Henry DiCarlo: Weatherman Hissy Fit on KTLA (Video)
KTLA's Henry DiCarlo Storms off Camera
Henry DiCarlo is not. Happy. The KTLA weatherman was pulling double-duty with an on-location interview, and wasn't enough time to actually deliver the weather. He snippily tells the studio, "When you send a weatherman out to do the weather, but you’re also sending him to do a story, you might want to give him a little extra time, but that’s just me. Anyway, sorry we don't have time for weather, folks; I'm just doing as I'm told."
Henry DiCarlo then throws back to the studio, leaving his colleagues to handle the weather for those who aren't watching the meteorology graphics on the screen.
Back in the studio, anchors Chris Schauble and Megan Henderson are blatantly laughing at Henry DiCarlo's outburst. Not a lot of empathy there in the KTLA studio: "Maybe we'll give him a little cheese to go with that whine out there?"

DiCarlo didn't finish with, "I can't work under these conditions", which is sort of a surprise: you will totally expect it while watching the video below. Yet another reason why TV news won't die: entertaining moments like this, when the inhuman facade of the Big Important Newscast cracks.
