Eric Ghila was never a meteorologist, just a “weather forecaster.” But who needs to be a meteorologist anyway?
Eric honed his skills on the radio prior to going to T.V. Unlike many on the small screen, he was genuine. Plus, he had a beard way before they were "cool".
Having a beard before it was cool means he wore it when it was not cool.
At least Eric knew how to spell. And is well respected in both radio and television. How much respect from others do you have? I'm sure you'll say that you don't care.
Plenty of ineffective people are respected by others. Not a true standard.

I recall him on WSGW for was seemed to be a few years. I was in HS at the time, though, and WSGW was not on the top of my listening priorities. But it was always on in my mom's kitchen. Drove me nuts, except for the Paul Harvey segments. They could draw in even the most angst-ridden teen, and I had to listen to find out The Rest of the Story.

She has her own wiki page (grain of salt applies here). She left WGN @ 2009/2010.

Good men, good broadcasters, but the best of all time? No.
