My wife and I have been watching you for 30 years and you are by far our favorite.
Used to be on the late news, whenever you gave a preliminary sentence of what was to follow on the weather, you would always end your sentence by saying "NEXT" in a deep voice. This provided us with a good laugh and a little levity each night and we looked forward to it. You stopped doing this and we miss it.
Things are often all too serious and the laugh you provided each night was a welcome relief.
