Title: Alexandra Steele No Longer with TWC
Post by: TWCToday on October 02, 2010, 03:04:49 AM
I have it on good authority from sources at The Weather Channel that Alexandra Steele is no longer appearing on The Weather Channel. Very little information is being released internally but it appears legal action is likely by both parties.

I once told someone on this forum that I disagreed that Alex was likely laid off. I was wrong, therefore I take it back.

This is indeed devastating. I know many of you guys are huge fans of Alexandra, including Victor and Tiffany. She was also one of my favorites. I wish her all the best in what comes to her.

The network knows best because they know "everyone loves blondes with big boobs." :rolleyes:

Those bastards, they didn't even bother saying anything about it, They just let Alex disappear out of nowhere.  <_< What's even worse is they put so much emphasis into the whole "Cantore and Steele" duo thing. (sighs) Oh well I will miss her. :itsok:

I bet you that internally, the whole "Cantore and Steele" thing (which I loved btw) was one of those "last chance" things and did the classic "not renewing the contract" deals.

DEAR TWC,
I WOULD LIKE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING OCMs TO BE BACK ON TWC....BILL KENEELY, ALEXANDRA STEELE, BETTY DAVIS, AND ALL OF THE OTHER GREAT OCMs THAT YOU HAVE "LET GO" AND REPLACED WITH THESE NEW OCMs THAT HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH TWC. COPY AND PASTE THIS IF YOU AGREE!

:facepalm: <<this seems to be the emotion fo this type of situation..
You're waisting your time!  How many times does it have to be said;  They are gone for good.  No amount of e-mails complaining about TWC changing in general is not going to change a thing. 

I agree with Jesse, it seems the network wants the blondes with a body, or at least a younger croud.  While I have no problem with that (as long as they know their weather), it's sad to see these knowledgable, personable meteorologists leave the network.  While I was not a fan of Alexandra, at all, it is still sad to see her 'let go,' I don't wish that upon anyone.

I really don't think we should speculate who's next to go. :no:  In some way, I think that is disrespectful to that OCM.

No offense, but what does her on air proposal have to do with her chances of not having her contract renewed? Both of them would be at the same risk. I only said Kim as a joke because she had blond hair up until the last year and half.

Any News Anchor, Meteorologist, Sports Person, etc... should NOT be discriminated against due to their sex appeal, but rather on their knowledge and experience on the subject. There probably are some extremely knowledgable women with a meteorology degree that are just not getting hired because they don't have adaquate "boobs".

Post by: Localonthe8s on October 02, 2010, 11:03:59 AM
I am deeply upset, but not surprised that Alex was let go. Even though I haven't watched Twc outside of LOT8's for a good while now, I would ocassionaly see Alex on PM Edition. The fact that she wasn't seen on the network and the news that a new pair would host PM Edition aroused     my suspicion  that she was let go. I wish the best of luck for Alex as her personality was one that could not be seen anywhere else on TWC (always smiling, positive, upbeat, ready to engage the viewer). This news just bites the dust and now I really don't know how Tiffany will react to this because Alex was th lifeblood of TWC for her. :(

Unfortunately, I had a feeling that she was let go when Crystal showed up on Weather Center. That's too bad--I really liked her, and many of you guys did too. As long as she can find work somewhere else--which I'm almost certain she will--that's all that really matters. I'll miss her though.

Clearly it was official when she started working. I'm afraid you were right.

The rate of OCM layoffs is getting to be real annoying, especially when some get a formal "goodbye" while others just tend to disappear. <_<

I'm sorry to see her go, and I hope she does well in a new job.  Sadly, it's life these days in broadcasting Meteorology.  It really is that unstable, and that's why I was told to avoid it.

Just as I never want to be in broadcasting. They exaggerate everything...and I'd never do that. I'd rather be in an off-camera position and definitely not be at TWC.

Post by: Eric on October 02, 2010, 06:17:51 PM
At this rate, The Weather Channel's OCMs will be fresh out of college, the ink on their diplomas barely dry.  The network seems to be saying that the people with experience can work behind the scenes, so long as they don't have enough seniority to actually make a decent amount in payroll, and the on-camera folk must be young, perky, and attractive, and who cares about anything else.

I just had a thought - in this day and age, probably even the great John Hope would have faced the chopping block by now and have been fired, or had his contract "not renewed."  That's how bad I think things have gotten.

