Explaining the F-35s Cost and Programmatic Issues
"We are here to talk a bit about the f thirty five fighter jet. The f thirty five gets a lot of our time and attention because it was supposed to be the cornerstone of the us. Air force's fighter fleet and because it was going to really equip the fleets of our allies. And it still will but it's costing the nation a lot of money in it looks like it will continue to do so in the future Last week there was a pretty fiery hearing over on the house. Side of the us congress Lawmakers are really as fired up about the cost of the thirty five as they used to get about the navy's littoral combat ship and several leading lawmakers. Say they only plan to fully fund the air force's request for f thirty five this year so lee. How is that a change in. why are they making it. What was really the tone of those hearings that you went to last week The democratic lawmakers in particular chairman donald norcross. He's the subcommittee chairman for tactical air and land forces from new jersey and democratic member. John gear mindy from california. Were both really angry. In previous years the congress has put in additional f thirty five aircraft over the budget request. But this year. They said that they're are going to stop that. In germany said if anybody suggests a up there will be one hell of a fight. And i don't propose to lose. It is how he characterized it. And that is a stark contrast in previous years when everybody was so supportive like help being with quantity increases to help with the production ramp of the

"We saw an increase twenty twenty an increase of about twelve percent in sales in store. We were closed for three months. We started slowing down at the beginning of the pandemic. And then we had a close and emma reopened river slow and then people started coming out again and then sales went up. Tony and stacey seminar are the owners of depot records in lawrenceville. So you guys would agree that music fans turn to vinyl during the pandemic absolutely so what are they buying when they come to depot their lawrenceville. What our music fans buying. It's a mix it's sixty percent. Classic rock and forty percent newar artists a lot of the vinyl. The newer artists drop are limited releases and almost considered collectible and then on the flip side. We have a lot of people new vinyl that are just buying the classic rock. The pink floyd the led zeppelin's We increase in like yellow. That kind of stuff to stuff. That's been in movie soundtracks that people like and they're just coming into this at her this on the radio. I heard this movie. do you have this. The recording industry association of america has released his numbers and it says that vinyl sales are outpacing. cd's and tony. You were telling me off the air. When did this start. Twenty nineteen was the first time a vinyl exceeded cd of physical for physical media sales. I was the second half of twenty nineteen vinyl exceeded cd sales for the first time. And you as a record store owner attributed this to the the sound of vinyl or tell me what the appeal is part of the appeal. I believe is the warmth of the sound that you get from vinyl record that you just do not get from digital media. Part of it is physically being able to hold a record and look at liner notes that you can actually read on twelve by twelve sheet of paper. Does any of this have to do with it. Being kind of a fad. Or is it back for good. We thought possibly five years ago when we opened. But we may make a run of this for a couple years. i don't see it being fad. So you guys would agree that silver lining from the entire co- vid pandemic. Was that record. Stores local record stores like depot records in lawrenceville thrived. I believe so yes. We have I think part of it is as more people are staying at home. The way people listened to music is changing back to the way it used to be there. There's not as much get in the car drive. Throw something on your iphone now. People are actually making listening to music an event even if they're doing it on their own they're sitting in their living rooms. They're sitting in their basements putting on that piece of vinyl and enjoying themselves tony and stacy's seminary are the owners of depot records. It's on north clayton in lawrenceville.

