Todd Gross fired? Indeed, Gross has already been snipped out of WHDH's news team Web page - and his bio purged from the site (hmm, maybe he needs to update his book on How to Become a TV Weatherman).
Broadcaster Todd Gross
I was so sorry to hear that Todd Gross was fired! I always thought he was excellent and very accurate and also seemed like a nice man too; my daughter also liked him and we looked forward to hearing his forecast each day. Pretty lousy thing to do to a person right before the holidays.
I was shocked to hear this news, I am upset. The abrupt nature of his (Todd Gross) fireing is in bad taste. Whdh is off my list and tv. A nasty crew.
I agree, Todd is awesome. He'll get into ch4 or 5. whdh management is probably nasty, not the crew though.
Todd ... we missed you on the last storm!! Chikage and Pete blew THE forecast!!!
They just let the greatest man in the world walk out that door.
This is as sad as TechTv being taken over by comcast, raped, and turned into G4.
Or getting rid of the Phantom Gourmet, and making their own show after 1o years with the show.
TV is a tough business.
God Bless Todd Gross!
WHDH is really mean and bitter to do this to a devoted, sincere, well-loved star of the entire show, as Todd Gross was! He(his professionalism) makes Caterina and Randy look like amateurs.If CH. 7 is into "youth" now, then fire Randy, Victoria, Caterina, Dan Housle, Pete Bouchard, Mike Macklin, Juli Auclair, Ryan Owens, Krista with those beedy old-lady eyes that squint it's scary, they all LOOK over-40, whether they are or not. And the scary stiff botexed mouths of Caterina and Frances look pitiful. (too much makeup too). The best are Linda Ergas, Juli Auclair (too old? maybe not), Phil, Todd, and Tery Casey is nice too. BTW Chikage W. is irritating and makes those stupid faces all the time, oh she is the worst to look at. Deanna Lites is ok but too old too (well over 50 she looks). The new Gretta needs to realize not only is she very common-looking and plain, she is NO expert to style etc. and thinks SHE introduced Massachusetts to style??? what a joke! She needs to go back to cutting hair, her boutique in Copley Place is emptyevery time we go by it, and the woman hired in her Wellesley shop could not even tell me whether the Jimmy Choo purse I bought there was pleather or leather! Real "experts" you hire Gretta. Her salon was cited for unsanitary conditions too. WHO would go there with a million others to select from?? LOL.
Todd's got some AMAZING things going on - visit http://www.toddgross.com and see what he's got up his sleeve!
Wow, that is very emotional towards someone who is a TV commentator and not a personal friend or relative. I liked Todd as a person, he seems like a nice guy. He's also very professional and a very good meteoroligist. But he just didn't do it for me as someone who made me "interested" in the weather. Regardless of what happened between Todd and the station (that is really between them), I think Pete deserves the job because he has earned it as a forecaster and as a likable guy.
I'm going to reserve passing judgement on Todd or channel 7 until I know what happened (as most of you should do). The station may be keeping quiet to protect Todd, or to protect themselves. We just don't know. I haven't read anything from Todd yet either which is puzzling as well. But, until I can make an intelligent and informed comment I'm not going to pass judgement on him or the station. It isn't fair.
Todd Rocked...he was the ONLY meterologiest to predict the Perfect Storm. THE ONLY ONE! I am totally disappointed in WHDH, but as someone who knows someone that worked in that industry, it's totally typical. That industry is nothing but heartless jerks. They don't care about quality, just about the $$$. And you think firing someone a month before Christmas is bad, I know several people in both radio and TV that have been fired the day before Xmas. If anyone is looking to get into radio or TV, I would definitely reconsider...especially radio. It's all run by computers now anyway...
is why i have switched to Fox news
I miss Todd. WHDH blew the forcast for this morning's snow storm. As a result, Westford had school despite over 9 inches of snow!
