Thoughts on Kevin Robinson's Debut

We have a few thoughts about the debut of WLWT-TV 5's new chief meteorologist, Kevin Robinson, on air last night.

First off, we liked the fact that Robinson actually looks into the camera while he is talking. It made us feel like he wasn't ignoring who his true audience was...the people of Cincinnati. Our friend Mike Taylor noted this too.

Second, as we've seen on the weather channel...the man knows his weather. He was very articulate in explaining what was happening last night with the weather pattern and why temperatures warmed between the 6 PM and 11 PM news.

In fact - we have zero complaints about his performance. Our concern is with how WLWT will use him.

Basically, we're hoping they don't do the same thing they did with Derek Beasley in his last year at WLWT... putting Robinson on a split shift.

If we were channel 5 management...and we're not... we'd do whatever we had to to keep Robinson happy....

Amen to the making him happy! This dude could get me into watching the weather part of the newscast.
