Why are so many weathermen gay?
|by Just musing||reply 72||03/27/2014|
I will tell you that all the weathermen in Chicago are balding fat asses.

|by Just musing||reply 2||04/10/2012|
Andy Avalos is not fat!

Because doing the weather is manufacturing faux drama out of ordinary natural phenomena. Perfect for them.

They don't do a lot of "work," they get to wear fantastic clothes, and get their ego stroked during stupid personal appeariences.

Only in America! In Holland they're all depressingly straight family men.

Here in South Florida, most of the TV meteorologists are women.
|by Just musing||reply 7||04/10/2012|
I've always wondered this also.
|by Just musing||reply 8||04/10/2012|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 11||04/10/2012|
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.)
|by Just musing||reply 12||04/10/2012|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 15||04/10/2012|
Back in the 90s, I remember there were a lot of cute, young weathermen on the Weather Channel.
|by Just musing||reply 16||04/10/2012|
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)
|by Just musing||reply 17||04/10/2012|
Former BBC weathergay Tomasz Schafernaker even appeared in a gay magazine in a state of undress, while still under contract.
|by Just musing||reply 18||04/10/2012|
Weather Channel's former winter weather expert was gay but low key. Not sure where he is today.
|by Just musing||reply 19||04/10/2012|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 20||04/10/2012|
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!"
|by Just musing||reply 21||04/10/2012|
R3, get a new pair of glasses. You probably get all wet for Jerry Taft.
|by Just musing||reply 22||04/10/2012|
Too many viewings of this video as young gaylings.

... and how could we ever forget ' Cockroach meets Weatherman?'
|by Just musing||reply 24||04/10/2012|
R1, you must be referring to Tom Skilling, who is balding and paunchy. And also a closeted gay. Unless you can think of another reason why a late fiftysomething man lives with two male "roommates."

Not sure, but I'm glad this one is. I spent an evening with him and he was handsome, had an awesome physique, and was a nice guy.
|by Just musing||reply 27||04/10/2012|
They were deeply moved by the Wizard of Oz.
|by Just musing||reply 28||04/10/2012|
R10 is a winner
|by Just musing||reply 29||04/10/2012|
Yes, but did you FUCK HIM, R27?
|by Just musing||reply 30||04/10/2012|
Last year we had a thread about a weather guy who woke up naked in his hottub with his arms around a dead guy. Anyone remember that?
|by Just musing||reply 31||04/10/2012|
R30 We did spend the night together....in bed. He was better looking than his picture btw.
|by Just musing||reply 32||04/10/2012|
The weathermen are gay because stations prefer not to have their gays as the news anchor. So to be inclusive, the stations stick the weathermen on for five minutes at the end of the show.
|by Just musing||reply 33||04/10/2012|
Does this mean Al Roker is gay. And I doubted my pingo'meter
|by Just musing||reply 34||04/10/2012|
R34 Al is queer and questioning.
|by Just musing||reply 35||04/10/2012|
Anyone know about that new guy in the Detroit area, Keenan or something? He pings.
|by Just musing||reply 36||04/10/2012|
(R35). Hmm, could this be the much talked about Matt Laurer affair? And everybody thought it was Natalie Morales, Savannah Guthrie, the chick in Canada, etc.

We won't. LOL

I have such a crush on Weatherman Tucker Barnes from the Washington DC area local Fox 5 Morning News. He's adorable and has such an adorably sexy voice.
|by Just musing||reply 39||04/11/2012|
Any scoop on Fox 5 NY weatherman Mike Woods? He sets my ping-o meter off.
I used to see ABC's weatherman Sam Champion at this gay club on Sunday afternoons.
|by Just musing||reply 40||04/11/2012|
I thought I'd heard Mike Woods is gay. There was a FOX 5 TV promo a few years ago that had all the personalities dancing on a pier and Woods REALLY got into it.
|by Just musing||reply 41||04/11/2012|
They're all gay because they're all married to hairdressers.

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.
|by Just musing||reply 45||04/11/2012|
r43 is always late for the party.
|by Just musing||reply 46||04/11/2012|
Mike Woods is tres tres gay, R41.
Within the industry, it's no secret.
|by Just musing||reply 47||04/11/2012|
Why isn't r4 on W&W? Funniest thing on here in a while.
|by Just musing||reply 48||04/12/2012|
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."
|by Just musing||reply 49||04/12/2012|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 50||04/12/2012|
Cute gay Scottish weatherman in tight shirt.

[quote]Here in CT, the CBS station has 3 weathergays
Whose the third one? Mike? I've been wondering about OP's question ever since I noticed how many "weathergays" we seem to have here in CT.
|by Just musing||reply 52||06/29/2013|
Austin STILL has a lot of local gay weathermen. I know 3 personally.
|by Just musing||reply 53||06/29/2013|
I wonder what happened to Tony Williams. He was DC's Weathergay for a number of years, then moved out to LA to be their Weathergay.
But he has pretty much disappeared since losing a job in LA (IIRC).
|by Just musing||reply 54||06/29/2013|
I wonder if Tex Antoine was gay?
|by Just musing||reply 55||06/29/2013|
I like me some Brooks Garner. He's in Houston now. He has a daughter so he's probably straight.
|by Just musing||reply 56||10/10/2013|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 57||10/10/2013|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 58||10/10/2013|
WHET the weathergay who quit to do gay porn? Steve something ...
|by Just musing||reply 59||10/10/2013|
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.

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.
|by Just musing||reply 66||10/11/2013|
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.
|by Just musing||reply 67||10/11/2013|
R61, I would be astonished if Rod Hill weren't gay. He probably just keeps a low profile.
|by Just musing||reply 68||10/11/2013|
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.

This is one of our local weathermen, Dave Nussbaum. I can't believe he's married to a woman.
