Northern Michigan: Newsmakers Dec. 28, 2008




Traverse City Record-Eagle:

Everybody knows the TV weatherman. Especially when he's been beamed into their homes nightly on 9&10 News since 1991. After a long tenure at the station, and before that at TV 7&4, Dave Barrons will give his final weather report at the end of this year. The senior meteorologist will leave TV to pursue other activities, including math tutoring for elementary students and spending more time outdoors. But for many local television viewers, Barrons will continue to be recognized as the man who brought them the weather. "Nobody is afraid to say 'Hi' to the weatherman," he said. "Everybody has an opinion about the weather." Barrons is comfortable in front of a camera or chatting with viewers. At Miami University, he served on a concert board, where he spoke in front of large groups. There, he earned a bachelor's in political science. He added two master's degrees -- one in political science from Purdue University and another in education at the University of North Carolina. Before his broadcast career, he worked as a school social worker in special education. Now, he plans to return to education, working with his wife, a dyslexia specialist... Dave Barrons goes off-camera (Sun, 12/28)
