Let’s see, how can we do weather differently today?

By Steve Outing

Kudos to DailyCamera.com (Boulder, CO) for adding a little creativity to what usually is a dull daily weather-forecast standup. (That’s Camera film critic Jeanine Fritz doing the weather.)

Here’s another thought to mix it up: Grab a random and interesting looking person off the street and ask them to read the weather forecast from your script. Call it citizen meteorology. :)

    Thanks for the kudos, Steve! We’re actually trying a bunch of different personalities and situations while our regular weather guy is out on vacation. It’s nice to hear some feedback. Love the citizen meteorology idea.

    “Different personalities”? Local celebs, politicians, athletes, NOAA scientists, etc. That’d be fun!

    Or go way outside the box: Let an advertiser do the weather, combined with a tail-end promotional shoutout for his/her business.
