New Met for KHBS/KHOG

This from a tipster:

The replacement for former morning meteorologist Justin Povick at 40/29 in Fayetteville is a done deal.


His name is Patrick Crawford, and he starts August 20th...though thereare rumors he will start by filling in for Chief Meteorologist DrewMichaels before going to mornings.

Most recently Crawford was Chief Meteorologist at KSWT (CBS) in Yuma, AZ.

Why would you need a weather forcaster in Yuma, AZ?

As forecasting is concerned, he will have his work cut out for him. Yuma, AZ is quite possibly the worst weather market in the country.

Patrick is coming to 40/29 with 3 years forecasting experience. In addition to Yuma, Patrick has also worked in Rockford, IL, and obtained a meteorology degree from Northern Illinois University. He has experience forecasting both severe weather and winter weather.

It amazes me that we're 7 posts into this blog page, and already people are so critical. Let's wait and see how the guy does on the air.

3 meteorologists

All 3: hired with little or no experience forecasting severe weather in this region.

Yeah, and if you have a legitimate degree with experience, then you typically will have no problem...unless you went to mississippi state!

Remind me to never take a meteorologist job in Arkansas... you people would have me before the firing squad just because I have a degree from Mississippi State and have worked in two small markets... geez

Driving skills? Sounds like he's got a few fender benders on his record?

I have family that live in Yuma. They say this guy is a tool, and nobody has noticed he is even gone.
That is sad.

A lot of people in Yuma are missing Patrick. Viewers enjoyed having someone with an actual meteorology degree in town.

I would switch to CBS for News or maybe KNWA to see Matt. I would watch Lewis or Scoff for weather and depending on new host, I would watch KNWA for sports followed by KHBS. Sad but I don't know any of their names.

Hey channel flipper, you don't like Cannon and Bragg? What about the wonderful Nelie Jones?

 
At 12:33 AM, August 17, 2007, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I work for a station in Fort Smith and watch all three. KFSM continues to dominate and always will.

Craig Cannon does a fine job but his act has gotten old. Donna is fine too but I just can't watch her anymore after everything I now know.

Matt seems very comfortable delivering the news and interacting with co-anchors and reporters. I think he will go far. Nelie is looking much better and has grown on me.

I believe all three stations have talented anchors but I prefer to watch KFSM.

We know you'll watch 5 because they pay you 6 bucks an hour to run camera.

Garrett is the ONLY straight male weatherman at 5 so if your gonna make comments then I hope you know that that other guy at 5 is the only officially gay weatherman in this market.

One main thing I have learned after reading the entries all over this blog......All newscasts in Arkansas are horrible. The anchors, reporters, management, camera people....they all are the worst. It's really amazing that these people actually keep a station on the air. That's not my opinion, it's just what I read all over this board. Have a great weekend people...if you can!

In addition to being a bigot (which is pathetic enough), your grammar is horrible. Very sad indeed.

I think Ted Z. is a good weather man, why didn't they just leave him on the am show? Instead they hired some other person and put him back on weekends. Where is the loyalty? TED ROCKS!!

He was on this morning and did a pretty good job. Will have to wait for severe weather to see how he pronounces "Pushmatah" county in Oklahoma. LOL

This kid set the bar pretty high from himself.

But I want to know what's up with 5's back to school promos with zit faced kids reading lines with speech impediments. It's so obvious they picked local kids. They could have at least hired actors or kids in the drama club. Talented people like the Flick and Garrett put themselves in the amateur hour when they're in a commercial alongside people who can barely speak.

It's sad to see when they make themselves look bad like that.

I would be more concerned that he can forecast severe weather than how he pronounces city or county names.

Kendra Kent has been at Channel 5 for quite a while and she still doesn't know what she's doing. And really 99% of Channel 5's forecasts are exact copy and pastes of the forecasts of The National Weather Service.
