KPTM Will Air Severe Storms Special Thursday At 10

KPTM headerKPTM (Cox Channel 10) will air all five of its "Worst Storms in Nebraska" segments Thursday as part of its "Nebraska Severe Storms Special" at 10 p.m.

The special will be hosted by KPTM Chief Meteorologist Tyson Pearsall and weekend meteorologist Nathan Moore. On the "News at Nine" last week, Pearsall counted down the five deadliest storms in Nebraska history.

The station is also inviting viewers to share their experiences of severe storms through the Community Correspondent section of KPTM.com.

Those segments have been great...nice job to Tyson and Nathan getting this special put together.

I agree...the segment on the Omaha tornado in the 70's was wonderful.

Nice try Nathan Moore and Nathan Moore's Mom...

*shrugs*

The best part of Tyson's forecast? No homesick gophers, no lovesick lemmings (Roger Shwartz's knock-off of the homesick gophers), no Jim Flowers nervous laughing... just a straightforward forecast without kooky stuff.

Anyone else notice that KPTM has upgraded its weather graphics and radar?

Aww, c'mon... The Nathan's gotta have pretty decent pecs, when you see a profile shot of him he's not sporting any beer gut.

I'd love to see him decked out in a black leather harness and chaps a la that nightclub in the Matrix.

Seriously, Nathan, you have a fan club out here.

DB said...

You can have Nathan Moore. I'm all about Tyson Pearsall. He's got that cute little frat boy thing going for him.

Oh how I'd love to get him into the shower with me.

All these comments are so laughably cute... I don't have the heart to "rain" on your sweet parade.

Guess I'll have to check in again to see these two babe magnets.

Great job!

Meanwhile, Channel 7 had something on last night about a UNO sociology major posing as a stripper to get class credits. I love sweeps!

Jess said...

Wow good thing they're hot because if not then their ideas and the show would suck... ?

The tornado and storm shows are good either way, in my opinion, if I can watch Jim Cantore of TWC do a show then I can tolerate just about anyone.

Although hotness does help...hell I don't even know what I'm trying to say I just wanted to comment ! Ha !

I wanna ride in Tyson's Corvette...

Sweeps can and should only mean one thing...Roger Schwartz in a thong...omg, that would be hot!!

I applaud KPTM for hosting the severe storm special. Were any of you there? They are actual doing something positive for the city. good job KPTM.

I would love to see their news reporter Nabil Molai naked

Just clicked on your link to Tyson Pearsall, and it said he graduated from Arizona. If Arizona doesn't have a weather department, how does he suddenly become a "chief meteorologist"? Through the magic of KPTM's promotions department?
At least the weekend guy's bio says that he got some master's degrees in meteorology from Mississippi State University.
I guess if you call a pig's ear a purse.....but he DOES drive a 'vette!

Jess said...

Were any of us where ? At the special ? At the tornado ? What man ?

Gawd no one was saying " this is a crap thing don't watch it."

Now, go check your hair Tyson you're on air in 45 minutes.

;)

dingbat said...

Oh heavens no. Any visions of any of the Channel Seven weather nerds without clothes on will have me screaming in my sleep (and not in ecstasy)

Andrea Bredow in ANYTHING revealing would be above average. More of her and less of Elicita Hammond would be even better.

Anonymous said...

WHAT-EVVVVERRR! Tyson knows his stuff. And he's hott. I wouldn't mind licking him.

Now, Nabil... get back to work. No one wants to see you naked. Hahaha ;-)

Roger Schwartz in a thong... that'd better happen on a boring weather day. He gets so excited when there's severe weather -- we don't need to see his "weather pointer" snapping to attention on air...

Anonymous said...

This must be ladies night out on the blog.

I got a better idea -- let's ship Roger Schwartz off to the TV station in North Platte so we never have to see his ugly mug on TV in this area ever again. That guy is so annoying...

Anonymous said...

I can pass on Bill Randby in a thong, but Julie Cornell doing the newscast dressed as Catwoman would be a winner! *Purrr*

Anonymous said...

