NewsChannel 9 News Director Tom Henderson announced Friday that former Channel 3 Meteorologist David Glenn will be joining the NewsChannel 9 StormTrack Team.

"David and his wife are originally from the Tennessee Valley," said Henderson. "He has been tracking severe weather at WPMI-TV in Mobile, Alabama since 1997. David started his career with WRCB-TV here in Chattanooga in 1991. David and his wife Rebecca are excited about bringing their family back to the community. He is very familiar with the Tennessee Valley's weather quirks and viewers can look forward to his expertise."

Henderson also announced the promotion of Meteorologist Bill Race to Senior Meteorologist.

"Time and time again, Bill has demonstrated his devotion to our newsroom and our viewers," Henderson said. "He's talented, experienced and a great personal friend to everyone at this station, and many in the community."

"With David's hiring, Bill's promotion and Erin Sebree's quick start, the StormTrack 9 Team will lead the market in weather coverage. It will be fun to see just how good these three can be!"

Neal Pascal, the chief meteorologist at Channel 9 for three decades, left the station recently.

John Shearer: Former Congressman Bob Clement Tells Tales Of Elvis, Truman And Billy Graham

Over the years, I have become a little intrigued with the Clement family of Middle Tennessee, and not really for any political reasons.   I remember one time in college in 1980, when I stopped to visit University of Georgia friend and Bulldog golfer Bob Wolcott in Dickson, Tenn.

Naturally, the place became known as the “Pink Palace” but lest ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: This Library Comes Alive

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years. Between the ever-widening Internet, with all of its search engines and infinite resources, I have got about as much use for a library as I would if I read a book about a transgender person. I have neither the time or inclination. Be like trying to teach a pig to sing – the pig always get bored. ... (click for more)
