Best Of 2006

Best TV Meteorologist
Larry Sprinkle, WCNC

Staff Pick

A repeat winner. Forget the perfect hair, forget his history as the Ty-D-Bowl man. What our critics remember, and like best, about Sprinkle — yes, it’s his real name — is his laid-back approach to the weather. It doesn't need to be incredibly complicated, it doesn't have to resonate with whiz-bang technology ... just give us the damn weather report. Sprinkle does so, always with a “regular guy” touch that makes us feel like he’s one of us. Don't think we don’t notice, as well, that Sprinkle is incredibly generous with his time and celebrity, frequently lending both to nonprofit causes that are dear to his heart. We like a guy who’s part of his community and who commits to the things he believes in.
