All I can say to that is OH GOD! Come on, I want the weather I don't want drama. Welcome welcome, life's a bowl of cherries what ever, just give me accuracy and keep the drama of the air. Your not trying out for an acting job.
Yep, I'm with you. I just want to know what the weather is going to be for the next 24 hours. I don't need to know why and don't even try to tell me what it's going to be like for a week or so 'cause that changes hour by hour.

Having watched him for a few years here, Chad will likely bring more drama than you can stomach. He's pretty tough to watch.

I am not sure what you are talking about with drama. He has always done a great job at WTHI. I guess now we will have to watch WTWO. :(

You mean to tell me you have watched him with some regularity and don't see drama darned near every time he comes on air? Wow. That's tough to believe.

Live is a chair of bullies, I am sure Chad will do his best to give us an accurate forcast, however we all know,(at least most of us do) that weather is not an exact science, and can change from min to min.

WECLOME CHAD EVANS!!! be safe on your trip to Lafayette!

It's too bad I live WAY too far south to pick up WLFI.

You will be missed Chad. I've never been fond of Kevin and David. I'll probably be watching alot more of WTWO now.

Good luck.

Chad Evans was always the one meteorologist at WTHI that you could tell was really passionate about the weather. His forecasts were almost always spot on.

Hope all of you at Lafayette like him as much as we do.

You people are getting a good fellow here with Chad. He's a down to earth, likeable fellow.

Sounds like he has made the right move for the right reasons.

I am one of his WTHI viewers.

Going to miss your weather broadcast, Chad. Best of luck to you. WTHI 'weather' will not be as informative or interesting without you.

Ya know what's really sad about that part... I've heard they won't replace him, and instead, they will have Jessica Hayes fill in from time to time. I really hope that's wrong.
Nothing against Jessica Hayes, but she's no meteorologist.

She's not a meteorologist? Who cares, anymore it take a computer expert and a good communicator plus at least some knowledge of the weather. Does it take an experienced legislator to be president? Evidently not.

As a viewer of WTHI-TV 10, I looked forward to Chad's weather forecasts on the weekends and subbing for both David Wire (in the mornings) and Chief Meterologist Kevin Orpurt (weeknights).

Sadly, he will be missed in the "Wabash Valley" but I do wish him well as your new Chief Meterologist.

Watching the weather forecasts on WTHI-TV 10 will not be the same.
