Best Weathercaster (2010)

Kaj Goldberg

Kaj Goldberg seems like the ultimate boob-tube phony: stylish first name (pronounced "Kye"), ambiguous ethnicity, good looks and a smile that stretches from here to Barstow. But the half-African-American, half-Swedish native of Los Angeles quickly wins over any skeptics with his weather forecasts—not too goofy, not too pedantic, always conversational. Goldberg has been covering the weather for only a few years, but he is already as much a local fixture (appearing on broadcasts for both Channel 2 and Channel 9 as part of their news-sharing agreement) as Fritz Coleman or even Carl Bell. Enjoy him while you can—the nightly performances Goldberg puts on scream future anchor.
