After graduation, Sign landed his first job in Montgomery, Alabama, spent time in Odessa/Midland, Texas, and then joined ABC News’ Birmingham affiliate in the late 1990s where he proved himself as a sharp reporter with a knack for telling local stories.

He moved onto a bigger market, Phoenix, in 2005 where he spent 13 years as a reporter and anchor.

During that time, Sign gained national attention for breaking the news of a secret meeting on the Phoenix Sky Harbor tarmac between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

It was at college where he met his wife, Laura, who was a University of Alabama volleyball player.

Sign’s wife, Laura, was also a University of Alabama alum. She played volleyball for the Crimson Tide and was named All-SEC during her tenure, according to AL.com.

The couple wanted to raise their three sons in Birmingham, according to Sign’s bio on ABC 33/40. The TV station said Sign turned down a national network job in order to preserve time with his family: “That decision put him in a place where he could see his boys off to school in the mornings, watch them play baseball in the evenings, and take them fishing on the weekends.”
