WBZ And New England Weather
As far back as the early 1920s, parents and kids who wondered if school might be canceled counted on WBZ for the “no-school announcements.” By the early 1930s, we had our own meteorologist, G. Harold Noyes, who came from the U.S. Weather Bureau’s Boston office. Perhaps the best known WBZ meteorologist was Don Kent. Known as the Weather-Bee when he joined WBZ in 1951, Don was here when Hurricane Carol roared into Boston in 1954, toppling the WBZ-TV tower; and for the Blizzard of ‘78. Throughout the years, the WBZ Storm Center was invaluable to listeners, letting listeners know traffic conditions, event cancellations, and where to get emergency assistance.
