Mike Madson, the former meteorologist for KKTV/Channel 11, will begin at KOAA/Channels 5&30 on Monday. He and KOAA weatherman Mike Daniels will do a weekly series dubbed "Mike and Mike on Mondays," in which the pair will explain how the weather works and some of the unique features and challenges to Southern Colorado weather.
"We’re just so pleased to have him join our team," KOAA president Dave Whitaker said. "With his experience and professionalism, it’s just wonderful to have his abilities augment the already great team we have here."
The series will run during KOAA's 6 p.m. newscast Mondays in May. After that, Whitaker said, Madson will make regular appearances at KOAA. He also teaches fulltime at Pikes Peak Community College and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
Local weather has been hopping lately, with both KOAA and KKTV debuting new Doppler radar weather packages (both use the same data, but it comes through different suppliers and has different features).
