A Pete Delkus Update
There's a terrific story about Pete Delkus by Ed Bark, former Dallas Morning News TV critic, on his site, http://unclebarky.com/ Someone posted the link on a different post today, but I wanted to make it a separate blog so folks could easily see it.
In the story, Delkus tells Bark that Channel 9 counter-offered his 2005 Dallas deal by offering him a lifetime contract here. All he told me in April '05 was that Channel 9 had made him a generous counter-offer that made his decision to leave Cincinnati more difficult. (He was completing the first year of a 7-year contract signed in 2004. The fine print allowed him to leave for only three cities: Chicago, Dallas or his hometown of St. Louis.)
Bark wrote a great story. Delkus fans will enjoy it.
Anyone still miss Pete? How does he rank among your all-time favorite Cincinnati forecasters? Top 5? Who's your No. 1 favorite forecaster? (Ira Joe Fisher? Tony Sands? Joe "Doogie Howser" Lizura? Todd Hunter? Tim Hedrick?)
Bonus points to the person who can name the most Channel 5 weathermen.
