Jun 26, 2018

Joining us on this episode of WeatherBrains are guest WeatherBrains Benjamin May and Joe Tankersley. Ben came to marketing as a senior executive at Chateau St. Michelle winery. He left this to develop public safety-related "edu-tainment" programs at Disney in Orlando.  Teaming with Disney Imagineer Joe Tankersley, they managed to get together a huge pot of funding and create a program that successfully improved preparedness behaviors for hundreds of thousands of people. They teamed with FLASH, and through that, connected with many of the big names in our field. Through those connections, both men continue to be involved with NWS safety campaigns.  Also joining us from KMBC-TV in Kansas City is guest panelist Nick Bender. Nick is the morning meteorologist there and the proud father of a new baby boy.  Also,  Ellen Bacca of WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, MI joins us.  Welcome to WeatherBrains!
