Mark the calendar. We’re going to remember this day.
NBC as made a fantastic move in choosing Nate Johnson to fill the newly created position of Director of Weather Operations for the O&O stations. Nate is uniquely qualified. Long-time sufferers of this blog will know that every now and then a good and substantive post pops up, and it was written by Nate (blog stats prove his work to be the most widely read). Nate has both on-air and management weather experience that has been needed at the corporate level for many years. He also acts as a statesman like voice on WeatherBrains and across the NWA and AMS.
Broadcasters pay attention. This is your permission to create similar positions. And move quickly…Nate has a running head start.
