CBS LA’s Jackie Johnson Channels The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

In 1964, Catherine Deneuve announced herself to the film world via the French musical drama The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

Here’s an exclusive first look at one of the article’s seven photos.

Jackie Johnson, Dorothy Lucey Lead the Way at FishbowlLA

One of the more entertaining ways to crunch website analytics at the end of a calendar year is to take a look at search queries that were phrased in the form of a question. These types of pathways are extra emphatic, a Web search tool for those who want to confirm something very specific.

In 2012, the winner in the FishbowlLA Q-category was CBS LA weather forecaster Jackie Johnson. Four of the top 20 search-engine questions that led people to our site this year were about her, or more precisely, her significant other:

Jackie Johnson married? (#7)
Who is Jackie Johnson married to? (#12)
Who is Jackie Johnson engaged to? (#15)
Is Jackie Johnson married? (#19)

Male Weatherman Sues CBS for Gender Discrimination

Meteorologist Kyle Hunter has over two decades of weather broadcasting experience in Southern California, but when job openings popped up at local stations KCBS and KCAL, he couldn’t land an interview. Instead, those jobs went to younger, hotter, and decidedly more female weathercasters.

Hunter is now suing CBS for age and gender discrimination.

According to the lawsuit, Hunter, “contacted a manager at KCAL to ask why he had not been considered for that position. In response, a member of KCAL management said that the stations aired a lot of sports broadcasts and catered to its many male viewers, and he said ‘You wouldn’t be the type men would want to look at.’”

The weatherbabes hired by the CBS affiliate stations are Jackie Johnson at KCBS and Evelyn Taft at KCAL. Both are easy on the eyes, and according to Hunter, less qualified than himself.

Jackie Johnson Wedding Flies Under Doppler Radar

Three months ago, Tony Pierce noticed a monumental ring on the engagement-wedding finger of CBS 2 weather gal Jackie Johnson. It was, he blogged, a “developing” story tinged quite possibly with (his) “infinite sadness.”

Last Friday, Pierce—formerly blog editor at the LA Times and now working in that same capacity at KPCC—was able to confirm his summer scoop, via Johnson’s posting of June Aruba Antigua wedding pictures on her Facebook page. It’s rather amazing that she was able to keep this all so quiet. Noted Pierce:

OK, so the busblog was two months late on the news, but do you know anyone else who even whispered about it? Anyways, congratulations Jackie Johnson. When you are telling us the news, we stop what we’re doing. Quite a trick when we’re talking about LA weather, which is generally lovely. Except for today.

How Cute. Jackie Johnson’s Got A Stalker.

jackie_johnson_913_2.jpgSomeone’s got it bad for KCAL 9′s Jackie Johnson. The undeniably hot “meteorologist” (do they still use that word?) has sparked Internet interest before, but now Soup Cans is tracking Johnson’s each and every outfit.

We are totally and completely creeped out. (And, maybe just a little peeved that our own sartorial selections don’t warrant a mention. Hmph.)
