Frank Field: He Brought Expertise to TV Weather Forecasts

From a New York Times obit by Richard Goldstein headlined “Frank Field, Who Brought Expertise to TV Weathercasting, Dies at 100”:

Frank Field, who as a meteorologist brought a groundbreaking credential to his job as a television weather forecaster in New York, and who also had a long career presenting network programs on science and medicine, died in Florida.

His death was announced by WNBC-TV in New York, where Dr. Field began his broadcast career in 1958.

Dr. Field, a presence on New York and network television for more than 40 years, was not the city’s first popular TV forecaster. But he was different from his predecessors in one significant way.
