He has also worked as a meteorologist at television and radio stations in Erie, Penn., South Bend, Ind., and Chicago.
Larry is passionate about weather and the technology used to predict it. “I’m a perfectionist. I try to get it right the first time, every time,” he says.
Larry has received eight Lone Star Emmy Awards, two of them for best weathercaster. He is a proud supporter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and has hosted the MDA Labor Day Telethon. He also serves on the President’s Council for Lutheran Social Services of Texas.
