Jim Cantore leaving?
« on: August 31, 2008, 03:49:22 PM »
Will Jim Cantore be leaving TWC soon?

Quote from: Wikipedia
There are rumors that Jim Cantore will be moving to MSNBC in 2009, and NBC's Al Roker will take his place

If that is true, I'm guessing there are going to be a few less people watching TWC.  This would not be a good move for the Weather Channel's future.

I hoped that was true. It goes to show you to never trust Wikipedia.

I sure hope Cantore wont leave TWC. It will not be the same without him. (TWC without Cantore =  :foolish: )

Me neither... BUT I will say that I'd be outraged if Jim Cantore left The Weather Channel, period.

I hope he doesn't leave. He's been on the network for 22 years (I think).

Jim Cantore is the legend of TWC. People turn to him during severe weather and hurricanes. He's not leaving unless he himself chooses to leave, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Judging from his presentations he seems to enjoy himself at TWC.

I don't buy it.  Why would Jim decide to go from The Weather Channel to frickin' MSNBC?  And why would Al Roker take his place, when he isn't even a meteorologist, but a weather presenter?

I would definetly stop watching The Weather Channel, if Cantore left.  End of.  That's one of the only ways TWC could possibly get any worse.
