OKC Media Approval Ratings: Emily Sutton

In most places around the country, the local weather is report is provided by a leggy blonde with a large rack.  Here in Oklahoma, we call those Fox 25 reporters.  For the weather, though, that has been man’s work for the entire length of my lifetime.  Until now…

Noted Star Trek enthusiast and chief meteorologist at KFOR, Mike Morgan, has become Oklahoma City’s Branch Rickey by hiring Emily Sutton and giving her the opportunity to actually go on air.  So, it’s kind of cool that meteorology in this state is no longer as chauvinistic as Augusta National, but you can’t just approve of her because she lacks testicles (or you can, I guess, your call).  For those who want more, here are some highlights from Emily’s KFOR profile:

Favorite Car: Ford Taurus!

Sounds like Mike might be progressive when it comes to hiring, but he may still be paying women 70 cents on the dollar like every other employer in the country.

Happiest moment in my life was: Seeing my first “baby”

Typical woman.  Oh wait, there was more to that entry…

tornado on April 22, 2004…in Oklahoma, nonetheless.

I guess that makes sense.

Best movie of all time: Twister!

She realizes that movie stars her competition at News 9, right?

Favorite Book: The Twilight Series…yeah, I said it.

Disapprove.  (Or don’t, your choice–after the jump.)

  1. You youngsters don’t remember Lola Hall, who did the weather on channel 9 in the 50’s & 60’s. She was a true pioneer in women’s broadcasting and was an excellent weather forecaster in Oklahoma’s challenging climate.

      • I’m old enough to remember the day Lola Hall got fired. Jerry Adams was giving her hell on camera about a forecast and Lola, not knowing that her mic was hot, was giving it right back to him in language that would make Vietnam Era sailors blush. Jerry just grinned.

        When they finally cut to Lola, she was all sweetness and light, did her weather cast. And was never seen again in front of the rolling drum marker board.

        What a day!

  2. wtf? why haven’t you tlo-ers been promoting weather gal sarah libby of channel 5? libby has been on channel 5 for 1-3 years now. she’s way hotter that sutton. i actually pay attention to weather broadcasts since libby has been on t.v. thanks to rick mitchell before we thank idiot mike morgan……..

  3. Em rocks! When she is on during the noon livestream, she treats the online viewers to “Awkward Moments with Emily.” You haven’t lived until you’ve seen her Tornado Dance.

  4. Out of all the movies ever made, her favorite movie is “Twister”? The only list that Twister makes for me is “Best Crappy Movie about tornado chasers with some filming in OK starring Bill Paxton”.

  5. Emily Sutton is hotter than August. Ever since she said goodbye to the hair straightener and changed her wardrobe, yum. Plus she’s funny as hell. Who cares if she likes “Twilight”? She’s there to do the weather, you morons. APPROVE.
