For may years,25, I do believe, Joel was KMBC’s weatherman., I reported this in ETC, along with the story in the K.C. Star. What I did not state was that we are different from other regions because we love our on air personalities. Joel is a witty guy, and his wit and intelligence was seen daily. I remember one Christmas Carol sent him a Christmas card. There were these cats lined up to pull Santa’s sleigh, but one cat turns to Santa and commands, ” Enough with the whip, fat man,” and under this the caption read; “Why cats don’t pull Santa’s sleigh.”
That morning, Joel showed the card, and thanked Carol for sending it.
Joel will go on to do something. It is we, the audience, and the station which are the real losers.
