New opening for weather presenter

By Madam Cholet - 27 April 2012 12

Just reminded by the radio presenter that Mark Carmody leaves ABC weather today. Some may cheer and some may actually miss him, but who will replace him?

And what will his final button-hole be?

I reminded Monsieur Cholet just yesterday that back in the day, Morrissey (from The Smiths, not the fashion designer), used to get about with a tree sprouting from his back pocket.

I wouldn’t put it past Mark to try and top that by stapling a tree to his lapel.

What’s Your opinion?

What a blessed relief to not have to put up with his stupid commentary and antics any more.
Mark Carmody cheapened the ABC News and I always put him on mute when he appeared.
Nothing against the man himself, and I wish him well, but all I want to hear is the weather situation; no gimmicks, just the facts.

Good riddance. I got sick of hearing the ABC’s version of Tim Bailey drivelling the “weather report” long ago.

Next cleanup job is to dispose of a laughing boy called Daniel Gibson, from Prime’s so-called weather segment.

The day when Tim Bailey himself leaves permanently couldn’t come soon enough if you ask me.

What happened to the days when the weather was presented without the silly jokes, shouting, or clown antics??

Unsurprising that Mr G is unleashing all the hate on male weather presenters.

Weather on television is obsolete, so of course they need to give it something extra. I frankly have never had an issue with Tim Bailey. That is his genuine personality, he has good backdrops for the reports and features worthy causes during the report.

Gibson has a laugh, sometimes it’s naf but it’s not offensive.

If you’re still actually getting weather from these weather reports, you need to get out of the stone age. If they upset you so, you need to get a life. And in Mr G’s case, you need to understand not everyone on camera presenting can be a busty blonde.

All though I would love to meet Tim Bailey, just so I can punch him in that burnt sausage looking fake tanned face of his. Drips and Drop this you wanker!

the business of the brolly etc etc blah. He’s one of those city flogs that issue condolances to their viewers because it’s raining. Disaster! At least Mark Carmody appreciated rain (and he was a cyclist, too).

Wow… This is soo bizarre, Mr Gillespie, I actually agree with one of your post’s, of course the subject of my thoughts was you… All though I would love to meet Tim Bailey, just so I can punch him in that burnt sausage looking fake tanned face of his. Drips and Drop this you wanker!

Yes, they should go back to having the weather presented by a pulmonarily-advantaged young lady in stilettoes wearing a low-cut top.

Fantastic idea!!

I’ll miss him.

Watching it was painful, but funny.

Come to think of it – are we talking about TV? Do people still watch that?
Can’t you now get more complete and up-to-date news online?
Can’t you now download your favourite shows and watch them whenever is convenient, without the ads?
Why does TV still exist?

Took me a while to work out what he had on for his last show, at first I thought it was some kind of wattle, but no wattles are out quite yet… eventually the shape had me wondering if it was a yellow kangaroo-paw, and so it turned out to be.

Virginia looked very sorry to see him go. I hope we don’t end up with some bland shiny charles sturt graduate.
