Best Weathercaster (2012)

Carl Bell

We remember the days when Carl Bell was supposed to be the next weathercaster crossover star, à la Fritz Coleman, when he brought levity to the KCAL-TV Channel 9 news block, while Jerry Dunphy and Pat Harvey held the fort with gravitas. That was more than 20 years ago, and while his bid for mainstream fame never panned out and he ended up switching stations to KNBC-TV Channel 4, he's still at it, giving you weekend broadcasts in calm, cool tones among SoCal's sierras of weathercaster girls. He's as gracious and kind off the air as he is on it, which is also a rarity in a profession in which divas rule.
