Angela Hill: Open Book with Derek Kevra
For four years he has been part of a great team of WWL-TV meteorologists.
Derek Kevra hit Rampart Street and fit in immediately. His easy going, but professional style earned him respect from everyone at Channel 4. But, his great smile, wonderful sense of humor and terrific sense of fun endeared him to the whole community.
Whether explaining the intricacies of an approaching storm, or helping Eric and Sally Ann learn something new in technology…Derek Kevra became one of our own.
That’s what makes saying goodbye so tough. Derek is going back home to Detroit where he started his profession and where his family still lives. He’s also excited about building a new life with his fiancée, Melissa
But, I’ll bet he’ll leave New Orleans with more than the dog he adopted at the SPCA and some great recipes for red beans.
I bet Derek Kevra will take home four years of extraordinary memories and the knowledge that the Crescent City will always be his second home.
We spent an hour getting up close & personal with Derek. It was truly a blessing to hear about New Orleans from the perspective of a newly adopted son. Not to mention the story of how Derek proposed. It’s a story you’ll definitely want to share…
Here's audio of Derek explaining to Angela on the radio how he proposed. Warning: Make sure you have tissue: Listen here
