Gold: Mike Daniels, KOAA-TV Channel 5

For more than two decades, Puebloans have been watching one of their own handle the challenges of forecasting the weather in Southern Colorado and deliver accurate forecasts with style and a few clever plays on words thrown in for good measure. Mike Daniels, a Pueblo native, has been a staple of the Channel 5 broadcast team and when he’s not working on the forecast, he enjoys time outdoors fishing, running or riding bikes.
