“Well that was awkward,” Finnerty said when he finally realized they were on the air. He went on to explain that their monitor was down and they hadn’t been cued to start the show. [h/t meteorologist Aaron Perlman]

From 2007-10, Finnerty was a sports anchor at New England Cable News. He has most recently been a wealth management advisor at Merrill Lynch in Boston. At KBAK-KBFX, he will anchor the morning newscasts alongside Lynda Halligan and weathercaster Aaron Perlman.

Wearing a skin-tight green body suit and head covering, Perlman delivered the weather for most of the morning in a suit and sunglasses.

Taking a page from KUTV’s social media playbook, the morning team at KBAK-KBFX in Bakersfield, CA launched their own “Facebook Faceoff,” a competition to see who can gain the most fans on the ubiquitous social networking portal.
The clear winner has turned out to be weathercaster Aaron Perlman, who whipped out his acoustic guitar and made a music video (above).
As Lost Remote points out, though, Perlman was originally asking viewers to be his friend and not his fan so he quickly hit Facebook’s 5,000 person limit on friends. Perlman has since launched a fan page.
