Wo sie sind, Art Horn?

Not Horn -- Art Horn.

Wait a minute - I haven't seen Art Horn on the Channel 30 weather lately . . . you don't think he's been replaced by that little dark-haired guy with the curl in the middle of his forehead, do you?? That's a shame. I liked Art Horn just because he wasn't handsome, he was kind of goofy and awkward, and that's how a weather man should be. It was a mini-adventure watching him: he didn't stick to the script, and would often say something "normal", which is weird for a weather guy. And he seemed like a regular guy, instead of a generic vanilla meteorology robot.

I will spare you the blah-blah-blah on the world becoming too homogenized. We need people to be different, to have variety, in order to remain interesting! There. I'm done.

Art Horn will present The Wonders of Weather, a slide show and talk at Mary Cheney Library, 586 Main St., Manchester on Thursday, Feb. 23. The free program will begin at 7 P.M., is open to the public and registration is not required. Light refreshments will be served. For further information, please call Adult Services/Reference at 860-645-0821.

I liked Mr. Horn for the same reasons. Just a goofy guy - a weather nerd and not a regular TV guy. He just told it like it was in his own way. The anti- Jeoff Fox. Where have you gone Art Horn? The last of the weather heros.

Art was a god amongst men....he would actually make weather interesting with his off the cuff comments and goofy antics-it is a shame that 'the Horn' has left NBC....he should be a regular fixture on local TV!!!!!

I just met him at Mohegan Sun on Saturday night - shame shame that he's trying to hit on younger women with those hairplugs of his. He said he's there every weekend, even knew the bartenders. Maybe if you're lucky he'll hit on you too!

What a cheeseball!

Well I think I have found where he has gone to. My husband and I moved to New Hampshire last year and miss the reg stations of Connecticut. While watching the news up here out of Portland, Maine my husband believes that he saw Art giving the local weather report on there. We cant seem to find him anywhere on their site as of yet but my husband did comment that he thought he saw him a few weeks ago as well just isnt to sure about it. I really do hope so he is one of my favs to watch the weather with. He has such personality more then most of the weathermen you see.

I wish he would come back to CT because he was the only one at WVIT that could actually call the big storms correctly. In his down to earth way he would tell you if it was a bad one or not and was usually on the money. He was entertaining in a folksy way, and unlike his replacements, he didn't stand in front of the forcast graphics blocking your view!
