CANCELLED Huck Boyd Lecture: KMBC's Bryan Busby- The Importance of Local Weather Coverage

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Weather is always a major story in rural Midwestern states, and the practice of forecasting weather and issuing those messages to the public in this age of multiple media channels is making the practice of weather journalism more difficult in some instances.
This will be the topic of the 20th annual Huck Boyd Lecture in Community Media by Bryan Busby, chief meteorologist for KMBC-TV in Kansas City, Missouri. The lecture will be presented at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 31, in the K-State Student Union's Flint Hills Room.
The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion of television meteorologists at 10:30 a.m. Busby will be joined by Manhattan native Matt Hinkin of WATE-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee, and Matt Miller of KSNT-TV in Topeka. They will discuss problems and issues of forecasting the weather.
Both the lecture and panel discussion will feature an opportunity for audience questions and answers and are free and open to the public.
