A TV Meteorologist Like No Other
ABC 33/40 Meteorologist James Spann
In a mid-sized city like Birmingham, one without major league sports, you have to look to other fields for celebrity. In the Magic City there’s perhaps no one that fills that role quite like ABC 33/40 meteorologist James Spann. He’s a reliable presence on television during severe weather. His social media reach is like that of a commercial brand. And with his catch phrases and trademark suspenders, James Spann is not merely another local TV weatherman. Weld reporter Cody Owens spent a month following Spann and writes about it for the weekly newspaper.
Nick Patterson is the editor for WELD for Birmingham, a weekly newspaper covering news and politics, arts and culture and community engagement in the Magic City. Patterson joins WBHM each Thursday during All Things Considered to discuss WELD's top stories.
