Houston TV reporter does weather and pulls it off!

Sunday night, FOX 26 KRIV reporter Stephen Morgan stayed in the studio and did his job in front of the green screen.

That's right, a reporter filled-in as the meteorologist.

I don't think in 13 years of writing this blog, I've written a post about this happening!

"Left the reporter hat at home because tonight I’m Houston’s meteorologist," Morgan posted on Facebook.

Turns out that Morgan actually has a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Meteorology from Saint Louis University so he could technically go get a job in weather outside of television news.

Not every Houston TV met could do that.

"Finally putting that college degree to work," he posted. "First Houston forecast is in the books! (now let's see if it's right)..."

Maybe we will see more of Morgan's forecasting work. In the meantime, it looks like meteorologist John Dawson took the weekend off.

These days, being a jack of all trades in the TV biz sounds like a smart plan.

So how did Morgan do? As Warner Wolf says, "Let's go to the videotape!"
