Jamie Staton is moving on from WMUR after 26 years to Easter Seals of New Hampshire and Vermont, according to WMUR.

Jamie has been on the sports desk for WMUR for decades.  On his last broadcast, Jamie wanted to thank Alicia (his news director), Jason King (who worked beside him for 26 years), all his friends at Dartmouth, and his Mom Martha.  Of course, he also thanked his work family.

Jamie sounded like he was struggling to hold back tears.  I'm sure it was a very emotional day for him and everyone else at WMUR.  You can't stay at the same job for 26 years without being emotional about it.

NH Broadcaster of the Year

A few years ago, Jamie was honored by the New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters with their most prestigious award – Broadcaster of the Year.

The New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters produces the Granite Mic Awards every year, and the last award of the night is for the "Broadcaster of the Year."   The winner of that award is based on peer submissions to the NHAB.  The winner of that award does not know until that night that they are being honored.  His family was there to stand behind him as he accepted the award.

The NHAB chooses a broadcaster who is committed to their job, shows a dedication to broadcasting and its evolution, is enthusiastic, and is committed to the community.

Easter Seals of New Hampshire and Vermont

Jamie has decided to go to the Easter Seals of New Hampshire and Vermont, and has promised to come back soon.

All the best, Jamie!  Martha and the New Hampshire viewers will miss you!
