Ed then traveled south to WJBF in Augusta, Georgia. He covered both the unprecedented Hurricane Joaquin rainfall in 2015 and the historic Georgia/South Carolina ice storm in 2014.

Ed assisted with the coverage of multiple significant weather events during his most recent assignment in Tampa, Florida, including Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Hurricane Irma in 2017, and Hurricane Michael in 2018. Bloodsworth is a current member of both the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society. He is an American Meteorological Society (AMS) Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM).
