Jim Madaus Retires

Post by NS8401 » Wed May 31, 2017 10:23 pm

After 33 years here (and 42 total) he's done doing the weather on Detroit TV...

He'll be replaced by Karen Carter.

He always seems pretty decent on the air, but a real weiner in person and talking down to younger weather people to be.
Who was the lady DJ that had to work with Mad Dog Madus at 62? She would be good for the job?

I always found the weather inserts on channel 62 rather pointless.

Somehow I'm surprised that 62 manages to have the current CBS O&O package, minus the CBS 62/"CBSDetroit.com"/"(social media logos) CBSDetroit" bug, the intros and the copyright stamps. At least that's one area they're pretty good at.
For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

Looks like WWJ-TV viewers will be seeing more of Karen "thunthine and theventy-thix" Carter.
