Brunch with Bledsoe


Just had lunch with new KKTV/Channel 11 meteorologist Brian Bledsoe. We'll have more in the paper on him and the other new faces at KKTV (once they're hired) in a few weeks, but I thought I'd give you a few details on Bledsoe in the meantime:
  • He turns 31 on Friday.
  • He grew up on his family's ranch south of Limon.
  • His grandfather, Carl "Bev" Bledsoe was the Speaker of the House in Colorado "forever."
  • His wife, Dale Ann, grew up in Grand Junction. They met at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.
Bledsoe says he couldn't be happier to be back in Colorado and doing weather at a station he watched growing up.

I, for one, am very pleased with Bledsoe. I never cared for Mike Madsen's mannerisms - especially the way he pronounced the word "temperature" - as if every sylable had equal weight. Bledsoe does a much better job with the new graphics too.

So whats the story at KKTV? Has there been a quantifible decrease in KKTV's ratings since they fired some pretty popular personalities? I know that they've lost some viewers in our household.
