D/FW Radio: Record Breaking Year For WBAP WeatherCon
These learning opportunities included presentations on disaster preparedness from the American Red Cross; informational discussions with Bill Bunting, Chief of Forecast Operations at the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma and Storm Chaser, Tim Marshall; a presentation on what to do after the storm by Scott McCollum of McRoof.US; and an interactive discussion with WBAP Chief Meteorologist Brad Barton and WFAA News 8 Chief Meteorologist Pete Delkus.
In addition to the seminar sessions, there were interactive sponsor booths including Raven Response with search and rescue dogs. WFAA New 8 also returned with their giant green screen allowing attendees to see what it is like to be a television meteorologist. The entire WFAA News 8 Weather Team was also on-site during the event.
WBAP’s WeatherCon was presented by McRoof.US and sponsored by Leaf Filter, Willard Heating & Air Conditioning, CutCo Cutlery, Newspray. The event would not have been possible without the great partnerships of the Frontiers of Flight Museum and WFAA.
