Stuck in VT 86: Tom Messner

6/23/08: Tom Messner has been delivering the weather with a smile for 18 years on WPTZ/NewsChannel 5.

His grandma assumed he would grow up to be a chatty salesman.  Little did she know, Tom would one day be 'selling' the weather to the masses with his trademark grin.

Messner is so well-known that he can't get very far without being recognized.  That is the thing about being a popular weatherman, people feel like they know you since you come into their living room every night.

What many people want to know is, what lies beneath that jovial smile?  Is Messner legit?  You be the judge.

I, for one, am happy to know Messner is out there representing VT for us on TV shows like Regis and Kelly and the Today Show.  GO TOM!
