Several years ago, did you have a weatherman whose last name was Smith? I think he was also a body builder. I would like to know his full name and where he went when he left your station. This came up during a conversation with a family member. Thanks!

MIKE MOSS SAYS:    Jane,      It's possible you're thinking of Leon Smitherman, who was one of our weathercasters when we had a separate studio and separate newscast for our WB50 (and later Fox 50) broadcast. He is now appearing on KSN television in Wichita, Kansas.
