Channel 19's New Weatherman

Frank Marzullo from Youngtown's NBC affiliate WFMJ-TV has been hired by Ch. 19 for one of its two weather vacancies. Here's the staff note from Ch. 19 News Director Steve Ackermann late Friday:

"Please join me in welcoming Frank Marzullo to the Fox 19 weather team. Frank will be joining us from WFMJ-TV, the NBC affiliate in Youngtown, Ohio. Prior to working as the morning/noon weathercaster at WFMJ, Frank worked at WTAP-TV in Parkersburg, WSAZ-TV in Charleston/Huntington and worked briefly on the assignment desk of our sister station, WOIO-TV in Cleveland. Frank is a graduate of Youngstown State University and is currently working on his meteorology certifcate through Mississippi State University. We are working quickly to add a third member to our weather team. Once we make that announcement, we'll have a better idea of the specific assignments for each person on the weather team."

Cool! I'm originally from Parkersburg and used to hang out and drink with the TAP crew. This was a few years ago though, so I don't think I knew Frank. Still, always nice to see the hometown get a favorable mention.

I for one am very pleased that CBS has added Joe Mantenga to the cast of Criminal minds to replace Mandy Patinkin. I hate to say this,because I am a fan,but this is not the first time that something like this has happened with him. Good luck to Joe!

To Anon 2:35 p.m.:
Paul Horton announced last week that he's quitting Sept. 30 to go to KPHO-TV in Phoenix. So Fox 19 is still looking for another weather person.

What happened with Mandy Patinkin on Criminal Minds. I am a fan of the show and had not heard he was leaving.

I wonder if Lance McAlister thinks this guy is hot?

Lance thinks anyone is hot, as long as they help him babble about some product he will get for free. Enough already!

What is it with Steve Norris? He can never get the predictions right. Heck he said that it was not going to rain today (Thursday August 16th) and it is raining right now. He never seems ready to do his forecast when they come to him on air. That replacement (Marina Jurica) is better than him. Larry Handley is the Best though then Tim Hedrick.
