You know, I know TWC is "hiring" alot of OCMs lately, but I'm satisfied by their choice this time. I mean, BRYAN NORCROSS? I think TWC made a great choice this time. This guy was amazing when I watched his story on Storm Stories back in the day. He became one of my "weather heroes". I really can't wait for Bryan to debut on TWC, now it'll be worth watching this time, especially this hurricane season.  :biggrin:

Give him a chance, you maybe will soon come to like him like the other "newly hired" OCMs

I agree.  We need to give the guy a chance! 

From what Ana and Martin have said, it sounds like this guy is good news.  And Ana is right, the latest hires have been pretty decent for the most part.

I know it upsets a lot of you that old people are leaving and new people are being hired, but you all need to get over TWC hiring new people.  It's business.

There hasn't been a "new" OCM that I liked since like the early 2000's. And yes, I have watched the new OCMs enough to judge them. I understand how these people may be experienced, but TWC is just making excuses for money IMO. It's not about money, it's about the OCMs personality. There was nothing wrong with the OCMs TWC fired/laid off. You know what they say... don't fix what ain't broke.

Well I am sorry you havn't been able to like any of the OCM's hired in a decade.  But it is not about you, or anyone else for that matter.    I know it sounds harsh, but seriously, it's not. 

  It's about viewers in general.  Unforunately, it is about the money.  It's a business. 

I do agree that there was nothing wrong with the OCM's that they fired or layed off (well, at least most of them).  If it was a mistake, TWC will realize it, but what is done is done.

Is this the same Bryan Norcross who did nonstop hurricane weather coverage of Hurricane Andrew from his station's studio basement? If so I think he would make a great addition to TWC as a hurricane specialist. :yes:
