Here in South Florida, most of the TV meteorologists are women.
Nance from Delray
I've always wondered this also.
I've always wondered the same thing, OP. Seriously, what are the reasons?
In Austin at one point in the 90s all 4 local news networks had gay weathermen.
For whatever reason, a lot of gay men are fundamentally performers who like attention (yes, I'm generalizing). If you can't act or sing, why not do the weather on TV?
(I think the Weather Channel must weed them out, though, because you don't see many clearly gay guys on the air there.)
R12 Bingo is your name-o. A lot of gay men love performing. I can't think of any gay meteorologist on The Weather Channel. When The Weather Channel was bought by NBC Jeff Ranieri, a gay meteorologist, worked for NBC. He was the senior meteorologist yet The Weather Channel hired Bill Karins and another weather person.
The University of Tennessee offers a course for prospective weather guys leading to AMS approval. The chairman of department is gay. He encourages his favorite boys to go into television and helps them through his contacts.
Back in the 90s, I remember there were a lot of cute, young weathermen on the Weather Channel.
Here in CT, the CBS station has 3 weathergays, NBC has 2, ABC has 1, and FOX has none (though their former chief meteorologist was the gayest of the gays)
Former BBC weathergay Tomasz Schafernaker even appeared in a gay magazine in a state of undress, while still under contract.
Weather Channel's former winter weather expert was gay but low key. Not sure where he is today.
I dont' care if he's gay or straight but I would like to see Jim Cantore do the weather in the nude just once. He's hot enough in a polo shirt to cause me to palpitate.
I think it all goes back to the early days of TV, when you didn't need to know anything scientific to do the weather on TV - it was all about having a pretty face.
In those days, they were "weathergirls" - now they're just "weather gurrrls!"

R3, get a new pair of glasses. You probably get all wet for Jerry Taft.
Too many viewings of this video as young gaylings.
Theres a cute reporter in savannah georgia who is gay
Here in Chicago, we had Stephen Goolsby as weathergay on local channel CLTV. He went on to become porn star Stephen Marks. Now I think he's in DC working in real estate.
r43 is always late for the party.
Mike Woods is tres tres gay, R41.
Within the industry, it's no secret.
Why isn't r4 on W&W? Funniest thing on here in a while.
r41, Mike's former partner is Jim Castillo who was doing weather at station across town. Then went to KOMO in Washington. Here people called him "The Homo at KOMO."
Do any Miami or New Orleans people know anything about David Bernard? He was a cute, baby-faced gay twink in Tulsa early in his career, but I just looked him up, and he's a very handsome man now. He always seemed like a really nice guy, too, and his partner, if there is one, is a lucky man.
Does anyone here who lives in Portland, Or know if KPTV's Wayne Garcia is on the down low?
Not that I'm flattering myself but I think he cruised me twice at Safeway last night.
There was a weathergay in atlanta back in the 80's (?) named Russ Minshew who was busted for soliciting a teenage boy. In was quite the scandal.
WHET the weathergay who quit to do gay porn? Steve something ...
I'm curious about that too, R52.
Scott and Mark - Who is the 3rd? Mike is really the only other option since Bruce has been married a couple of times.
Ryan and Garrett
Not sure on this one
I have always thought that Portland weatherman Rod Hill was gay but no one seems to know. He is a pocket gay.
When "It's Raining Men" for real, they want to be covering the storm.
Here in CT our CBS affiliate has a flaming, embarrassing QUEEN named Scott Haney. Recently, he accidentally ate cat vomit on the air.
Here in Philadelphia, there's Adam Joseph on the ABC affiliate. Cute, cute, CUTE, what a smile. Chris Sower, at the NBC station, is hot, but straight, definitely worth a look though.
I like Scott, R63, and he's out, which is more than you can say for a lot of weathergays.
What's the fucking problem with being effem**ate? It's not an insult to all of us, and you would really think on a GAY site it wouldn't be used as a diss.
R61, I would be astonished if Rod Hill weren't gay. He probably just keeps a low profile.
R27 - Arch???? LOL, what a big nelly. Oh how the "mighty" have fallen. He sure thought he was the party bomb queen of ATL back in the 90s.
Sven Sundgard in mpls.. He's out .
Oh how I loved this posting:
