The person who fired him left for another
position in VA I think it was less than 30 days after. I sent KOB an email inquiring and all they'd say is they couldn't comment on personnel matters.

Bottom line is they won't say why they fired him but they do have a tendency to employ the younger crowd.

Thanks I googled Larry and found this out. I like all of the mature generation of reporters that were on other stations that are now on 13.

Me too! I rarely watch KOB anymore because of that, very rare indeed! NEVER the weather on it.

A former weatherman that was popular with people and KOB dumped. He'd been there for quite some time. The published facts read more like a scandal but then we'll never know the real truth.

You got nailed for that but don't worry about it. Larry Rice was an arrogant nothing who felt it necessary to remind us constantly that HE was a PROFESSIONAL. One fine day he referred to storms that dumped a lot of rain but didn't have any one little lightning as "Heavy Rainers". I actually know a number of REAL meteorologists and several meteorology professors so I asked them if they'd ever heard of a "heavy rainer"? all of them asked me what the heck I was talking about? So, I told them about this local weather guy out here and what he said the "professionals" called them. Two of these meterologists actually said, "Oh, no! Not THAT guy!" Seems he'd made an a55 out of himself at a number of conferences. So, I don't hate the guy but I really don't care where he is. Probably B.S.ing some other people somewhere else by now but, come to think of it, ABQ is getting pretty low down when you are talking TV markets. So, when you are in the basement, be sure to bring a shovel and a pick!