"Common. Hi welcome back to the daily post. Football friday podcast. Which things up a little bit this week with a college schedule especially locally being all over the map Literally we are going to transition to recruiting news and discuss some of our local talent making their college commitments. So we'll over the past week. See what have been some standouts. It's been a big hit particularly this week. It's been big for peach periods both former and current players albert jiang. Who was the county punter and kicker for for lines. Couple years ago he He committed a pin. He had been originally committed to army and it kind of changed his mind to pin in the early market. If he's got an army and as options he's gonna avi league where i think he'll do very well at penn and cody arcade fox off. Its alignment up therapy Committed central arkansas. But i think the most noteworthy news was a was amari. Mcneil bestiary senior lamis. He's big good six four to eighty five something like that. He's a e- committed the tennessee volunteers. This week is a guy that was recruited up there as a defensive laminated. he didn't even at all salaam. it has entire career. Peachtree ridge just started playing a little defensive line this year. And i guess the tennessee volunteers and coach pruitt is obviously. He's a defensive coach. Knows what he's doing Saw something that they really liked about a mcneil on defense and ended up offering him late in the process. And and i took that offer up tennessee. Chance to plenty sec. I think he's a. He's been a very underrated talent. The last several years. It's great to see him that opportunity and this week also wills a recruiting convention or a meeting that mill creek. I saw the article on prep sports. Dot com a. What was that event like. Especially during this pandemic and the change really into recruiting practices and approach to things. We've had to deal with in twenty twenty. It was the was the touchdown club with their annual college recruiting fair. It's a it's a win. It's hosted by the touchdown club goes but it's really the teams from all schools from oliver. North georgia high schools to come there. A lot of fulton county schools for site schools cop schools of the government is this event. It's very well attended by college. Coaches in the past. You'd see hundreds and hundreds of college coaches run through Recruiting when it gives an other kids. Another areas of the college coaches is largely smaller schools. You'll see some big schools in the travel They can come kind of a one stop shop to see that many kids at that many different schools and not have to do as much traveling around all over the place when their budgets. Not the same as Some of the sec schools in that sort of thing so it gives them a chance to talk with local coaches see video. Get a little more information. On inside on players it's generally in the arena and the and the civic center there and it's a it's a lot of people packed into a small place but of course with covert. It was a little different this year. They had to do it. Outdoors Mill creek the tents. We're kind of set up around the track which those the best they could do in that situation with covid and i. I think the other big differences. The college recruiting is a little different right now. smaller schools don't have the budget and don't law out of uncertainty. How spots seems going to have with gets coming back and that sort of thing so that the number of colleges attending was much much smaller than normally is but still reasonable number of teams and schools showed up over there to look at kids and And i think there's probably certainly see a handful of kids that found some opportunities coming out of the fair which should be a handful of kids can can find their way to college football program. I think it was worth having if for sure any other college stanton that you saw from this past week represented gwinnett. Well i think a couple that stood out to me. I think i think number one davis mills Former gs jason quarterback he led stanford to win over number twenty washington. It was the first loss for a season. For washington's a record on the season davis was twenty out of thirty passing. Two hundred fifty two yards and a touchdown all set a couple of runs and that Great effort by davis. He's having a big senior season. He's a free education into which is never a bad thing while he's out there and kid i wanted to mention will show Former oxford defensive lineman troy shutout south alabama and. He was a big reason why last week he had one enough sacks and continues to be a force on the defensive line for troy for sure and nfl spotlight. We'll have a repeat this this week with another guy. He's taking advantage of the opportunity to play in. Probably leading one of the hottest teams in the nfl to now only by plow spa potentially a division title lang almond from the nearest guy eligible clemson and played grayson here locally his kind of rebirth continues to it kind of got drafted in the fourth round in two thousand seventeen and a nice rookie season restaurant. And seventy four hundred seventy six ago and we'll like is going to be the future of the franchise and then The chance to drift saquon barkley. Who's just once in a generation type talent. They're running back so kind of push pushed to the back burner. He had a hundred seventy six yards a second year in the pros and the only one hundred rushing yards all of two thousand nineteen so we can get a lot of lot of touches. Their saquon getting hurt. He's gonna rebirth. This year is kinda showed. His value had a career high. One hundred thirty five rushing yards last week in the giants. Be a big sixty yard. Run in the third four. That was a career long so at his career. Along with sixty yard is your best. One hundred. Thirty five rushing yards is actually one of the three league nominees for the fedex ground player of the week. So like you said a breakthrough for performance one of the hottest teams of the league teams in league. He's he's a dominant. Football player was a great linebacker in high school. And he's doing it for a team that's on a lot of football games right now and that makes it a lot more fun.