Guys, this news is such a shock to me. I just got on here and noticed the title of the topic.
Alex will surely be missed by me personally because she was the reason why I watched the channel and everything in between. I can't believe that they would do something like this to her.
Today was her daughter's 2nd birthday and everything. I'm just so sad right now after reading this information on the site here. :cry3: :cry3: :cry3: :cry3: :cry3: :cry3: :cry3:

JUST TO NOTE, THIS IS THE FINAL TIME THAT I WILL WATCH THE NETWORK EVER, EXCLUDING THE MUSIC AND SMOOTH JAZZ PART. BUT AS FAR AS THE OCMs AND THE SHOWS, I WON'T. :no: :cry3: :cry3: :cry3: :no:

Hey man, I know how you feel because she was my favorite OCM as well. I remember watching her on Evening Edition and back in the older days on YWT as a morning meteorologist. And, it's goodbye TWC for me as well. The only thing that I will watch is the music and that's it. NOTHING ELSE!!!!!

The only two things this network has in common with its past are its name and the local forecasts.  I just want to scream my lungs out at how The Weather Channel has gone so far downhill from where it once was.  Honestly, NBC would have done better keeping WeatherPlus and shutting down The Weather Channel, at least allowing TWC to keep some glory and dignity.

I'm glad I recorded a video of WC with her in it. "So the man behind all those bleeps was…"


Something's wrong with TWC and NBCU. I've been watching TWC since 2004, and I think those days may be over soon. This is another of TWC's big mistakes, along with the 2005 relaunch, the HD relaunch, and the NBC buyout.

Yeah I'm only watching it for the local on the 8s now..I've been watching my local news a lot more in the last year or so,but I've still been watching Weather Center to watch Alexandra. But that all just ended. I will only watch TWC for my local on the 8s info that I can't get on the internet or by local news. Before you know it,people like Heather Tesch,Jen Carfagno,Kelly Cass,and Adam Berg will be laid off. Why?!? Because the newbies come in and take over. Congrats,TWC! You've screwed up the network!

I think the network should've thought twice about merging with NBC because now everything is messed up, even the programming.

Alexandra was the best and my favorite, along with Jim Cantore, and who knows when the ax will fall on him.  I only watch TWC, other than Local on the 8s, when either of them are on, so I will miss Alexandra.  She is a class act and if she chooses to continue her career, she definitely won't have any trouble finding a job somewhere else.  I'm sure another channel would be elated to have her.  And, with her gone, that means even less time watching TWC for me.

I've noticed The Weather Channel has been timings its dismissals around anniversaries, etc.  Are they deliberately trying to rub salt into the wounds they've inflicted?
I think it is more "September 30", "October 1" kind of thing.  I had no idea this happened.  I thought she might have been on vacation or something.  It's puzzling to me that they bring in somebody new to replace her position like that - one would think that they would have a "veteran" OCM fill-in until a suitable replacement could be found. 

Sadly, this may continue as long as the economy is as bad as it is.  If money is not coming in, they aren't going to be able to support all of the salaries.  There are likely people behind-the-scenes affected as well, I'd bet.

That is terrible that they just did that to her out of nowhere. They're going to go up there and replace her with "CRYSTAL EGGER". Like I said, and will always say, these new ones need to go somewhere and do something with themselves.

I wonder if Alexandra already knew she was going to go when she did that Tomorrow's Talker segment? Yes, Alex, we've all seen that video. ;) Although I don't think her "let go" was a result of THAT, I do think that she couldn't have cared less what she said because she knew she was going to be gone anyway.

According to my source, there are two specific OCMs that are being "looked at" but nothing is set in stone. And before you go asking or PMing me on who, I will not tell you who they are, as it's confidential information.

I know you posted this days ago, but now that I think about it, I'm a little concerned about Nicole, although I don't watch TWC that much in the evenings now, I haven't seen her on WC in a long time. I hope my suspicions are wrong and I'm just being paranoid, but considering Alex's firing came out of the blue, I have to wonder if Nicole could receive the same treatment.  :(

I know you posted this days ago, but now that I think about it, I'm a little concerned about Nicole, although I don't watch TWC that much in the evenings now, I haven't seen her on WC in a long time. I hope my suspicions are wrong and I'm just being paranoid, but considering Alex's firing came out of the blue, I have to wonder if Nicole could receive the same treatment.  :(

She's been out on military duty.

