Blizzard Bill will now be on 13abc

Blizzard Bill Spencer is moving to 13abc. I thought he was covered under a franchise contract at NBC 24. Why not? The presidential election will ensure there is lots of money flowing this year to the TV stations.

No votes yet

Anyone know why he changed stations? I happen to really like the weathercaster.

A higher rated station means more of it.

I just saw him and he looked strange on 13abc. I think Stan is retiring and they want someone to replace him. Plus it is obvious that 13abc has more money than 24 and can do that. They have been poaching/pilfering/pirating (thanks carty) weather forecasters from many of the other channels (36 and 24).

Tonight they had a little video bio and talked to Bill. He has gotten a bit grayer, but they always change something when they switch channels.

I am so used to him being on 24, it will be weird for a while.

I also just saw the Jamie Farr casino commercial too :)