I don't think Andrea is hot anymore. She looks like she's putting on too much weight.

Won't be able to see the maps at this rate!

I disagree. I think she's looking better and better all the time.

But, more importantly, I think she's continuing to get better and better with regards to her job.

I hope she has a long career here in Omaha.

just because you have a degree in meteorology from Mississippi State University doesn't mean you know your sh!t.. if you look, that is where a lot of meteorologist get a degree.. because you can do it online while you work at the TV station anywhere in the country...

chief meteorologist through the magic of KPTM's promotions department?

i need to apply for that promotions gig.. screw this news stuff!

Just because it is done via online /distance learning and such doesn't make it equal a degree from the University of Phoenix. :-p

The MSU program is a good one (on campus as well). Besides, if it wasn't a decent program, they wouldn't have make it available to do the course work that way.

In addition to that, you speak like she just got out of school. She's been at the station for 5 years now and had some further experience before coming to Omaha.

She does quite well, in my opinion.

I don't have a problem with Schwartz...just looks like he is 12. May the Scwartz be with you!

Anonymous said...

Well if Schwartz looks like he's 12 than Matt Schick looks like he's 5

Anonymous said...

He not only looks it -- he ACTS it.

Ever notice that whenever he's on the weekend newscasts or is subbing on the early morning program, he ALWAYS has to have the last word??? ALWAYS??? He's ALWAYS stepping over the anchors as the camera backs away and the theme music comes up..."take care."

Third-rate substitute meterologists should barely be seen at the end of newscasts...they should NEVER be heard.

Dingbat said...

Roger Schwartz may be bad. But nobody holds a candle to that dreadful, dreadful John Campbell. Oh Sweet Heavens, I cannot watch that guy.

Anonymous said...

I know Nathan and Rodger....the both look great in thongs...but the edge goes to Rodger (brazilian wax job)

Anonymous said...

Dingbat....the thing is, Campbell is just dull and boring. I can handle dull and boring. If nothing else, having Campbell on during a 10 p.m. newscast provides a great sleep aid. Schwartz is just punch-the-guy-in-the-mouth annoying. He makes you want to reach through the TV screen, grab the guy by the throat and squeeze until his eyeballs are sucked into his skull and forced out through his nostrils.

Good God...being forced to experience 15 seconds of Schwartz actually makes me want to 5 seconds of Travis Justice...and that's 5 seconds more than ANY human being should be subjected to without a court order.

Dude, if you have that strong of a feeling towards certain individuals, perhaps avoiding those particular newscasts altogether might help keep that blood pressure in check.

That amount of anger towards anyone just for performing their job is really uncalled for.

Wow.

YOU need a court order.

Dingbat said...

I know, I know, but John Campbell. The way he becomes absolutely giddy when he gets to forecast a "top ten day". Its almost a little frightening. I half expect him to turn all "Twin Peaks" on us and say in a calm soothing voice, "I haven't been this excited since I punctured Caroline's aorta"

Can you imagine him forecasting weather in Honolulu? Sweet Heavenly Sister of Mercy, he'd be walking around with this constant euphoric glaze upon his face, the type of glaze usually reserved for people who mutter, "I've just seen the face of God"

Brian said...

I'd rather see John like that then looking all gloom and doom just because there's gonna be some rain in the forecast, you know?

Besides, perhaps it's just showing through his work just how much he enjoys his job.

We should all be so fortunate to enjoy our jobs as much. :-)

Anonymous said...

He may very well enjoy his job. But he is such a dork.

There's few things worse in the world when somebody who is terribly unfunny tries to be funny.

The night time weekend newscast is perfect for him. At least until they introduce a 3am newscast.

"There's few things worse in the world when somebody who is terribly unfunny tries to be funny."

This would be a dead-on assessment of those two guys who do KPTM's news on weekends. They are so unfunny-while-trying-to-be-funny that it's uncomfortably stupid.
