Over the years, we have noted that sometimes the stars align and we have reporters and anchors working in a market in which their name is delightfully relevant.

Such as in South Florida, where we competed against Dwight Lauderdale and worked alongside Al Sunshine for many years.

So imagine our pleasure when we ran across a recent addition to the list of regionally or professionally appropriate names.

He’s the newest member of the weather team at Nexstar’s WHBF in the Quad Cities.

Welcome to the station, welcome to “severe weather alley” and welcome to a rather exclusive list, meteorologist Kevin Doom.

Note to viewers: the next time the tornado sirens go off and you tune in to tv to find out what’s going on, you may well literally hear the voice of Doom.

Born to do tv weather.
