It was last week that Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman told FNC’s Megyn Kelly that research showing the effects of climate change “is bad, bad science.”

A few days later, Weather Channel CEO David Kenny, distanced the company from the comments, emphasizing that Coleman’s views do not represent those of the network.

This weekend in Chicago, longtime Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore weighed in with TVNewser on the back-and-forth.

“John certainly has the right to his own opinion,” Cantore says. “I don’t necessarily agree with it, but that’s his opinion. This whole argument about climate change is just explosive, [and] it’s not getting any better.  It’s gotten so explosive, that neither side wants to hear each other.”

As a result, Cantore says, Americans are missing an opportunity to find ”common ground” by embracing environmental responsibility.

“At the end of the day,” he says, “how can anyone argue with being a good steward to our planet?”

The Evening Ticker: Lauer, Suratt, Kelly

  • The “Today” show kicked off its second annual No-Shave “Today.” Matt Lauer, Al RokerWillie Geist and Carson Daly will once again grow beards this month to raise awareness for men’s health issues. Last year, the show raised more than $100,000.

  • Samuel T. Suratt, the Archivist for CBS News for more than 20 years from 1969 to 1991, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in New York City. He was 81.

  • In case you missed it, Megyn Kelly got the “Saturday Night Live” treatment over the weekend. Cecily Strong played the FNC anchor for SNL’s cold open, which focused on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s defense of Ebola quarantines. WATCH:

In Profile (FNC Edition): Kelly, Hannity, Cavuto

Megyn Kelly is in the latest issue of Fortune magazine in a feature titled “Best Advice From CEOs,” in which CEOs, EVPs, company founders, and one cable news anchor, share their secrets to success:

My boss told me, “People will imitate you. They will try to do what you do. Never worry about them, because there’s only one you. So whatever you’re doing that makes you special, they can imitate it. But they can never be the same person, with the same delivery, with the same gifts and so on.”

Sean Hannity talked to Reuters about his new “jiu-jitsu” regimen, his matchmaking skills, and his politics: Read more

Weather Channel Distances Itself From Founder’s Climate Change Comments

ColemanKellyDavid Kenny, CEO of the Weather Channel, is distancing the company from comments made by Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman on Megyn Kelly‘s show earlier this week.

“Not only is the ice not melting, more polar bears are alive and happy today than we’ve had in 100 years,” Coleman told Kelly. The  research behind climate change “is bad, bad science,” he says.

In a note to staff today, obtained by TVNewser, Kenny writes, “Mr. Coleman does have a place in our company’s history, and we appreciate the contributions he made more than 30 years ago. However, we want to be clear: John Coleman is no longer affiliated with our company, and his opinions do not represent The Weather Company. We regret any confusion this has caused.”

Coleman, 80, has worked in TV news for more than 60 years. He was the first weather anchor for “Good Morning America” in the 1970s. In 1981 he co-founded the Weather Channel. He’s also worked at WCBS in New York, WBBM, WLS and WMAQ in Chicago,  and spent the last 20 years of his career KUSI in San Diego.

Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes Honored by Green Beret Foundation

KEANE_AILESThe Green Beret Foundation honored Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes, Publisher of the Putnam County News & Recorder and Putnam County Courier with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their personal support of the nation’s military and Green Berets. Army Gen. Jack Keane (left) presented the Aileses with their awards.

“Behind every successful man is a surprised wife,” Ailes joked as he began his remarks.

Last night’s event at the Pierre Hotel was emceed by FNC anchor Bill Hemmer. Various FoxNewsers were there including Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Harris Faulkner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Steve Doocy, Janice Dean. Megyn Kelly dropped by for the cocktail hour, so she could be back for “The Kelly File.”

“When President Kennedy helped form the Green Berets he knew that some day they’d be needed,” Ailes went on to say. “The values and principles that lead you to go in harm’s way willingly are unique American traits. The people in this room — particularly the Green Berets — have my greatest respect because they are prepared to risk everything for an idea, and that idea is called America.”

Elaine Howard, CEO of Gannett Government Media and Lieutenant General John Mulholland, Jr, former Deputy Commander of the Special Operations Command, were also honored.