"I just I think you've been sort of at the forefront of thinking about a lot of these issues for decades that really are at the forefront of the weather enterprise now, which I wanna use this last few minutes here to get your thoughts on what the weather enterprise could be doing better. And what's next for Bryan Norcross. So take those two out. Okay. Well, in terms of what we could do better, we have got to get understanding and control of the what we all do when we put out seventy forecast and forecasts, where we give specific temperature seven days in advance or fifteen days in advance, have a nose sometimes and what that does to our ability to say that are, we can't forecast with precision into the few. Future, you know they are. Those are are countervailing messages devry single day that people look at their phone? Yes. Can the forecast for a week from now is given with exactly the same precision that our forecast for tomorrow is giving on everybody's phone every single area. So we, we can't as a community do that every day and expect people to understand that hurricane hurricane track, five days from now is somehow less precise than where it's going to be amazed Morrow. Yes, this point I've never thought about it like that, but you're spot on with that. So I think that's, I think that's the biggest issue that we have in communicating with the public is that it's not just broadcasters. It's the national weather service fills out a database called the end EFD. With, you know, absolute numbers at the coastline. When a hurricane is approaching, when when all that was was being developed a general Kelly was in charge of the weather service's time. And and I said, what I suggest you do is in your database when there's irc in approaching the coast, put x.'s in those boxes where there was a certain threshold threat so that nobody thinks that you can forecast exactly where the strong winds are going to be. And the heaviest rain is going to be well. They didn't do that. And none of us do that and it's it's just bad for people's understanding of the uncertainty of future forecast. I completely we're, we're almost out of time gotta get you in though with what's next for you. I know you recently relocated back the Miami, so thirty seconds on what you're up to next. Okay. Well, I I've always actually lived in Miami when I was worth Weather Channel. I would. I would come up and work in the Weather Channel and live there part time and and I love my my time there and I still. Will do some work with the Weather Channel. I was a few weeks ago. So for now, I'm I'm hurricane specialist on w. g. we call local ten here in south Florida. It's it's, you know, I've been living here thirty five years. This is my town and and it's great to be talking to people about the hurricane threat to this region which is extreme. There's no question about it. So for the foreseeable future, you know, you'll see me in south Florida, local ten, and occasionally you'll see me on the Weather Channel. We're really appreciate you joining us on the weather geeks. Podcast. Say Hello to my good friends, Bette Davis and max Mayfield station as well. I'll do it and thank you again for joining us. It's been a fascinating. I wish we had more time because there so much. I wanted to get to perhaps have you back. Thank you so much, Brian, Norcross Marshall. Thank you.

"It's better if the hash tag is set by authoritative agency, there's no question about it and what we've done with the Weather Channel naming has proved that it works because airlines use at schools, use it, utilities use it, politicians use it. You know, it's the people that don't like the fact that the Weather Channel is doing it. I think that that mostly don't use the names because obviously it makes Twitter work better, and people that are in the communications business are all about, right? Right. And I could certainly see how competitor or some others may not want to use something that sort of has the Weather Channel Mark. Being on it or DNA or origination point by the counter-argument there as well. If everyone's not using it creates confusion level in the public. Well, I don't think so. I mean, people use it and if you follow the storm name, you'll see your Twitter column, your tweet that column. We'll just go, go go, right, but also if you put in, you know, hash snow hash blizzard hash all those kind of generic things that'll go even faster. I think that most people would ignore that if there were one common hashtag for four, the storm that everybody accepted that would just consolidate the information more neatly. But generally what happens is people will put it both hashtags. They'll put hash snow and they'll put hash and the the storm name. And so it kinda works now, but I'm very hopeful. The United States is more complicated in terms of the weather regime and the way weather forecasts are coordinated. So you know, it's a heavier lift to do it here than it is in in Britain where. Are they started a few years ago to resounding success. We've talked to the the head of the British metal, a met office there, and also the Irish met office and and they're just exceeded their expectations