Andy Avalos rocks the Red Kettle


Every day this week (12/2-12/6) from 10-12pm NBC5 Weather Anchor Andy Avalos has been on the famous Celebrity Corner on State and Washington outside the Macy’s Department Store ringing for The Salvation Army. While a humble man himself, Andy is continually asked to take pictures by and with his legion of fans while at the kettle.

My wife and I had a chance to take him from his site to the NBC studio at the end of his shift today, and after my wife Rachel asked about when we might next see snow (she just couldn’t help herself) we were treated to our very own weather forecast spoken perfectly for the coming few days. It just goes to show that while the auto cues are there, the professionals really do know their stuff.

Thank you Andy for your support for The Salvation Army and the many services we provide in the Chicago area!
