WWLP Celebrates 60 Years On The Air

March 16th, 2013 at 8:41 pm by under Weather

Sunday, March 17th, 2013 is not only St. Patrick’s Day it also marks 60 years that WWLP has been on the air. WWLP first went on the air back on March 17, 1953 and John Quill, the station’s very first meteorologist delivered his first weather forecast.

John Quill remained on the air at WWLP for 47 years before retiring in 2000.  Of course, I like many grew up watching John Quill deliver the weather here on 22News. He inspired me at a young age and I learned a lot about weather by watching his forecasts.

I had the honor and priviledge to work with John from 1996 right through 2000.
