Weather Channel was so much BETTER in the 80s!!! ah man!!!
Little story about that....
My last years in College were at Lyndon State College in the NE Kingdsom of VT (coldest place long winter ever lived) was one of few let alone such a small one that had a full fledged meteorological curriculum. The head of it was up for tenure and I forget why denied much to the dismay of his students... but he promptly said FU and moved to Atlanta, and did guess what he did??? He was a Co-founder of the WX channel, at pretty much the same time Ted Turner came up with CNN end of the 70's early 80's.
For the first several years I knew every on air person on the WX Ch they were all near or classmates. They probably still pull new talent from there, as far as I know though he was denied tenure the program still exists.
Was originally a VT state teachers college but in the 70's got into specialized curriculum.... parks & rec (30+ years before the series), media communication (my field), and meteorology, as well as still liberal arts for the teachers/politicians to be.
A classmate of mine at the college FM radio station, (GM) ended up a state Rep and/or Senator. (They must know media)--
