CBS News WCBS-A/NEW YORK Chief Meteorologist CRAIG ALLEN inks a multi-year contract extension with the station. ALLEN has been with WCBS for over 23 years.
"One of the nicest gifts I could receive for my 50th birthday was the appreciation, trust and gratitude from my friends at WCBS-AM 880," said ALLEN. "I practically bleed WCBS blood. I've been working for this fine company for more than half of my life. The weather changes as fast as forecasters at some stations but I've been here for a quarter century."
"Research has shown that CRAIG’s is the most familiar voice on WCBS Newsradio 880," added WCBS PD CRYS QUIMBY. "He takes his job very seriously, and it pays off in recognition and respect. We regularly receive emails and letters praising CRAIG as the most trusted and most accurate weather forecaster on radio or television, and we’re very pleased that he’ll continue as our chief meteorologist."
