Thirty five years ago, John Coleman and others founded The Weather Channel to answer a demand for around-the-clock weather information. He was a passionate meteorologist that helped bridge the gap between the public and weather like never before. Not only was his work an integral part to the creation of the network, he was also the first meteorologist to present weather in front of a green screen and the first morning weather personality on ABC’s Good Morning America.
We will forever appreciate his vision that we continue to this day as the demand for severe weather coverage and hyper-local forecasting is at an all-time high. Without his dedication to meteorology, The Weather Channel wouldn’t exist. Thank you for everything, John. Rest in peace.
