Dan Skeldon has become one of my favorite people on 69 News.  He handled over an hour of tornado warnings yesterday with ease and kept calm, yet kind of excited in a way, with clear explanations of what we're seeing on the radar and also what a warning means vs. a watch.  Also, and maybe this is a weird way to judge people, but I know he did the weather in South Jersey for so long, but he's learned the geography of the Lehigh Valley really well in naming various locations on maps even when they're not labeled.  I think I like him better than I ever did Ed Hanna!

Started watching 69 News at 4 late today. Did they explain what is going on in their studio?  Lighting issues, no green screen for weather, no cam in traffic center,  background noises, etc.

Jim V just said there were problems, but didn't elaborate.

WOW!  Jamie Stover did stay longer than I expected.  Unlike WFMZ anchors and meteorologists/weather people who make a career here - reporters seem to come and go quickly, at least the good ones that is.  Jamie was clearly one of the best.  Best of Luck to her! 

 

On a side note -  this week marked the retirement of former WFMZ anchor David Murphy at WPVI.  Best Wishes to him, as well.

Jamie Stover posted on Facebook that she is leaving on Monday, but she is staying in the area.  Just trying something new.  Wonder what it is?

My guess: she joins the burgeoning community of real estate agents. Happened to two couples I or people I know have known and loved: Curt and Dee Miller formerly of Curt's Cyclery, whose closing was reported last month on 69News; and Tim and Hala Bonner, who operated the Taza (Eat Egyptian!) food truck and, briefly, a stand in the Easton Public Market.

The Lehigh Valley is one hot market.
