Bakersfield Anchor Caught Dancing on Camera

A few hours after watching weather man Aaron Perlman sit in “temporary time out” for forecasting snow that never came, viewers of Bakersfield CBS affiliate KBAK got a taste of of Noon anchor Tom Murphy grooving to the tunes the station was laying down over a graphic of the day’s stock numbers coming back from a break.

Co-anchor Courtney Bryant could be heard tossing to Murphy, who was already on camera dancing in his chair. “All right,” said Murphy. “Well I just got that dance move caught on camera,” he said before moving on with the Market Watch segment.

KBAK-KBFX Weathercaster Gets Put in Time Out After False Snow Forecast

KBAK-KBFX weathercaster Aaron Perlman was put in a “temporary time-out” this morning after wrongly predicting snow in Bakersfield over the weekend.

“There are windows in that corner. You can look out the windows,” anchor Rob Finnerty said. “Be sure sure to take note there is no snow out there.”

VIDEO: KBAK Morning Anchors Don’t Realize They’re On the Air

Oops. On KBAK Friday, anchors Lynda Halligan and Rob Finnerty were victims of an equipment failure that led to about 10 seconds of silence at the top of the morning newscast (video above).

“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.

KBAK-KBFX Weathercaster Uses Green Screen for Invisible Man Costume

KBAK-KBFX morning weathercaster Aaron Perlman dressed up as the Invisible Man for Halloween today, taking advantage of the studio’s green screen.

Wearing a skin-tight green body suit and head covering, Perlman delivered the weather for most of the morning in a suit and sunglasses. For his final forecast of the day, though, Perlman went completely invisible. Well, until the KBAK-KBFX morning crew turned off the effects for a moment, revealing Perlman’s awkward body suit (video above).

Weathercaster Wins Facebook Fans with Music Video

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.
