Longtime KARE Meteorologist Ken Barlow Signs with Rival KSTP

Meteorologist Ken Barlow is returning to the Twin Cities, where he worked for most of his career before jumping to Boston’s WBZ in 2006. KSTP, a Hubbard Broadcasting-owned ABC-affiliate, announced today that Barlow, who spent 16 years with rival KARE, will join its weather team in June.

“Ken may have left Minnesota but Minnesotans have never forgotten him,” said news director Lindsay Radford. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him back to town.”
