Epic Throwback Video of Sam Champion Surfaces on National Weatherperson Day

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

It’s National Weatherperson Day. You probably already knew this because the hashtags were popping up across all social media.

In New York City, WABC, the flagship ABC station, did a throwback tribute to morning meteorologist and former Good Morning America weatherman Sam Champion.

The station put together a throwback video that featured Champion during his time in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1986. Champion had brown hair and a mustache—a look the team couldn’t get over. A “bring back the ‘stache'” made it to the traffic report.


Champion, who no longer has a mustache or brown hair, couldn’t quite figure out how they dug up the video.
