Unorthodox Meteorologist (See YouTube) Mark Mathis Joins KUSI

MarkMathisMark Mathis is returning to the weather beat. KUSI news director Steve Cohen confirms to TVSpy that Mathis is joining the San Diego station Monday, joining Leslie Lopez and David Scott on the weather team.

Mathis is known to regular TVSpy readers for his flamboyant on-air personality. These YouTube videos can attest to that.

He’s also known for several rocky tenures over the last 10 years. In 2011, he spent just a few months at KMAX in Sacramento. Before that he had two stints with WCCB in Charlotte. He’s also worked at KREX in Grand Junction, CO, WFAA in Dallas, and KTBC in Austin. This will be his second go ’round in San Diego having previously worked at KSWB.

Legendary meteorologist John Coleman retired from KUSI in April. Coleman had been in broadcasting for more than 60 years, the last 20 at KUSI.
