Weatherman kills the radio star.
John Bolaris, as Kyle said this morning, actually offered up one of the more reasonable forecasts. Last night, he trimmed his prediction down to the now-accurate 1-3 inches, and mentioned all along that he didn’t have much confidence in the storm. Still, he predicted EXTREME BOMBOGENESIS CYCLONIC ACTIVITY or something and was wrong. As he said in his column today, “The last of the snow will be ending by noon, with just some leftover flurries — and some egg on the face of us meteorologists.”
So J-Bo took to 97.5 last night to talk about the storm and his downgrade. Angelo Cataldi of course didn’t listen, and this morning he mentioned Bolaris as he screamed for heads and dropped a “Storm of the Century” zinger. Bolaris attempted to call in to “respond and admit it was a bad forecast,” but Cataldi’s producer, presumably Joe Wechter, told Bolaris that Angelo didn’t want him on the air because of something negative he tweeted two and a half years ago. Though considering Philly still hasn’t forgiven Bolaris for the Storm of the Century thing, two-and-a-half years for a Tweet doesn’t seem too unreasonable. Either way, Bolaris is having one hell of a week.
We’ll be sure to tune in………
