Meteorologist Makes a DiscoveryABC7 (WLS) meteorologist Greg Dutra knew the studio had new equipment, but he did not try it out thoroughly before going on air Thursday morning. And then he accidentally touched the screen.
Weatherman Called His Kids During Weather Report to Warn Them About a TornadoThis weatherman went from live mode to dad mode in a sec after he realized his home was in the path of a tornado.It was another day for Doug Kamerer, NBC Washington’s weatherman. He was on air reporting the day’s weather when a tornado warning was raised. Once he realized that the tornado was likely to affect his home, he immediately got on his phone to warn his kids at home. As soon as he hung up, he then explained to the audience what every parent must have understood all too well: kids nowadays don’t watch TV, therefore they would not have heard about the tornado warning. Kamerer made them take shelter in the basements. Luckily, the warning was rescinded some time later, danger averted. Still, his papa bear mode drew the support of many, who called his action ‘heartening’.#weatherman #tornado #TV
Did This TV Weatherman Fart on Air?When a weatherman is heard passing a bit of gas while on air, of course the natural course of action is the internet frenzy that follows.The video in question was posted by one Jordan Doenges who identified the man in that WDRB weather program as “Jude”. Immediately after the video went up, it set off a torrent of amusing comments and memes. You’d be surprised how many weather-related quips one could generate.“Alternate headline: "Weatherman can't control wind"” tweeted one user. Said another, “I think it was a warm front moving in from the South.”However, the wind suddenly took an about turn when it turned out our weatherman was apparently misidentified. The man named Jude did exist, but he wasn’t the guy in the clip. Jude Redfield is in fact another weatherman at WDRB Morning Meteorologist. His colleague, Marc Weinberg, has the honor of being the true star of the accidental viral moment.#weatherman #fart
