WeatherBrains preview!

On Monday, I will be a guest panelist on “WeatherBrains,” the most listened to weather podcast. It is highly respected by those in the field of Meteorology and those with a love of weather! It originates from Birmingham, Alabama. James Spann, Chief Meteorologist with ABC33/40 in Birmingham is the moderator of the 60-80 minute session. Spann was the one who guided millions to safety during the record-breaking tornado outbreak of April 27th.

I will be talking about how WREX-TV has positioned itself as a leader in weather information across multiple platforms, not limited to our Project: Tornado campaign where we have taught tens of thousands of children about the need for a weather plan, our unique severe weather protocol, the 2011 heat wave, the recent autumn and winter tornadoes, and the success of this very weather blog.

It is quite a privilege to be included on a panel of distinguished Meteorologists and scientists and I hope you have an opportunity to listen! WeatherBrains is taped live Monday evening and will be accessible late Monday night/Tuesday morning.

    Congrats Eric — they’re smart people and they found the right guy. You have really been on the cutting edge for many years of the transformation of traditional “TV meteorology” to the wide ranging multi-platform weather education complex we now enjoy at WREX. I hope you realize that you are truly a leader in your field. And I hope WREX realizes how fortunate they are to have you.

    Indeed, congratulations Eric! WeatherBrains is lucky to have you as a guest and we are truly fortunate to have you as “our” meteorologist! Thanks for all that you do!

    I just watched your weather at 6 and I think that you need to double check how much rain Beloit,WI got. I work up there and I was in down pouring rain from 6:30 until around 8 or so and we have flooding like you wouldn’t believe because it was coming down so hard and so fast. We evcen had a flood advisory posted just for Rock COunty. We got over 2 inches in that time. Sorry but something is being reported wrong.
