“The Media Loves Big Al”
John Coleman has been a TV weatherman in Champaign, Peoria, and Chicago, Illinois; Omaha, Nebraska; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and New York City. He was the original weathercaster on what was then the brand-new ABC network morning program, Good Morning America. He stayed seven years, then founded The Weather Channel, serving as its CEO and president during the startup and its first year of operation. After The Weather Channel he became weather anchor at WCBS-TV in New York and then at WMAQ-TV in Chicago, before moving to Southern California to join the independent television station, KUSI-TV in San Diego, in what he fondly calls his “retirement job.”
