Kappel's last day at KKTV
KKTV/Channel 11 morning meteorologist Bill Kappel will give his final forecast at noon Friday.
He's leaving to work with a friend providing specialized weather reports for big projects like dams, reservoirs, that sort of thing, so the builders know how much water they have to plan for. Odd, but interesting, line of work. He says he may be back to fill in at KKTV from time to time.
Kappel is also, and this is pretty interesting, going to be the assistant basketball coach for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's team. He was all-conference and honorable mention Division II All America when he played at Mesa State. And he competed in the 1996 Olympics in team handball.
