Tonight's Guest WeatherBrain is the founder of MemphisWeather.net, owner of Cirrus Weather Solutions, LLC, and senior aviation meteorologist with FedEx Express in Memphis, TN, Erik Proseus. Erik is good friends with David Drobny @NashSevereWx and they benchmark regularly as our social media work is very similar. Erik covers the 8-county Memphis metro on the web, mobile web, mobile apps, and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Blogger) from a hyper-local perspective under the MemphisWeather.net (MWN) brand. MWN has over 14,000 fans on our Facebook and Twitter accounts alone and they use social media to nowcast every severe weather event that affects the metro (for over 3 years now), and nearly every rumble of thunder. They also have a social media spotter program with NWS-Memphis that is very similar to the one David organized in Nashville.
