Longtime Birmingham Meteorologist Takes a Turn as Sports Anchor

By Kevin Eck Comment

James Spann, chief meteorologist for Birmingham, AL, ABC duopoly ABC 33/40, sat in on the sports desk for Mike Raita.

His report didn’t lack for opinion, which TVSpy can only speculate is what prompted the disclaimer by 10:00 p.m. anchor Dave Baird, “The following sportscast does not reflect the views or opinions of the ABC 33/40 sports department or any anchor at this desk.”

Spann, who has over 35 years experience as a TV weatherman and has worked at ABC 33/40 since its inception in 1996 told viewers, “They need another bald headed older guy to do sports. Here I am.”