Oh ok, good so I was just being paranoid.  :P

Yes, she was on Military, then she usually gets a few days vacation after. She doesn't seem very likely to be fired/let go, she and Paul do a great job on WC. Although....Alex did a great job too then out of the blue she was fired.

Let me ask, how many hours are there On air Meteorologists on anyway any more? All you see are taped shows.

Twitter today has Carl and Heather doing 2 shifts on weekends now, who does that elimininate?

their shifts are usually 8 hours, which consist of 3-4 hours on air, 4-5 behind the scenes.

Tell you the truth, there was no telling because when Jim had gotten the divorce, him and Alexandra were all over each other. And, plus there's no telling if he was cheating on his wife with her or not. That's just my opinion. But, him and Alex had something going outside of the studios I bet because she had this habit of touching him all the time and flirting with him right on air.  :dunno: :yes:

Yes, I remember sometimes when Jim said something funny, Alexandra would laugh, flirt, and touch his arm... :P

Nicole's comment on Facebook is concerning, too.
I don't think so. She is safe. Her position as a hurricane hunter is pushed big by TWC. More than likely she will leave on her own when she gets a high paying job. I know she has been increasing her education recently. Its not a matter of if but when she leaves.

And, the first night that Eric Fisher was on air, she flirted with him as well calling him and Chris "two hot hunks".

Ok so I was just going through Egger's Facebook reading comments, and found something interesting. She says a few times "filling in" on Weather Center, long after we started speculating Alex was let go.

On October 12 @ 6:10pm, she commented on a wall post and said "...back to filling in on nights today-Friday"
On October 12 at 6:14pm, she commented on a wall post and said "...I'm filling in on the night shows this week, Tuesday-Friday. 7 to 10pm eastern"

Also, someone posted and asked if Egger knocked Alex out of the line up, and Egger responded and said "Hi John, I'm just filling in where I'm needed. I'll be on Day Planner with Samantha Mohr on Monday."

Interesting. :blink: I still think Alex is no longer at TWC because we haven't seen her in awhile, and I guess maybe Crystal wouldn't be told that she is replacing someone...IDK.

I guess Crystal is just a "floater" OCM for now; like she said, she'll be on whenever they need someone to "fill in."

Yeah, don't ever trust the bio pages to determine if an OCM is or is not still at TWC. ;)

And I'm not sure why "Cantore and Steele" hasn't been changed but again, TWC probably tends to forget about these less important things and hasn't thought to change the name.

I for one will not miss Alexandra one bit.

She was a horrible interviewer, in my opinion...asking questions about things Julie or the on-site meteorologists have already covered.

I'm not crazy about Crystal either....she seems to be the younger version of Alexandra...with her presentation and looks.

Sometimes years too. For example, Rick Griffin and Marny Stanier's profiles were still on weather.com's server until the old television page became a redirect to the new weather.com/tv site in early 2009 (they both left in 2003). :wacko:

I came to this site because I was wondering what happened to her......I do recall an evening, shortly after the new guy Chris started, when I thought Alexandra was being way too fresh with him (Chris) and causing him some embarrassment or to be uncomfortable on the air........So did she get fired or did she just leave on her own?  Does anyone really know?  Just curious.

She was let go, as in "We can't keep you anymore." She never left on her own choice.

i'm still not convinced that she is gone. 1) we don't have a reliable source that can disclose such information, 2) Cantore and Steele on facebook is still being updated (which makes no sense, why continue to name the page after a meteorologist whom is no longer on the network, when you can simply rename it), 3) her bio is still on weather.com...most meteorologist "let go" or "fired" are usually taken off the weather.com website immediately.

as for most of the responses "the bios don't come off right away" i call bull on that, there is no way of telling.

Maybe for some OCMs, but not all, I stated this in the Betty Davis thread, but her bio was still up last month, 3 months after she left in July and she was let go/contract not renewed and it's still up as of today.  :blink:

i'm still not convinced that she is gone. 1) we don't have a reliable source that can disclose such information, 2) Cantore and Steele on facebook is still being updated (which makes no sense, why continue to name the page after a meteorologist whom is no longer on the network, when you can simply rename it), 3) her bio is still on weather.com...most meteorologist "let go" or "fired" are usually taken off the weather.com website immediately.

as for most of the responses "the bios don't come off right away" i call bull on that, there is no way of telling.

