We have a special goodbye in the WSBT family for someone who truly has seen it all. Isaiah Cooks has been a WSBT photojournalist here for 36 years, just about unheard of in this business.
He's been there for all the big important stories and he's made sure you were there too.
We talk a lot about the Blizzard of ‘78. But Isaiah Cooks was out in it. Getting the pictures to document that historic weather event and the information you needed to know to stay safe.
For Isaiah, it was a chance to tell a story and that's what's kept him motivated.
“Cause when you get up in the morning, you're coming to work, you know you're going to be telling a story, but you never know what kind of story you're going to be telling. That has been my juice that gets me up in the morning to get me out there day after day after day after day in all kinds of weather. That has been the thing that kept me out there.”
