WIN weatherman criticises reports

THE dark clouds swirling over Peter Byrne's head erupted on Monday when the WIN weatherman unleashed a storm over incorrect weather reports from southern media.

The veteran weatherman thundered his disapproval during his nightly weather report which airs in Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Wide Bay and Toowoomba.

"Well, the southern media are at it again would you believe, more unprofessional claptrap on what they portray as breakfast television," Byrnesy said.

"Imagine the repercussions if on national television I forecast 200kmh winds for Sydney or Melbourne.

"Hooley dooley, Queensland deserves and demands better," he said.

"Give us the factual information, not the nonsensical gobbledygook transmitted out of Sydney.

"Give us a break.

"It just makes me so angry, how do they get away with it?"

It seems Byrnesy's not the only one upset, with The Morning Bulletin flooded with SMSes decrying Byrnesy's absence from television the following two nights after his internationally-reported verbal tornado.

The Bully understands Byrnesy stormed out of WIN on Tuesday after a disagreement with someone within WIN over his attack.

WIN declined to comment yesterday, apart from assuring Byrnesy would be back on the air last night.

Byrnesy said he missed the last two weather reports because he had a cold.