We haven't seen her in over a month, Al...if she's not gone, then where do you think she is? :blink: A month long vacation? I highly doubt it.

It is weird that a Facebook page with Cantore & Steele is still updated. As for the bios, I'm with everyone else, TWC is not good at keeping them updated, so I wouldn't use that as a soure. :no:

I watch TWC all the time, my husband is a farmer........That is when they don't have some stupid other show/re-run airing..... However, I don't recall the video or segment that everyone is referring to on this thread regarding Alexandrea Steele. I came to this site because I was wondering what happened to her......I do recall an evening, shortly after the new guy Chris started, when I thought Alexandra was being way too fresh with him (Chris) and causing him some embarrassment or to be uncomfortable on the air........So did she get fired or did she just leave on her own?  Does anyone really know?  Just curious.

She was let go, as in "We can't keep you anymore." She never left on her own choice.

And no, She was never "too fresh" with Chris Warren.

Actually, nobody knows what went on behind the scenes with these people.
And, there's absolutely no telling if she was getting fresh with him or not because she used to always do it when her and Jim were on-air together.

Post by: Thecoolwriter on November 09, 2010, 07:50:27 PM
The only other option is that she was involved in an accident or other event, à la Jeannetta Jones, that is preventing her from working.

However, I doubt it's anything other than her contract not being renewed.

Wow, I hope and pray that's not what happened because that would be devastating. But, nobody knows like I said.
I truly think about her sometimes and wonder if she's okay and stuff like that. It's just A feeling that comes through my mind when I sleep at night. I tend to think about people when they leave and never come back. It's just one of those moments where I tend to feel really good and get cheered up.

I appreciate a lot of you looking on the bright side about Alex still being at TWC, but I'm confused why this is still being debated. :blink: On all of the other OCM layoff topics at this forum, Martin or Jesse posted that a certain OCM was laid off and that was it. Martin did the exact same for this topic, so I don't understand what the controversy is. :wacko: I know a lot us liked Alex and wish she was still a TWC OCM, but it's time to face that facts that she's probably gone.

I don't really see why she would make a statement. No other OCMs have. In fact I imagine she enjoys being left alone for a while. Seriously have you seen some of the creeps who post on her facebook page? What is wrong with some of the people in this world. Its sickening  :wacko:

Yes, I have seen some of those creeps that post on the OCM pages.  I went to Nicole Mitchel's page, and I was shocked at the comments being said, most from older men.  I guess it's the price you have to pay being in the spotligh.  I guess you have to simply ignore it.

Title: Re: Re: Alexandra Steele Let Go
Post by: TWCToday on November 12, 2010, 01:09:05 AM
Interesting...  here is the case I was referring to
Quote
From the NY Post in 2005/2006

A storm of controversy has engulfed The Weather
Channel, after a 40-something former anchor accused
network brass of washing her out of a high-ranking job
to make way for a hot front of sexy young
weatherwomen.

Marny Stanier Midkiff, 42, this week filed a lawsuit
claiming she was booted in the fall of 2003 as part of
a reputed "reorganization" of the storm channel, which
she believes was really an excuse to get more young
female weathercasters on the air.

Midkiff says that, in the months before she was let
go, her boss allegedly spoke of female staffers as
"matronly," "dowdy" and "nun-like" and asked that
female on-air talent turn up the temperature on their
look with more revealing "V-neck" shirts.

Midkiff and her attorney claim The Weather Channel
also began hiring new young weathercasters starting in
2003 as part of this effort, and the then-41-year-old,
who spent 16 years reporting on sun and rain for the
network, was left out in the cold.

"She got tossed aside because The Weather Channel
wanted a younger look," said Midkiff's attorney,
Daniel Klein. "She was one of the top
[meteorologists]. She was one of the best they had,
but she didn't fit the image they had in mind."

He said hires such as weathercasters Alexandra Steele
and Nicole Mitchell are among those who demonstrate
this trend. Klein's office also provided a picture of
what was called the "new look" of the channelF, in
which recently hired meteorologists wear
hotter-looking low-cut blouses.



According to Midkiff's suit, filed in Atlanta federal
court, the forecast looked sunny for the veteran
meteorologist in early 2003 as she was promoted to be
a high-level manager of the other on-air talent, in
addition to her regular duties reading the weather on
air.

