I like stumbling across these and sharing. Don't know if this has ever been posted here, but it was damn fun to watch just now.
Guess I shouldn't be too hard on current weather/news folks...since even this segment from 1978 has the obligatory "what are shoppers stocking up with" segment!
If you haven't seen this before kids, here's how a major weather event was covered before the days of "Live Doppler 378,000" or "Super Radar Laser Kablammo NDX". Dig the simple "board" with Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana...no Chroma key compositing ("green screen")!
