The Forecast Heats Up With Classic Promos Featuring Meteorologist Wayne Hart [WATCH]
I know a lot of people that think Meteorologist Wayne Hart is well, a heartthrob. Friends, just wait until you see him in these classic television promos for WLKY in Louisville, Kentucky.
Ron Rhodes tells me that Wayne was not the biggest fan of these, but we all did things in the 80s and 90s that we regret. My Madonna performance at the Gibson County Fair comes to mind.
