I must have missed something somewhere. Seems like he's been gone at least 3 weeks and I haven't heard anyone say anything about him.

I know he usually does those group travel vacations for KBTX. He did an Alaskan cruise last year. He may be off the grid, depending on the destination. I'm wondering if he hasn't been away for that. I caught part of this evening's weather and heard Kailey saying how she has enjoyed her time filling in. Sounds like Bob will be back soon.

Why would you miss Bob if Kailey is filling in?

Thanks for the inquiries on Bob. He is away on personal leave and presently, we don't have any information on when he will return. We feel fortunate to have meteorologists like Shel and Kailey on-staff to fill-in during this time.

Duff - get his contact info! That's funny stuff. Actually, sometimes in a weak moment, I should post some applicant DVDs we receive. Some will almost, no - WILL top that!

I miss Bob...nothing against the others at all. When it's storming outside, Bob is the voice of authority. Be glad to have him back.

That looks like Mark Mathis. Been laughing at him for years. Then a few months ago, I was out of town watching the news and he was on. Can't recall where it was. El Paso maybe?

You are fortunate to have Bob,Shel and Kailey. Is someone leaving, or are you looking to fill a new meteorologist position?

It is coincidence, as this position was supposed to have been posted a couple of weeks back. While we are always looking to expand our "bench strength," we are planning for expanded weather staff for future programming presently in development. This will most likely be a "dual-purpose position" in addition to weather. We are hopeful for Bob's return over the next two weeks based on what we know. Just appreciate being asked vs. speculation. Will always lay it out there.

I'm glad to hear Bob isn't going anywhere. You can always tell just how bad the weather is going to be based on Bob's state of dress during alerts:

- Coat & tie stays on = no problem
- No coat, but shirt & tie = things may get dicey
- Shirt sleeved rolled up = take cover! Locusts and frogs are on the way!

Really miss Bob. Hope all is well and that he will return! Not to say that I don't like his replacement(s); but, guess we've all just grown accustomed to Bob and like his laid-back, polite style.

Come *home* soon, Bob!

The new guy is a long term sub from the Weather Channel. Bob remains on leave.

I just noticed that Shel Winkley is now the Chief Meteorologist at KBTX which leaves me wondering what the deal is with Bob French. The only thing I find about this is a blog -- http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2013/08/shel-winkley-replaces-bob-french-kbtx-3-bryan-college-station.html. Does anyone know what happened to Bob?

He is no longer with KBTX. I think there was a post on here previously that confirmed it. According to the Mr. Wright, it was a personnel issue. Nothing more was really said about it.

Thumbs up to KBTX (and Bob) for keeping a personal matter out of the public eye so successfully. Its a rare thing today to be able to keep something private private.
