A huge THANKS to
Ryan McPike,  Charles Thongklin, and  Sarah Walters, KM3-TV, Channel 3 Weathercasters

Omaha-Offutt AMS Chapter President Jeremy Wesely may have found another career opportunity
as he practices giving a weathercast.

The newscast was watched live on the set by the Omaha/Offutt AMS chapter members.
Greg Peterson and Deborah Ward are the news anchors.

The studio looks a lot different than what you see on-air.  Other than the anchor desk area, it is basically an open
room with bare floors, open ceiling and numerous lights, monitors and cameras. It is like this in all TV stations.

nothing on the green wall.  The map image is superimposed on the television screen (note the monitor behind him).
