TVSpy has noticed an interesting trend with weather promos in the bustling metropolis of NYC. Last year, WCBS meteorologist Lonnie Quinn got a promo using the CBS-owned stations’ generic country song that urges you to listen to Lonnie.
Now WABC meteorologist Lee Goldberg gets the urban touch with his new promo. The New York ABC-owned station wants you to know he’s the man. And by “the man” we mean the perfectly coiffed and properly bronzed man.
While two promos don’t quite make a trend, TVSpy still wonders what genre WNBC and WNYW will choose for its weather peeps? Jazz? Dubstep? A series of clicks and beeps punctuated by silence and a groan?
Here’s the CBS-owned station in Dallas. It wants you to listen to Larry.
