Great move by TWC. Norcross was THE MAN in South Florida when Andrew jacked up the area in '92. Don't believe me? Go look up his clips on YouTube.

ANOTHER new OCM? :wacko: I'm not going to make a big fuss about this, though, as it will likely lead to some type of argument. At least TWC is picking GOOD OCMs. :yes:

I tuned into Weather Center a little late, but I think I saw Bryan Norcross in the teaser. Keep your eyes peeled on tonight's show.

I saw him tonight, he was on. I know him best for talking South Florida through Hurricane Andrew in 1992. He, along with the news and sports anchors were in a safe room off the studio, at WTVJ, channel 4, the nbc affiliate in Miami at that time. I like him.  He said, "friends, here is what I want you to do: go get mattresses and bring them to your safe room and after you get there, stay there." He said something like that.

He's a good hurricane specialist. The next John Hope, maybe?

I find it a little funny you say that because it seems like they are trying to make Dr. Knabb and Bryan Norcross the next Steve Lyons and John Hope.

You mean they are trying to make Dr. Rick Knabb the next Dr. Steve Lyons and Bryan Norcross the next John Hope?

Yes, exactly. That's the feeling I get out it, almost like the feeling I had that they were trying to make Mike and Stephanie a younger version of Heather and Marshall. (Well until Steph ended up having to work with Al on his show.  :sick:)

Why does TWC need a hurricane "expert" AND a hurricane "specialist"? :wacko: What is the difference between the two? Bryan was on WC tonight giving an update, but what he did was something Dr. Knabb could easily do, too. :unsure:

Not a new concept for TWC.  They had John Hope and Steve Lyons.

Two is (sometimes) better than one.  From the way it sounds, this Bryan Norcross sounds great, and Dr. Knabb is also.

I didn't realize that John Hope and Steve Lyons ever worked at the same time. I guess this isn't new, then. :thinking:

IIRC, I think Dr. Lyons was hired to be John Hope's successor once Hope left, but yes they did work together from the late 90's to early 00's when Hope died.

I forgot about Hope and Lyons.  It still seems a bit unnecessary though.

I like Dr. Knabb a lot, but he doesn't seem to have the kind of personality that would attract viewers en masse.  And like it or not, it's all about ratings.

Bryan really is a good meteorologist and fits perfectly as an OCM on TWC. Finally NBCU and TWC made ONE good choice.  :P BTW, did Bryan come from a local station owned by NBC? If he did, I can understand even more why TWC picked him up.  :yes:

in regards to having 2 hurricane specialists.. Dr Knabb starts his shift early in the morning. i would like to believe that Norcross starts later in the day to continue any conducive coverage. if there are any big storms out there, the shift would be very very long for just one person. i hope you wouldnt like to come in at 3am and stay until 7pm ;)

another side note, in regards to the hiring/firing/laying off, theres an old quote: its nothing personal, its business.