dramatically terms of public and media acceptance of their winter storm naming. So I, you know, I think the evidence is that it's a good thing, but it's not a trivial thing. She's so in a world where everybody's busy, you know, focusing on it and doing it right is what really counts. I knew this was going to be a challenging podcast. There's so much. I wanna get to you the we're almost out of time. We got time for maybe a couple of more quick topics, Brian. I wanted to get your thoughts quickly on what you mean when you say precision is the enemy of accuracy. Well, I think that all of us can Gan relate to this. We think back to when we were kids and we had a professor in college or teacher in high school that would talk in jargon that we didn't really understand and would tell us many more things, and we just wanted them to get to the point. Tell me your point so I can understand what you're talking about here. It's a, it's, you know, I want to want to understand the forest and then we'll start talking about the tree. So in my mind, sometimes when you're communicating information, what you want to it is accurate to have people understand that they are at risk and that the risk is increasing. And that will know we will know more about whether the risk will continue to increase or decrease later on today because of this bad storm. That's more important than them knowing exactly what the radar is showing in terms of the rain. In bands and the structure of the eye and the recon messages and the SF are and the details of the models and the spaghetti plots and all that. So so I think that in the modern world, we have become so precise in our communications by thinking that if we're not giving fulsome information with all the background material that we are not accurate, and I push back against that idea that you can indeed be overly precise and have they'll that information dull the accuracy of the communication in the end because you just put this doubt, we never know exactly. Well, if you if you present, if you don't talk about what we know specifically that this is a high risk of vent, based on everything we know the risk is increasing if you don't ever get to that conclusive. Understanding by the person you're communicating with, then you've lost them in the in the weeds? Yeah, that's a great point..

"That this was going to be a significant threat. Like a mega nor'easter kind of threat was storm surge and wind and everything else on a large part of the northeastern coast. And I've never like the term post tropical cyclone because to me, post has a meaning of past and past connotation of weaker and over and less threat and so forth. So as it was moving up somewhere over North Carolina, the Hurricane Center put out to the notice that that they would transition it. And at that time they were thinking was going to be on Saturday. Remember it hit on Monday. They were thinking on Saturday was going to transition to post tropical cyclone. And I got with our graphics folks at the Weather Channel said, we're not gonna put post tropical cyclone on the Weather Channel because this is too dangerous and event unrelated to the technical meteorology of it. So as soon as the National Hurricane Center transitions from hurricane sandy to post post tropical cyclones, Andy, we're going to transition to superstorm sandy. So that's what we did. And of course it became to be called superstorm. Now I can't swear that nobody else had the same idea at the same time because I was watching the Weather Channel and we were plenty busy, you know. But anyway, that's where from the Weather Channel standpoint, at least stupor superstorm sandy came from. Okay, that's that's an interesting evolution there. And I think that's right. I think sandy changed the game. I think it actually change procedures because there was so much confusion about, okay, who's in charge of it now? How are people going to receive the warnings that goes from being a her from hurricane warnings to this post tropical? So I think all of that sort of commotion did create a better situation for warning the public. Now I want to transition bit over to another sort of topic that I think you had your hand while the web. Channel naming winter storms. This is one that boy creates a lot of controversy out there and Twitter and in weather. Twitter, how did it come about and do you still think it's a good idea. Yeah, I still think it's a great idea. The way it came about was again, I had this same management job at that time, and now we're talking about late two thousand eleven and came along and October snowstorm, which their digital side of the Weather Channel name, snow Tober. And of course they did hash no Tober and so forth on the digital platforms and that was going over so well, I said that put that on TV let's call. It's not over on TV and that's so obviously worked that we needed a name of certainly for hashtags because what's Notova prove is that made Twitter light up and people follow the storm like crazy. So we were going to have to come up with hashtags and names for these storms. Quasi name some kind of something or other, and you know you, you could do snow vendor or something..

