JIM WAS MUCH MORE THAN A WEATHER MAN- HE ALSO WAS A NEWSMAN.

"In the 80's the Challenger exploded. It was Jim who was a pilot who said, Kerry lets go, he says we're going to Cape Canaveral lets go. We ran out to Page Field got in the plane. The camera man Dan Hatcher was with us, we took off we landed there it seemed like 35 minutes after the Challenger had exposed. People were still stunned, they just didn't know what they had seen and we were there covering the story because Jim said- lets go." Return to index of stories...
