sad news.

Sad news yesterday. Former Edmonton ITV Weatherman Bill Matheson has passed away at the age of 80. Matheson was the weatherman for that station (which is now Global Edmonton) from 1976 to 1999.

As one of many Albertans who grew up watching Bill Matheson talk about the weather on the 6pm news, I am sad to hear that he passed away.

Ah Bill, I loved that guy. And his trademark: "Good evening".

Bill was always the best part of the news. We met him once at Earl’s on Jasper. Just as warm and friendly in person as he was on TV.