"And welcome back to the whether beats podcasts and Dr Marshall shepherd university of Georgia. And I'm talking with Bryan Norcross and you just heard a really interesting and fascinating story about the evolution of the hurricane cone of uncertainty. And I think that a lot of people might not have known that story before listening to that. So I wanna now enter a little rapid fire topics phased talking about some areas related to communication of whether, but the first one I want that the route and I wanna spend about a minute with each of these Brian. The first one is sandy superstorm sandy think is another storm that people resonate with familiar with temporary times you I understand had something to do, or at least with coining the term superstorm. I know Ryan Maui and I've talked about this in the past, what what were you thinking in terms of the superstorm or. No, you're trying to sort of capture this notion of a tropical system that was going to become extra tropical. What was your goal there? Well, at that time I was doing hurricanes on the Weather Channel was one of the hurricane specialists, but also I was in management. I was in charge of whether presentation and content and sandy was coming up the coast, the National Hurricane Center in one of their discussions mention that they were not going to put up hurricane warnings, north of Virginia. I think it was because they were thinking that sandy would transform into more like a nor'easter, which in their technical parlance would be called a post tropical cyclone gets so getting its energy from air mass differences or rather than the water that hurricanes do from the exact right well. So when I saw that and we all thought all along by the way that regardless of that kind of meteorological transition that still..

"So part of my task when I I was hired because I couldn't be on TV for six months because of creek contractual clause in my previous contract, which was going to normal thing that there's no compete call those things still are around. Yeah. Yeah. They're around in some places. A lot of places they've been ruled illegal, so I was off the air for six months during that time. My my goal and my mission was to think about new ways to do the weather. And I thought about a lot of things, and we did a lot of interesting things in the studio. To do the traditional daily weather differently. I walk out on peers to give the forecast and and there was a lot of stuff and in hurricanes the idea of how to communicate the forecast always annoyed me. And I thought a lot about that. And I thought, you know, we can't show these points because back then it was only three days seventy two hours and you had these three points in the future. And what did that didn't tell you anything? Nobody really thought that hurricanes before forecast three days in advance would any kind of reasonable certainty in the early nineties. It just wasn't, you know, just wasn't part of our thinking that that was even practical. So putting a dot on a map was even more ridiculous back then than it is now. Well, somehow and I do not remember how I really wish I did. I was hooked up with Charlie Newman. I started asking around about average errors to Hurricane Center and. Said, go see, Charlie Newman. Well, Charlie Newman was a an just at BIC man in meteorology. In fact, I just was reading disol- in the bulletin of America. Miracle says he has society and the in the bulletin. There's a bitchy wary on Charlie who passed away last year well into his nineties and Charlie's responsible for so much of the technical underpinnings of what we do today with hurricane models. Yes, and everything else. Well, he, he lived in in suburban Miami, and and he had polio that he had gotten into that. I didn't understand how he got into. I read the bitchy just yesterday a matter of fact, and I went to his house and he took me to his computer room and he had all these computers more computers than I ever seen anybody's house with these screens that were just green. If you remember those old computer, computer screens in nineteen Ninety-one, just had green and black was black and the. The type was screened and he showed me from his database. What average error ellipses looked like for various basins. And he gave me the figures that he had. He had kept these and a game to learn later that he had kept them for decades, and he was had the center running average air, but they were lips. They weren't circles. They were longer along track and then they were across struck, well, it gave me the number has went back and I thought these ellipses, we can't use these ellipses. Let me just take an average of all this because we're just trying to show that that it's not going to just not points. It's an area of risk. It's not just as line, right? That was what I was trying to show. So I asked out Charlie's errors. And may these arcs that represented the sort of the width of each ellipse moving into the future twenty four forty eight seventy two hours in advance. And that was the precursor to the cone which I actually used the first time. The Wednesday before Hurricane Andrew hits a Hurricane, Andrew was the first time that was used. So the comb cone was used on it by a private work Astor broadcaster before it wasn't hurricane thinner. Is that what you're saying? Yeah, by by ten years. Wow. So the reason that it wasn't filled in cone fashion was because of the software available to back then didn't allow us to fill in a as some sort of figure on the screen. All we could do is draw lines and then in in nineteen Ninety-six. When I changed the station and we got the newer graphics machine that allowed it. We actually made the. The cone that was drawn in more or less the the way the cone is is done today except that we had to do it sort of manually with these average errors that were, we had him on a piece of paper and a plastic map and and so forth and so on..

