Paging Jim Cantore and Sam Champion: Please pick up the white courtesy phone. America has a question for you, “Is this the end of the world as we know it?”
Typically, one could go to The Weather Channel for local reports, airline backups, and the occasional meteorological quip from any generic host. Some joke about “it’s hail out there” or something that would cause one to groan — if they were paying attention.
Then, Jim Cantore (bald guy on the left) became a thing of legend. He wanted to be the guy in the eye of the storm. That followed Sam Champion (always pretty guy on the right) leaving his post at GMA and getting his own show at The Weather Channel.
Then, capitalism. And that’s when it got really good.
