Sam Champion might make his debut on The Weather Channel in March, at least according to a series of tweets the veteran weatherman wrote recently when asked by Twitter followers when he would return to television.

Champion left ABC News' "Good Morning America" in December, after 25 years with the network. His new position at The Weather Channel includes hosting a morning show and a managing editor position.

On Thursday, a Twitter follower of Champion’s asked the veteran weatherman when he would be back on TV.




The Weather Channel has yet to confirm when Champion will be on the air, saying only that his show will debut in early 2014, according to a December press release.

In the same release, the 52-year-old, Kentucky-born Champion described the move to The Weather Channel as a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to do what I love most at a network that lives and breathes the weather."

"The Weather Channel is currently undergoing an incredible renaissance, having recently rebranded its look and feel and transformed the way it presents the weather," Champion continued. "While it is an extremely difficult decision for me to leave ABC and my ‘GMA’ family, I look forward to combining my interest in weather reporting and decades of experience to continue making The Weather Channel the premier destination for the more than 46 million weather enthusiasts and beyond. My ABC family could not have been more supportive and gracious during this transition."