"I'm Dr Marshall shepherd and we're talking with Bryan Norcross hearing about his fascinating journey. I think just listening to that first part of the podcast, you get a good sense of poop. Bryan Norcross is his background and for me, even someone who's known Brian for some time now really sort of connect dots for me in terms of why Brian is not just been a very important figure in sort of the weather communication forecasting, but he is thought quite a bit about this challenge of communicating weather in how the public perceives us. I want to kind of pivot to that part of the discussion. Now, of course, I think many people know you press beyond sort of your local stops from your exemplary in life, saving work with Hurricane Andrew during your time and Florida. But a lot of people may not know that in addition to your stories about Andrew, they don't know that you help with the hurricane comb. So. Tell us a little bit about your hurricane experience on. We don't have time to really go through the entire experience of Andrew, but tell us about sort of the key highlights of your Andrew experience and your role in the hurricane cone of uncertainty. And I really wanna spend some time on that because I think it's a challenge even today for people to understand what what's being conveyed there. Law. So through the nineteen eighties, I was working for the station which incidentally, I work for again here these many years later, w g in Miami, and I was doing a weather program five thirty weather, which I called neighborhood weather and what that involved was telling a story of some kind every day five days a week from a different location. Now, occasionally, when there was a big storm, the location would be in the weather office where I would sit at the weather computer and they use the camera. I do kind of techie, geeky kind of explanation of what was going on on the monitors, different kind of weather, casts and the normal Chroma key kind that you see in the studio. But generally I'd be in the field somewhere and that evolved to my telling history stories about south Florida. And that evolved to my spending a lot of time at the history museums and south Florida. And what I learned in the eighties is you can't tell the history of south Florida without talking about hurricanes because Miami is the most likely place on the coast, most likely major city on the coast to have a hurricane any one year and and in the first seven decades of the twentieth century. And remember all this was happening in the twentieth century in the first seven decades, a hurricane came over downtown Miami seven times where the I actually came over and went calm down Miami seven times in seven decades. So it's it's quite a remarkable part of the history of the city. And that is what really got me thinking about, well, if any of those hurricanes of the past, because a number of those were category fours and quite damaging in the past. But of course entirely different, much more complicated, much more populated city today started thinking about, you know, those his. Stora hitting modern south Florida, and what an incredible issue that would be. And I thought, boy, if I were ever chief engine chief meteorologist, I really be trying to think about what what would we do? Because everybody would be looking at me and saying, what do we do now? We don't really have plans for for this cause net. Right now we're talking about in the late eighties and there hadn't been a significant Miami hurricanes since nineteen sixty five and hurricane, Betsy so. And during that twenty years, the city had changed just geometric growth had taken place during that time. So then lo and behold in nineteen ninety, I was hired by NBC to be chief meteorologist of the NBC station in Miami and all those thoughts I add about what would we have to do to get ready for hurricane kinda came to the fore and the station was extremely supportive about. Whatever I needed order. They were going to try and make happen in terms of getting back up connections to the West Palm Beach radar, for example, and putting in backup systems to be sure we could stay on the air. We communicate and override of things that all came into play two and a half years later when Hurricane Andrew came, didn't know that was going to ever happen well to get to the cone story Marshall..

