Helmer joins the station from Root Sports, where he co-hosted broadcasts of Colorado Rockies games and covered collegiate and high school athletics. He has also worked at KXTV in Sacramento and WZZM in Grand Rapids.

“This is a really exciting new addition to our news team,” news director Tim Wieland said. “The mobile weather lab is the first vehicle in the state that can travel anywhere and broadcast live weather data instantly giving our reporters and photographers the ability to cover Colorado’s extreme weather conditions including tornadoes, fires, blizzards and hail storms from even very remote locations so that viewers can have the most up-to-date and accurate reports.”
The Suburban has been updated for off-road use and includes the ability to measure wind speed, wind chill, precipitation, barometric pressure and solar intensity. It can deliver instant weather updates three different ways: through microwave, satellite and bonded cellular technology. Meteorologist Dave Aguilera recently took the lab for a spin and showed off the flat screen mounted in the back. You can see the video after the jump. Read more

Denver stations have been in overdrive this week covering an extensive wildfire that has burned more then 40,000 acres in Larimer County. On Monday, the county sheriff’s office requested that the media not show images of destroyed homes, out of respect to homeowners. News directors have noted the sensitivity of the issue, but have turned down the request, the Denver Post reports:

“This is not the time for that kind of fight,” Harris said.
The Denver Westword reports that Cassimy’s recently-posted online bio included a picture of the anchor and Brown (right), who pleaded guilty in 2009 to assaulting his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna. In an email received by the Westward, one viewer writes: “WTF is Channel 4 thinking? Why would they allow THAT photo to be on their website? What if the dude was an OJ fan?
