since he married the younger woman, he is never at work. always long weekends, week long vacations & poor Ben has to work 7-9 days in a row. why don't they get rid of Ganahl. Ben is a better weather forecaster than any of them.
tell Jym to retire then he & his young 'wife' can travel all they want to. I bet he has not worked 15 days this year.

When you stop doing your Rip Van Winkle act and pay attention to the news, you would know these questions. Point one, Ganahl signed a 7 year contract last summer/fall. Point 2, Ganahl announced Friday the 1st that he was taking leave to get his knees replaced. Bob Nunnally is also on medical leave, so they have brought Melissa Barrington back to fill in while those two are out. Finally, Point 3, Ganahl has worked way more than 15 days this year.

Obviously, you either don't have your TV on, or you are sleeping during the newscasts.

If she'd wear a Mardi Gras mask, she'd still look pretty good :)

I'm not a big fan of "meteorologists" in the first place. I liked the old days better, where Jerry Rasor would bring bimbos on the set to do the weather with him. I'll take eye candy over "meteorologists" any day of the week.

A little frumpy looking, but you guys get the idea. I remember watching the weather once and he had two blondes with him. I was just a kid, but I remember it being hilarious.

Not that anybody cares, but there used to be a picture up with Jerry Rasor hugging Miss Ohio, or some other beauty in front of the weather map. I couldn't find that one, but I stumbled onto this:

How many of you knew that Q-FM-96 was once WLW-F. As long as I've been around, that was part of the Channel 6 combo (not now, of course).

Found something close to what I was looking for, but without bimbos!

A demonstration of black belt karate during the weather on page 34.

People are too overly serious today to be amused by this sort of thing.

I go with what I heard the actual people said on air, not what crap shows up on the internet.

You just proved you're another cyberchump, wanna buy the Brooklyn Bridge from me?

Wow this brings back memories. I participated in one of those broadcasts on channel 34 With J.T. and Herb Lamprecht. J.T.was busted for selling coke and things went downhill quickly for him. As far as I know he wasn't a user, only supplied dope to some of the upper crust in and around Columbus.

They're (gym rats, that is) still kind of in the same business today, as gyms are the place to score performance enhancing drugs. Makes sense that that's where they got their start.

But I still remember all the spontaneity TV had back in those days. I can remember those gimmicks where they were doing the weather and Bob Hope might wander onto the set to "surprise" the weatherguy.

Now, it's just plain boring to watch.

At the end of the day, who really cares that Ben Gelber understands what all those colors on the radar mean? Just tell me what the temperature will be tomorrow and for the next few days. Otherwise, I want to be entertained.