"Listen to, and I did that often on through late. Fifty eight and sixty nine while I was in school and and then I also worked at the university station WFAN sure. Barry as berry Allen, which I, I didn't know about the flashback then, but, but I Ron Isley that was the name used. And anyway, they're clips of all this on YouTube is kind of funny. So I did that. I did other things while I was in school there outside of broadcasting, I owned a stereo store and that's what I use really to put myself through Florida state. But when that was over in seventy two really didn't know what was a math major physics minor. I did not study meteorology as undergraduate, and I technically could have gotten a mass communications minor, I think, but I was kind of want to watch. I do watch. I do, and I had been working in TV stations and engineer my last quarter as undergraduate and let me just go see if I can find a job like that, which was an engine. Nearing job back then which was a videotape operator type engineer. And so I just wrote to Alanna one day and I said, I just say you're looking for a job, what do you do? I said, well, I kind of an engineer. I via tape. I work at TV station. I'm kind of a science guy. All right. Let's talk to the chief engineer anyway. I got a job as an engineer and nineteen. So I started January of nineteen Seventy-three in Atlanta's and engineer that evolved into being a director at the station. Wwl am Atlanta, and that evolved into my moving to the sister station in Denver to direct the news and Denver that evolve into producing the news deciding, you know what was going to be the news that day, which is a really weird transition, but it happened. And then I got transferred to the Louisville station to run that news department as I said. And during that time when I got more interested in sort of thinking about the weather actually filled in, I assigned myself. To fill in for weather for the first time in September of nineteen seventy eight. So I'm coming up from forty years from my first actual on television, whether. And and then I went back to FSU and starting in seventy nine to get my masters and meteorology at that point. So that was meteorology was a special meteorology program that Tom Gleeson was this great one of the originating professors of meteorology yet Florida state going back to the fifties. He thought that FSU needed to expand into broadcast meteorology. So they, he got together with the dean of the communications school, and they designed a master's program for me that instead of doing the research meteorology, I did research in weather communications this connecting dots for me now, Brian because I, we're gonna talk about later a lot of your interesting communication now I understand it, right? So that's where all that started. I did these research projects. I had my because I taught two classes while I was going to FSU and and I did the fi. Five thirty and eleven o'clock weather on the labia station shell twenty-seven there and Tallahassee. And so I had my students do these random calls and compile database that I could analyze for my papers at the end of the of my masters talking about how people perceived whether information. And yeah, that became really kind of a foundation of what happened next. So anyway, when I graduated, which was a year later, so I actually did that masters in one school year was insane, and CNN was starting in June of nineteen eighty. And they hard me to do the weather and that evolved to somebody in San Francisco, seeing me and my move into San Francisco and and doing whether there and then I ended up back in Atlanta running documentaries and magazines. Nineteen eighty two for Ted Turner and through a convoluted process. I ended up in Miami, but I got offered. This job in Miami doing the weather back to doing the weather and eighty three and been in Miami living in Miami ever since. Except, you know, when I was working there at the Weather Channel for eight years, I was in Atlanta..

"Only one in Louisville able to get to a TV station, the only actual human coverage of the snowstorm early that that Tuesday morning and it was this incredible fourteen inches of snow that fell overnight incapacitated the city completely, and they had a law in Louisville that they'd passed because they hadn't had any snow in a while. So they they got rid of their city plows and said, well, we'll just hire private plows. But the rule was that they had to have a city council meeting in order to hire the private Prowse and approve it. Well, guess what? Nobody could get to the city council to have a meeting to hire the plow. So. So I thought this is incredible news, right? This is really big stuff. It's finally an hour, an hour and a half, two hours later people started making it in in the news department, and I said, I want as a news recreation. I'm not even officially news director yet not even fish working here yet, but I want the mayor of Louisville on our TV station, answering the questions of what is the city doing about this? This is just a huge, the screw up. You know, incredible. And I want the and they're looking at me like, yes, yes, get the mayor on. So we physically pushed the remote truck out of the lot. We were the only remote truck that actually got out on the road got down there. We're running the wires to the mayor's office, and I get this call from the assignment that the judge is on the phone. You need to speak to the to the judge. I said, Joe, what do I need to talk to a judge for? No, you gotta talk to him. Okay. Judge, what can I do for you? Well, I understand you're putting the camera down the mayor's office. I insist that you bring that camera two mile of I said, judge really wish I could help you, but the cameras, the mayor's office. If you've got something to add this fiasco that I suggest to go down there. Well, that judge is name was Mitch McConnell. Wow. And and as it turned out, he being Republican the, the mayor was a democrat, aim stands berry. They hated each other politically personally as well than McConnell had never been to stands, varies office, let alone to be on television, but he went down there. So I actually built a little bridge that that morning and not knowing at all what I was doing. My Louisville story starting starting of a long career of building bridges perhaps. But I, you know, you've had such an illustrious career. We're talking with Bryan Norcross about his fifty years of broadcasting. We're gonna talk about a lot of interesting topics today. Hurricanes, Andrew, superstorm sandy naming winter storms, though. Hang around because we got a lot to talk about today. But before we get to our sort of that sort of transition point, I wanted to kind of circle back to the weather report over the radio at sixteen years old for hurricane Camille. Because hurricane Camille, I think for many people, I remember my parents talking about hurricane Camille. And since then we've had Katrina 's and Sandy's Andrews, but tell us about your perspective, particularly a sixteen year old about hurricane Camille and give some of the younger listeners perspective on this storm as it compares to things we're seeing today. Well, in nineteen sixty nine. I was actually eighteen and was my second year on on the radio. She started at seventeen the year before, but this was my first big, you know, I done local weather forecasts, obviously, like every disc jockey did, but this was the first time that a hurricane significant hurricane threaten Florida during my time on the radio, which was in my hometown Melbourne and the summers. So the reason that I was reporting on it, a Melbourne, Florida cause remember, it was a Gulf hurricane was because on that Saturday, it hit Sunday night. On that Saturday, it was forecast to hit the panhandle, Florida. So it was a Florida hurricane at that point and hurricane warnings were issued for Florida pan, and there was nothing up for the Mississippi coast. So that's why I was talking about at all on the air in Melbourne. Wasn't because it was a a local threat just because it was a threat to the state..

