TWC hires new Hurricane Specialist Dr. Greg Postel

I tuned into TWC for the first time in a while and caught them announcing this during the Tropical Update. He starts tomorrow morning (August 5th).

I thought he looked familiar!!! He was a fill-in meteorologist at KTKA-TV here in Topeka, as well. For a while the same company that owned 6 News Lawrence (a cable-only, low viewed station that was only available in Douglas County, KS) also owned KTKA (ABC). So while they were in a very bad slump of revolving door personalities they had him fill in as morning or weekend meteorologist sometimes.

First appearance on the show WCL, not first time appearance altogether.

He seems to know his stuff and to be very good on camera. I think they got a 'keeper'. At least, let's hope so.   :biggrin:
