Robert Shiels stepping aside from WTOL after 27 years

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

He plans to leave when the severe weather season is over. It looks like more golfing is planned for him in the future. Best of luck to him.

I actually met him taking a tour of the WTOL studios over 10 years ago. He was quick to answer my questions and even gave me a weather map at the end. Really nice guy.

Robert's gone through allot. Glad to see he is now stable. I'm sure he'll be around and still on-air. But... something smells fishy at WTOL. There's a reason, we aren't seeing yet, regarding his leaving. Notice how he is the ONLY full-timer left on WTOL?


Something to think about- Just because I point out that you cannot do your job properly and appropriately, does not mean that anyone is calling you a bad person. However, you tell the world that you are a bad person by denying that you cannot do your job.

Did Robert get Covid? Seems like he had a health issue a while back? Hope he's doing alright, despite being married to Andrew Z's ex-wife.

No. Had a problem with the bottle.

This sucks. His forecasts weren’t full of hype, and he seemed like a genuinely nice guy on air and off. Hope he is able to get some relaxation after this.

Also if what you’re saying is true TeddyBear, I’m glad he took care of that problem. I’ve had several family members go down that road.


Take anything people say with a grain of salt, a lime wedge, and maybe a bottle of tequila.
