I don’t know any of the weather anchors in the OKC market, but I do know some in a market not too far away and they aren’t just some talent putting spin on the NWS forecasts. They actually have degrees in what they do and know the science of forecasting, otherwise they wouldn’t be allowed to put the seals next to their name. The only person in the market without the seal appears to be Greg Whitworth over at Fox 25. So you can’t say they are just talent. Otherwise, Payne would already be dead from all the tornado chasing he does. But the point is, don’t totally dismiss them. Sure, they hype it a bit. They wouldn’t have a job otherwise. What do you think the point of the weather blog is @ KOCO? To get more viewers. It’s not just for educating people on the weather. Everyone hypes. Sometimes it costs them their jobs. Jon Slater on Fox 25 was let go from Fox 23 in Tulsa for grandstanding. But for the most part the weather anchors in our market do alright. Grandstand a bit, but do alright.
