Bad math. He came here in 1977 or 1978.

They told the story of how he came here from Iowa on WTVN this afternoon. It was after the Blizzard of 1977 when Jerry Rasor was snowed in and they couldn't dig him out for a week. Their weather reporting was a mess during the blizzard because he couldn't make it to the station and they lost a ton of viewers, so they decided they needed a meteorologist.

Is Jym still as fat as he was? He looked awful.

Not commenting on appearance so much as his health.

I didn't see the broadcast. He was pretty round at college hockey tournament last spring. With his heart problem exercise is difficult. It is a never ending downward spiral. Same with COPD. If the person is big , not necessarily obese when either set weight loss by other than starvation is tough on them physically

Watching TV now.

It is so weird to see Jym Ganahl on Channel 6.

There has to be something they can do about his weight.

On WTVN the other day he said he's been working there for about a month.

Terri Sullivan is doing the news from the newsroom. Looks like they're getting a new set.

He has a terminal heart problem. At this point might as well eat drink and bang what ever he wants. Not like he has 30 more years to live
Guess I'd have to agree with your logic, Spook. Live what's left the best you can make of it.

77 and 78 were both terrible winters. A tough choice as to which was worse.

I thought we'd finally be rid of his whiny, "the sky is falling" alarmist forecasts, but no - the guy won't go away. I'm sure his pomposity has convinced him that Central Ohio can't get on without his gloomy, exaggerated reporting. Go back to Iowa. Please. And look into gastric bypass surgery for heaven's sake. I mean, I realize the camera adds weight, but I've always heard it's only 10 pounds, not 310 pounds.
