WFSB denied new Doppler radar

doppler-radar

The Avon planning and zoning commission rejected WFSB-TV’s proposal to put a Doppler weather radar system on Avon mountain in a 6-1 vote. The commission has rejected the radar because it would be “out of character” with the town and would pose potential health risks to the surrounding residents. A consultant hired independently by the residents claims that the radar will emit harmful radiation to those living around the radar. WFSB officials and a consultant for the town of Avon insist that there is no risk associated with the radar system. Another point of contention between residents and WFSB is the noise from the proposed system.

WFSB planned to install the radar on 375 Deercliff Road and it would replace the radar system that is currently at Bradley International Airport.

Evan graduated Cum Laude from Emerson College with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

I’ve Been Sober 3 Years Now…

Ann Baldwin is a PR consultant and former NBC30 anchor. Watch her incredibly candid interview with WTNH’s Ann Nyberg about her alcoholism and recovery. It’s gripping and informative. Kudos, Ann.

Tina Martin Says Farewell

An update to our post announcing that Tina Martin is leaving WFSB. She writes:

The station and I have mutually agreed to part ways. I have had a tremendous run at WFSB. From general assignment reporter to Tina Around Town features reporter to weekend morning anchor….winning local and national awards along the way!!   I appreciate the opportunities I have been given in my 6 years. The viewers have been amazing to me and I thank them for welcoming me into their homes. I can’t go anywhere in the state without people telling me how much they love watching me! For that I am so grateful!!! I look forward to bigger and better. My agent has several irons in the fire all across the country. I look forward to exploring opportunities in my hometown of Boston, NYC and beyond.

We Don’t Know the Back Story…

…but Tina Martin is no longer with WFSB. She’s been reporting there since 2008.
Earlier this year she was replaced on the weekend morning anchor desk.
