph. Those are individual stock images that are just overlaid in Photoshop.

    2) Like Tyler said, she isn't going to post on a KOCO blog when she doesn't work there anymore. Well I guess she could in the comments section, but it would probably be strongly discouraged.

    Venture, there has been posts by some known people on the weather blog that didn't work for KOCO. Also another example, this guy at KFOR (forgot his name) posted for a short while on the weather blog for KFOR that he started after he left the station before KFOR decided to delete it all together. Just saying, it is possible, just hoping to see her chime in sometime.