But Midkiff claims her boss, programming chief Terry
Connelly, was becoming convinced the older look of the
staff was costing The Weather Channel viewers.

The network declined to comment on the allegations
because of pending litigation. But Midkiff claims the
first major step Connelly took was to hire an image
consultant.

"Connelly openly expressed animosity toward older
female [meteorologists]," the suit says. "He spoke
freely of his goal to 'young up' The Weather Channel.

"At one point, Connelly announced, 'We're old and we
can't be . . . Our ratings are going down.' "

The worst for Midkiff came in August of 2003 when
Connelly held an "open forum" in which he said viewers
thought the network's female weathercasters looked too
old.

This whole fiasco is happening throughout the news world (local/regional but with no lawsuits such as big as this if there is any confirmed) so i don't really seem that surprised they made a move like this <_<

Anything to attract viewership (younger & attractive meteorologist) to younger anchors/reporters/sportscasters the game is $$$ thats what this day in age of media boils down to.
I hate to say it but you're right. When people tune into tv (myself included), they'd rather see a smoking, hot, young girl rather than a old, saggy, wrinkly woman (not that Alex was any of those things). It's just the facts. Younger personalities recruits younger viewers, which boosts ad sales. Quite sad, but true.

I think the bottom line is Alex was a great OCM. I wasn't a huge fan of her during her stunt on YWT, but once she returned from maternity leave and moved to the evening hours, she really grew on me. Her and Jim were the perfect pair, the always worked well together. I fail to see how TWC can justify breaking up a good pair of OCMs for a younger, less personable OCM like Egger. :dunno:

/me finishes sweeping

I took the liberty of cleaning some of the off topic discussions so that members would be more comfortable with keeping this topic active! I want to clarify a few things and make some comments.

In early October it was brought to my attention that Alexandra Steele had most likely been let go. This was also the belief of several of my sources/friends who are familiar with the situation at The Weather Channel. I would like to point out that I would NOT make a topic unless I believed the information I received was factual and accurate. Over time the story has changed a little bit.


Here are the facts:
Alexandra is NOT on vacation leave
Alexandra is NOT on medical leave
Alexandra is NOT currently working at The Weather Channel (meaning on air, behind the scenes, etc)
Alexandra IS in some dispute with The Weather Channel

Yup it's very common, especially among women. A few years ago, a longtime reporter for WPXI, Yolanda Hawkins, departed the station and didn't mention where she was going. Then, a few months later, I was out west, and was watching KCBS, and lone and behold, Yolanda Hawkins was there, with a different name, of Lonni Rivera. I emailed her out of curiosity, and she said the name change was prompted by a few people here in Pittsburgh looking her up and trying to find her (creeps), and see as how LA is a bigger area, there was a greater chance of that happening more often. It's for pure safety.

For those of you familiar with CNET, Natali Morris, formerly Natali del Conte hosts a daily tech show called Loaded. She just recently wrote about how having two names would be difficult in her opinion. http://natalidelconte.squarespace.com/blog/2010/11/14/the-journalist-formerly-known-as-del-conte.html (http://natalidelconte.squarespace.com/blog/2010/11/14/the-journalist-formerly-known-as-del-conte.html)

It's a very different network.  I started regularly watching The Weather Channel in 1988, and it more or less maintained its continuity through the early 2000s.  Since then, though, changes have been taking place at a dizzying pace, and many of these changes have been utterly incomprehensible.

I truly miss the network as it once was.

I hate dragging this thread out, but in my mind Alexandra was not one of the best OCMs, and definitely should not be grouped as one of the old-timers.  She has only been at TWC 5-7 years. Who did they get rid of to bring her in? I'm thinking she was part of the first wave of what TWC has become. I wouldn't include her as part of the past.

You're right.  Two prominent female OCMs from The Weather Channel's past include Marny Stanier and Cheryl Lemke.  Alexandra Steele's career with the network, though rather celebrated until its abrupt end, doesn't compare to the longevity of many of the network's former OCMs, very, very few of whom are still with the network.

Oh, I figured she would come back after her case is closed.. well I hope she can find a job elsewhere although it can be hard finding one when you have been convicted of something.

Are we allowed to know more details on what the case was about (like, was it really about Alexandra's lack of attractiveness), or is that out of the question? :dunno:

There is no evidence yet that there was actually a case. TWC employees suspected there may be one. I never expected Alex to return which is why I published the information. It is possible TWC settled out of court or a case never developed. There is also still a chance that internally the conflict will continue.

