Facebook Page Started in Support of Former KMBC Meteorologists

teachman_nichols_pageSome viewers of Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC are upset that meteorologist Joel Nichols and Lisa Teachman aren’t at the station anymore and have started their own facebook page to let people know.

The page, called “I Support Lisa & Joel!” has, at this writing, 776 members. The website’s mission is written on the page, “In case you haven’t heard, Joel Nichols and Lisa Teachman were forced from KMBC 9. The Mission of this group is to show support for Joel & Lisa.”

One commenter wrote, “It was a pleasure getting to know both Lisa and Joel!! Half my life was spent watching Joel. Lisa is a grade A professional!! I will miss them both!!”

Nichols left KMBC in December after 25 years at the station. Teachman’s last day at the station was January 31.

TVSpy has asked for KMBC’s reaction to the page. We will update when we hear back.
