NBC2 Anchor Clay Miller leaves morning show & Waterman Broadcasting
A letter from NBC2 Morning Show Anchor Clay Miller:
I am often asked, “So what time do you get up in the morning? Like 4 a.m. or something crazy like that?”
Actually, I say, it’s 1:45 a.m and it’s usually followed by a “Whoa” or a “No way” and then, “So how long have you been doing those hours?”
My response today would be 15 years. And If you asked me why I do it, I’d simply reply because of you.
I have truly been blessed to have your support, your trust, your genuine care, and your unwavering loyalty in the morning. You gave a 33-year-old sports anchor a chance. An opportunity way back in 2006 to replace or better yet, follow a longtime beloved anchor named Trent Butler.
I had my doubts and I’m sure you may have as well. Day-by-day, month-by-month, and with incredible morning teammates, the bond was sealed.
You’ve watched me grow as an anchor, a husband, a father, and a man. You’ve gone out of your way to stop me in the grocery store just to simply say thank you for putting a smile on your face to start your day.
You’ve trusted me to host your special events that you so graciously put together. From Junior Achievement to Learning for Life to the Lehigh Chamber, Bailey Matthews Shell Museum, and the United Way it’s been my honor lending a hand to your cause.
I thank you for the laughs along the way. One that stands out is Frank Mann, year in and year out, saying in front of a Lehigh Chamber audience, that I’m in his bedroom every morning! Thank you commissioner, that one never got old, LOL!
In all seriousness, you did welcome me in your homes, yes, even your bedrooms, and you did accept me for me and allowed me to be who I am on the anchor desk as I am in person. I’ve prided myself on that and always wanted people to hear he’s exactly like he is on the desk as he is in person.
You are an amazing community here in Southwest Florida. From North Port to Everglades City, out to Clewiston, and back to the shores of Sanibel and everywhere in between, you my friends, are simply awesome. I will cherish each and every one of you and hold a place in my heart forever.
As for me, I’m stepping into this wild and crazy real estate market. You trusted me in your homes and now I hope you’ll trust me to sell yours or help you find one of your dreams. I’m thrilled to be staying local so we can continue to see each other. This time maybe it will be in person.
Thank you Southwest Florida for 17 years on the tube. I’m off to get some much needed sleep and will be seeing you soon.
All My Best,
