KRON hires rapping weatherman
An Akron, Ohio, meteorologist and DJ, who gained fame on Youtube as the "Rapping Weatherman" is headed to KRON 4. But KRON general manager Brian Greif said he hired Nick Kosir for his skills as a weather anchor, not a rapper.
"He's very good on-air. He has a good personality -- without having to rap. He knows weather. He's proven himself to be very flexible." Greif told the SF Weekly.
Media blogger Rich Lieberman, who first reported the story about KRON hiring Kosir, also said that KRON weather anchor Evelyn Taft is "currently looking for high-pressure systems in LA and trying to become the next weather version of Megyn Kelley."
