We Want Wes

That was fast. It was just last February when Channel 2 let go morning weather forecaster Wes Hohenstein for no apparent reason. So they bring in Byron Miranda who had an impressive resume with stints in Chicago, LA and CNN. Always though it was fishy that someone with a nice track record like that would make his way DOWN to Houston. I think Channel 2 now realizes it themselves...

As of this morning, Byron was allegedly read his miranda rights (not really but I had to get that pun in there) and told to leave. Though I'm sure Channel 2 wishes him well with his future endeavors they are back at sqaure one.

Solution: Wes is still here in Houston. Still available (though that window is fading very, very quickly), ready to tell morning viewers about the humidity and dew points. Oh wait, they don't report dew points any longer.

Step on it, Skip. Go Wes, young man!


  • You said it best. We stopped watching channel 2 when they got rid of Wes, and now when we do tune in, we hardly recognize anyone. I think getting Wes back would definitely be a move in the right direction for KPRC.
