Percy Saltzman First T.V.Weatherman Dies . .
I just read that Percy Saltzman has died at the age of 91. He was Canada's first T.V. Weatherman, and First Person to appear on Canadian Television.
He pioneered alot of techniques in weather forecasting and reporting, which still hold to this day ! He was the first Canadian weatherman to to use radar, and satellite. Percy Saltzman also was the first to report road and forest fire reports.
I remember seeing him on our faithful black and white television . I can still hear his distinctive voice announcing the weather forecast as if it were yesterday. I am wondering if anyone else out there remembers him ?
