Sometimes a Typo Says it All

This typo is from KCTV in Kansas City. It may actually be more Freudian slip, than typo since Kansas City is still climbing out from record lows.

According to Romenesko, who first posted this pic of meteorologist Gary Amble, chief meteorologist Chris Suchan said “‘sometimes you’re up against the clock’ and type ASS when you mean AS.”

If you are in NYC today, that graphic is wrong. It is Ass cold.

Friends Remember Don Harman: ‘He Always Had Us Laughing From The Minute We Saw Him’

In the aftermath of Don Harman‘s tragic death, TVSpy asked friends and colleagues of Harman’s to share their stories of the beloved Kansas City meteorologist. In their own words, here are their memories:

KSHB chief meteorologist Gary Lezak:

Don Harman, Joe Lauria, Jeff Penner and I would get together every year at the end of tornado season in June. We would meet at an area restaurant after Don finished his morning shift and spend a few hours talking about weather, the behind the scenes of the business, and more.  He always had us laughing from the minute we saw him.  We did this almost every year until he started his family a few years ago.

Meteorologist Katie Horner Says Goodbye to KCTV

Katie Horner, who announced this summer that she would leave her post as chief meteorologist to spend more time with her two young daughters, said goodbye to KCTV on Wednesday.

In a taped segment (video inside), Horner reminisced about all of the “amazing people” she has worked with at the Kansas City CBS-affiliate.

“I still don’t know what I’m going to do when I leave KCTV 5.  But I do know one thing: I’ve got two pretty special girls,” Horner said, introducing her daughters before walking out the door with them. Read more

WTSP’s Chris Suchan Joins KCTV in Kansas City

After three years at Tampa’s WTSP, Chris Suchan is leaving to become chief meteorologist at KCTV, the CBS-affiliate in Kansas City.

Suchan replaces Katie Horner, who announced over the summer that she would step down, citing a desire to spend more time with her young daughters. Horner will reportedly exit in early November.

Blaise Labbe, the station’s news director, said in a statement that Suchan is in the process of moving to Kansas City. “His weather reports are calm and reassuring and watching him you feel as though he is just talking to friends or family,” Labbe said. “Chris doesn’t believe in hyping weather, or making more out of simple weather events. But if there is severe weather, he issues clear and precise warnings aimed directly at maintaining people’s safety.”

“I love covering the four seasons,” Suchan said. “Each represents different challenges, especially when it comes to severe weather.”

WTSP May Be Left with Just One Weathercaster in Heart of Hurricane Season

Is it possible that St. Petersburg’s WTSP may only have one weathercaster on its payroll going into the heart of hurricane season?

That’s the question Eric Deggans of the St. Petersburg Times is asking, pointing out that meteorologists Sherry Ray Hughes and Chris Suchan are both scheduled to leave the Gannett-owned station by the end of September. Their imminent departures mean that WTSP would be left with just Bobby Deskins on its weather team.

WTSP general manager Ken Tonning assures Deggans that the station, which brands itself as “Your Local Weather Authority,” is “actively pursuing replacements.”

Hughes is expected to leave the station in mid-August for personal reasons and Suchan will depart at the end of September, reportedly for a chief meteorologist post at another station.
