No weather person at ABC 10

Post by ++++ » Tue Mar 27, 2018 1:06 pm

Since early March, now Ulises Garcia, piped in from Alpena,MI, is gone and the news person now reads the forecast.
TV6 and Local3 both have meteorologists.
An obvious cost-cutting measure.
I enjoyed his forecasting and explaining how or why things happen.
Kinda sad.
Some good people have walked though those halls!

It's not a cost-cutting measure. Alpena was having trouble finding a replacement. A new meteorologist will be starting in a couple of weeks.

Since Alpena’s WBKB always had the reputation of a “starter” station that was paying barely over minimum wage, that doesn’t surprise me

Well considering Alpena is the second-smallest market, and the economy of Alpena and Alcoma counties is not the best, I'm not surprised the pay is so low.