"His first weather report came over the radio back in nineteen sixty nine and spoke of a hurricane named Camille heading toward the Gulf Coast. Since then Bryan Norcross has covered dozens of major weather events including Berkane, Andrew, which changed south Florida and is life forever. Brian has worked at local news stations, national cable network and the Weather Channel. He has seated all done it all and has the stories to prove it. Today we hear about Brian's fifty years in broadcasting a career field with incredible timing, amazing achievements and a whole lot of fun. Thank you for joining us on the weather podcast. I'm Dr Marshall shepherd from the university of Georgia is a pleasure to talk to Brian Norcross. Thank you for joining us. Hang Seng, Marshall, very, very happy. First of all, let me just congratulate fifty years Brian that that's amazing. It's interesting because you know that's nineteen sixty-nine kind of special for me too, because that's when I kinda came on the scene there, and I and I was born here in Georgia, but then quickly move to Florida. So hurricanes. My dad's still lives in. He worries about hurricanes and he knows about Bryan Norcross. So it's really an honor to be talking to you. You've had all kinds of experiences from CNN and the Weather Channel Miami Atlanta. I wanna get into all of that, but before we dive into that, just tell us a little bit about you. Where'd you grow up and how'd you become a weather? Well, I grew up in east central Florida and provide galaxy near Cape Canaveral. My father was a NASA engineer. We moved to that area with the beginning of the program in nineteen sixty two. And you know, he was one of the many. Many engineers were enrolled war to educated under the GI Bill and got a degree in engineering and and then in early sixties, the Senate on Florida and the area around Cape Canaveral. Because president Kennedy said, we're gonna go to the moon and through the sixties. That's where I lived in. That's where he worked. And I was as a result of, I guess, genetics and whatever. I was kind of a science person what I was also very interested in broadcasting. So in spite of the fact that I live through some hurricanes hurricane, Betsy, I was out surfing with hurricane Betsy off shore of central Florida clear. Remember Donna, remember New Jersey. My earliest memory of anything hurricane Hazel in nineteen fifty four. That knocked the power out when I was three years old and New Jersey. But even with all of that, it really wasn't. I'm not like like you and and most every meteorologist. I know they can identify the moment that got them interested in other with me. I was really a broadcaster and I was working is a news manager was running a news department and Louisville, Kentucky in my twenty seven twenty. Eight years old. I was doing that. And I, I realized that what I was missing was all my science background in that weather was the confluence of science and broadcasting. And so that's what encouraged me to quit that career and go back to Florida state and get my masters and see if I could do it. And that led to CNN and all variety of things in the future and overriding of big weather events. I heard a little rumor about an experience of yours in Louisville with, I guess your first big weather event. It was a strange conflicts events. Can you tell us a little bit about this or heard it involved a snowstorm back in nineteen seventy eight. It was the amazing confluence of events. You can't even imagine it happening to ask could by what happened was I was in Denver, and I was producing the ten o'clock news at the what became the number one station. We very successful with the program I was producing, and the company promoted me to run the news department at their Louisville station..
