Podcast #320 – The Inspiring Story of the Legendary Fritz Coleman

Weatherman to Podcaster: The Inspiring Story of the Legendary Fritz Coleman [Podcast]Description:

On this episode, I’m talking with the legendary Fritz Coleman who went from being the weathercaster for NBC in Los Angeles from 1982 to 2020 to co-hosting Media Path Podcast with Louise Palanker in 2020. Fritz has an inspiring story to inform that you’ll want to hear.

That is from his Wikipedia web page:

After rising up in Radnor, Pennsylvania, he attended Salem College in West Virginia and Temple College in Philadelphia the place he studied radio, tv, and movie. Like many well-liked climate anchors, he serves as a reporter as an alternative of a meteorologist since he doesn’t have a level in meteorology.

He labored as a comic and disc jockey for a number of years and as radio character “Jay Fredericks” at WBEN and later WKBW in Buffalo, New York. He left Buffalo for Los Angeles in 1980 to work as a stand-up comedian. In 1982, he started work as a weekend weatherman at KNBC and have become the weekday weatherman in 1984. He additionally hosted or appeared on a variety of different KNBC exhibits, similar to “It’s Fritz” (1988-1990) and “What a Week” (1990 – 1991).

He has written and carried out two one-man theater acts, titled The Reception and It’s Me! Dad! He acquired the 2004 EMA Group Service Award for his involvement with KNBC’s 4 Our Planet, a youngsters’s program. He appeared in a supporting position in one in all Raymond Burr’s final Perry Mason tv movies, The Case of the Telltale Speak Present Host, in 1993.

He acquired a “thanks” credit score on the movie Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Misplaced Film, an “alternate movie” companion to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

From 2009 to 2011, Coleman additionally did the weekday climate (along with KNBC) for San Diego’s NBC affiliate, KNSD.

On June 17, 2020, Coleman introduced that he would retire on Friday, June 26 after virtually 40 years at KNBC.

I believe one can find Fritz’s story fairly entertaining and extra importantly inspiring.
