New Face on our Weather Team

Our weekend morning meterologist James Aydelott got married this weekend and is on his honeymoon. Congratulations to James and Robin! And Steve MacLaughlin is in Los Angeles for a special training session for the upcoming Muscular Dystrophy Telethon that he helps host. He and Mike Snyder are both there preparing for the big event on Labor Day. So we were short-handed this weekend. Rebecca Miller worked Saturday night and I am working Sunday night. But we still needed someone to cover the morning shift over the weekend.

Michael Hammer is a recent meteorology graduate from Texas A&M. He now works full-time for an air pollution company in Dallas. But last year he took a course in broadcast meteorology that Becky teaches each year at A&M. And she was impressed by his abilities. So when we needed help this weekend, she suggested Michael. We took a look at his tape and decided he would be a perfect fit.

Michael had never been on television before he made his broadcast debut Saturday morning. He was on again Sunday morning, and will return next weekend as well. After that you probably won’t see him for a while. Michael is not a permanent NBC5 employee. But we hope he will be able to come back and help out whenever we are short-handed in the future. We were very impressed with his on-air debut, and we have received a number of favorable comments from viewers who also thought he had a great start to his broadcasting career.