 I was surprised to learn of the firing.  I just thoiught you mixed them up once again and I missed her time slot. Personally, I think  she is better off doing weather for some other organization.  The direction in which The Weather Chanel is moving no longer reflects the weather.  Some of TWC "stories" are very far from having anything to do with weather.  If I wanted to see network news, I would watch the network news. Let The Weather Chanel be just that.  Send Al back to the Morning Show and don't do a joint venture here.   Bad move, "Powers That Be"....she was one of the better ones. Bet your ratings go down.

Not necessarily. Changing your availability in some professions is cause for termination, especially in the television industry.
Title: Re: Alexandra Steele Let Go
Post by: wxmediafan on January 12, 2011, 10:55:22 PM
Tyler is correct.

I am thinking that Alexandra asked to go part-time and when NBC said no, Alexandra probably decided to leave, which would cause legal problems because she violated her contract.

When you have a contract you don't have rights. You don't agree to paint a whole house then decide that you will just paint 50% of it.
According to Rich Johnson on his forums, Alex apparently wanted to go part time and NBC wouldn't allow that.
Yes this is also what I was informed of. But my friend couldn't confirm it. As rich mentioned they are being particularly tight lipped on this one.

I imagine it went something like this. Alex wanted to go part time, TWC said no leading to a possible legal battle. You will note TWC employees were explicatively told not to take down her profiles while this was going on.  Leading me to believe TWC intended to make her stay. I would imagine they reached an agreement and settled out of court and Alex ended up getting the boot completely. That would be my best guess on the situation based on the information available.

Alex does has a family. I don't know the age of her child (children?) but I imagine she wants to spend more time with them. With her current schedule she only sees her kids up until around 2pm. If her kids are going to some sort of schooling that means she only sees them until around 8am each weekday. By the time Alex arrives home most likely they are sleeping. Just a thought.

Let go seems to fit. She wanted to work less... TWC no and said bye bye. Some folks objected to the word fired and saying she left doesn't fit the information in my opinion

I understand completely what u are saying.
And if you want to know, Alexandra has a two year old daughter.

When i first heard about NBC purchasing TWC i grew a little suspect as to how this was gonna pan out, as soon as i saw the new meteorologists taking over the 7PM time slot & searched online about what happened to Alexandra i knew this whole thing would be a mistake.

And now with Comcast acquiring NBC it's becoming an even bigger joke consolidation stinks. Good luck where you go Alexandra my best goes out to you and your family.

At least she's not dealing with those crazy people anymore. And, the management team sucks anyway and always will after what they did to her and the previous good OCMs who knew what they were talking about.
I bet Alex is somewhere enjoying life with her daughter and traveling the world with her family and such.

MP4, let me know if it doesn't work an I'll do something about it
Thanks for posting the clip! Wow she is lucky to have gotten to stay in the Atlanta area. It is nice to see her back on. Is it just me or does she look a little different? More makeup?

She does look different in a way. You guys are right about that.

Glad to see her back on television! And yes, I do notice that she looks a little different... It might be more makeup, and maybe some stress?  :unsure:

I think both clips were recorded on the same day because she's wearing the same red dress, but still she looks the same to me in both anyway.

Yeah,she looks really pale. I think maybe that's it. We were used to her being pretty tan and she looks a lot more pale in that video.

I'm disappointed to hear Alexandra is gone. She was smart, funny and very knowledgeable. I think she wore too much white on cam. But she was certainly hot enough, imo.  :hmm:

I thought Alexandra and Dave Schwartz were the wittiest personalities that had. Sorry to see them both gone.

((Ftr, I have no prob with blond + big boobs, but I do expect some sort of personality on cam))

I saw Alex on CNN yesterday as well. They were talking about Halloween costumes. If anyone was listening closely, she said her daughter's name on air yesterday. Remember at TWC, she didn't say her name at all. But, it finally came out yesterday. Random thought....

I remember when she was at TWC, she had said that she had picked out a wacky name when they were referencing names to something (I forgot). But..... DANG!!!!

I'm not surprised. She obviously did not know what she was talking about. Any meteorologists who blames something on climate change without explaining how or why shouldn't be working there because some viewers who truly don't believe in climate change wouldn't like that. Unless if the topic they were discussing is solely for climate change, never bring up climate change like that.
