As part of his new job as WFLD chief meteorologist, Bill Bellis appears on the Soldier Field jumbotron at Bears home games, giving fans a quick weather update.  So far, it hasn’t been going well.

Bears fans have taken to booing Bellis as he delivers his forecast from the sideline.  According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the jeering has been “vigorous.”

“I’ve been in this business 15 years, and you’ve got to have thick skin,” Bellis, who replaced Amy Freeze as WFLD’s weather chief earlier this year, told the Sun-Times. “So when I was told I was going to do this and I’m not some hot female sports sideline reporter, mentally I knew going in that it was going to be a little rough.”
