ATLANTA - Conan "The Really Red-Haired" O'Brien has just announced that he has agreed to a contract with The Turner Broadcasting Station (TBS).
O'Brien has signed on to be the new station weathercaster and is really excited since hurricane season is just around the corner.
When asked if that wasn't a demotion from the his old NBC gig where he was the host of the prestigious Tonight Show, Conan shrugged his shoulders and responded by saying that it is all a matter of how you look at it.
He went on to say is the glass half full of vodka or is it half empty of vodka. He laughed and said that he should have maybe said Scotch instead.
O'Brien pointed out that some years ago when he first started in television he was a weekend weathercaster at WFOG Channel 91, in Braintree, Massachusetts.
He said that while at WFOG the weather improved by 25 percent and he was soon offered a job at Boston's WBOS where within two months he had managed to make the weather improve by 31 percent.
Conan said that after that there was just no stopping him. He went on down to Pensacola, Florida, where in just two years at station WCIT he managed to cut the average landfall hurricanes in the Florida panhandle from four to one.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Sad to say the one hurricane was category 4 Hurricane Jezibel which pretty much leveled O'Brien's Pensacola home causing tremendous damage and loss of electricty.]
