It's been nine years since viewers saw meteorologist Bart Adrian on FOX6, the station he called home for 28 years. He's not retired, though. Now, Adrian is a senior lecturer in Atmospheric Science and Mathematics, and a STEM outreach specialist at UW-Milwaukee.
FOX6 announced today that veteran sports anchor Tom Pipines will retire in February after 32 years at the station. Pipines marks the third big name - after Vince Condella and Katrina Cravy - to retire from FOX6 in the past year.
It's been a long while since we interviewed FOX6 meteorologist Vince Condella for a personal profile, but with the long-time weather man's upcoming retirement, it was time to catch up.
As we trudge through another winter, thinking we've got it the worst - and we hear about it the most on TV - industry insiders say that's not quite right. Everyone, everywhere complains about their city's weather and its weather coverage. Yet for the most part, every TV station reports on it the same way. Here's an in-depth look at the changing face of Milwaukee weather.
Welcome to Severe Weather Awareness Week in Wisconsin. Media outlets throughout the state will be reporting on what to do in a weather emergency, culminating with a tornado drill on Thursday at 1:45 p.m.
Now that the snow has stopped and the wind died down, Channel 6 can focus on the Super Bowl ... Jim Cantore gets all excited about our weather ... The return of "Beavis and Butt-Head" ... Anderson Cooper becomes a target in Cairo.
Departing Channel 6 weather guy Bart Adrian will remain until October, as the Fox station hires a replacement.
Veteran weathercaster Bart Adrian is leaving Channel 6 after nearly three decades.
It's actually a good time to end "Ugly Betty" ... Conan's tweets hit at least one Milwaukee billboard ... "South Park" airs its 200th episode.
There are upsides and downsides to living so close to the nation's third-largest radio market -- and lessons for Milwaukee radio ... Vince Condella says "no" to the pro-mustache crowd ... Did Tina Fey's naughty teacher sketch go too far?
Most normal TV will be pre-empted from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight for an international fundraiser to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti... A funny moment on Channel 6's 6 p.m. news... and Air America finally goes silent.
All the TV hype aside, you know a couple days ago that Thursday's snow was coming, thanks to the weathercasters ... And there's a big change coming for Jay Leno on NBC, only it's not clear what that change will be.
It wasn't much of a snowfall for Wisconsin in December, but it was the first to come during the morning rush hour, and two of Milwaukee's four TV news outlets started early to cover it.... Ted Perry takes on HD news... And a younger, and not quite so funny, Tina Fey.
Our question today comes from Dave in St. Francis, who asks: "I've heard a few weather guys predict that we're going to have a milder winter this year. What makes them think that?" Realizing that this question is a bit out of our league, we asked local TV weathermen -- Mark Baden of Channel 12, Vince Condella of Fox 6 and Craig Koplien of Channel 4 -- and asked for help.
Last week in OMC's exclusive "Sunday Sound-off" column we asked if you thought Wisco winters had changed over the decades. Your responses were unanimously "yes," and Fox 6's Vince Condella elaborates.
