Hardly doubt that. You just do not watch the right news he is all over the place. I've know him for a long time when he first started out on WGN TV back in Chicago :D Later RJD

I don't recall seeing him on the BBC or my local tv, but even they get it wrong from time to time.
Back in October 1987 a UK weather guy told people, on prime time BBC tv, that there was no need to worry there wasn't a hurricane coming.
Some hours later, thousands of trees felled, total chaos over the country, thousands with no electricity and no roofs etc..........that poor guy has never lived it down.
