I regret to note
that I will not be on KUOW
Weekday in the future. Steve Scher made this decision on Monday,
May 16th. He and his producer Katy Sewall came to this decision
after I talked about another issue (UW admissions) on a show a few
weeks ago. They only want me to give the weather forecast and not
talk about any education issues (e.g., math education or UW
admissions). I told them that although I had no plans for talking
about non-weather topics, I could not guarantee that I never
would. I noted that they allowed other regulars (like Rick
Steves) to talk about other issues (e.g., in his case, pot
legalization). They did not think this is analogous.
Anyway, Weekday is Steve and Katy's program and they want someone who
will stick only to the weather forecast, without the outreach materials
I like to provide. That is, of course, their right.
I will be starting a weather podcast attached to my blog soon and will
consider doing a weather program on another station.
Sorry about this situation. I have enjoyed talking about the weather on
KUOW for the past several years. I will provide more information
on my blog later this week....cliff
