KSTP Airs Meteorologist’s Skin Cancer Surgery

Longtime KSTP chief meteorologist Dave Dahl invited cameras into the operating room as he underwent surgery to remove spots on his chest and leg that had been diagnosed as non-melanoma skin cancer.

Dahl, whose career has been dedicated to keeping viewers informed about potentially dangerous weather, used his skin cancer surgery as an opportunity to raise awareness about the dangers of sun exposure.

“It’s scary,” Dahl told reporter Joe Mazan. “It’s just one of those things like, ‘Wow.’ You never thought it would happen to you” (video inside).
