Still waiting to die on that hill of his choosing?

I don't think he carries the same taint as Lauren Podell, but he made a serious tactical error if he hopes to have upward market mobility. Maybe he was just looking to get out, local broadcast TV doesn't have a lot of promise.

Is he an actual weather guy or a rip and read guy with a certificate from Mississippi State?

He has two degrees from the University of Missouri - a Bachelor of Atmospheric Science and a Bachelor of Journalism.

Thanks for that, so he has a degree in a weather related field and also wanted to be on TV. Interesting if the vaccine thing is true.

A weather related field? That’s rich. Atmospheric Science is a Meteorology Degree, Einstein. And… I’ll take the over that you’re a high school dropout.

Ben Bailey wasn't the only person to resign at WDIV over their vaccination policy. At least one other long-time (not-on-air Talent) employee also left.

What are the odds Ben Bailey ends up at 62 CBS Hyper Local News (a terrible name for the show btw)?

"Hyper Local" is the corp-speak for the concept. Pretty sure it's not the title for the actual on-air/online product, which, yes, would be a terrible show name. Sort of like when the first "big-box" retailers, like Meijer, were called "hypermarkets" for a very short time.

CBS has a very strict vaccine mandate, I had to provide proof of full vaccination and booster shot just to work next Saturday's Michigan/MSU game. So if Ben really quit 4 over the vaccination mandate then he will have to get jabbed to work for 62 and pretty much every other major broadcast company.

Don’t you think he’ll just wind up working in Florida or Texas where the mandates are less… well, mandated?
