Detroit insiders tell FTVLive that a week ago, WJBK morning meteorologist Ben Bailey handed in his two week notice to VP News/ND Dana Hahn. 

Bailey has been with the station nearly nine years, as morning meteorologist. 

His last day was Friday, as he uses out his vacation time.

He posted this message to the station's website: 

"After nearly nine years at Fox 2, I've decided it's time for me to move on. I appreciate the opportunity Fox has given me to do what I love most. A heartfelt "thank you" to all of our loyal viewers. You are the reason for our success in the morning."

Hahn has stated in the past "the only reason people watch the morning news is for Ben Bailey." It was a line that didn't sit well with some staffers and now it means viewers have no reason to watch WJBK in the mornings.

No word yet on where Bailey is headed, though it is common knowledge he aspires to be a chief meteorologist says our source. 

Stay tuned...
