you got that right. I already do not watch channel 8 just because she is so annoying. Can hardly stand to listen to her on Wood radio on my way to work. Sure hope she enjoys her holiday weekend off...(she's sure mentioned it enough) cause I sure will enjoy her weekend off.

Bill was responsible for inspiring me to become who I am today: A TV meteorologist. I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, living there for 20 years. Bill sparked my enthusiasm for weather in 1990, when I visited the WZZM studios for the MDA Labor Day Telethon. As an 8-year-old in my T-Rex t-shirt, I dumped my pennies into the giant fish tank, as an example from Mom on helping the less fortunate. I reached up to shake Bill's hand, expressing my enthusiasm for weather. Bill whisked me away to 13's weather center, where he gave me several weather books and pamphlets. With a bout of storms a few days later, my fear of storms turned into a passion for them. Today--because of Bill--I'm living my dream career, as a TV meteorologist in Jackson, MS. Side note: I attended the same high school and university as former WOOD-TV 8 meteorologist Ginger Zee.
That was a fascinating story Chris ....... YAWN!!

What's great about Bill (and Craig) is they have passion for their work. So many Meteorologists seem to be nothing more than weather readers.

Great to see Bill getting the nod- Congrats! Always enjoy Bill's reports and appreciate his weather expertise and insight.

I thought it was a great story.

Much better than yours on how Ronald McDonald inspired you to be the best darn burger flipper this world has ever known.

Good Morning-Want to congratulate Bill on his new appointment as Head Meteorologist, know he will do a bang up job, as usual. Also a big thank you to Craig for his many years of keeping us updated on the weather for our area. Many of our activities relied on his daily forecast. We will miss seeing his friendly face and feeling his comforting presence in those frightening times of storm. He has earned a well deserved retirement.
One sideline this morning - I hope you aren't taking your information from the Press forecast. They are predicting SNOW likely for today!!! They either need to watch WOOD-TV weather, or get a new proof-reader!! Gave us our laugh for the day anyway.
Keep up the good work, we'll be watching.....
