Gary England Channel 9

On October 16, 1972, England started to work at KWTV. A few months later, on May 24, 1973, KWTV launched the first radar system specifically intended for television and for a tornado warning in Canadian County during a live cut-in by England.

Channel 9 spectators saw the radar image of a destructive F4 tornado in Canadian County near Union City that caused substantial harm to that tiny town. The Union City tornado was also the first ever documented tornado chase. The Norman National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) put various storm chasers around it to capture the film’s life cycle, which was also a first.

An original video of the 1973 Union City tornado live cut-in by England is still frequently used today in England’s Channel 9 promotions and its severe weather coverage. Together with Enterprise Electronics Corporation, England is acknowledged as initiating the creation of the first commercial weather radar for Doppler.

While the National Weather Service is the only one legally accountable for issuing warnings in the United States, in March 1982, England is credited with issuing the first televised weather radar Doppler bulletin for a tornado.

Some sources argue that there was a previous radar bulletin published by WHIO-TV’s Gil Whitney in Dayton, Ohio during Xenia Tornado, April 3, 1974. WHIO used radar during the Xenia Tornado, however, was a standard weather radar rather than a Dopplerized radar.

He helped create First Warning in 1990, a state map that appeared on the TV screen corner, with counties colored in to indicate storm watches and warnings. England also helped create Storm Tracker in 1991, a computer program that provided the arrival time of severe weather for the audience.

First Warning and Storm Tracker is used throughout the country. He also helped to create I-News, a computer program that has since stopped allowing PC users to receive severe weather alerts and break news alerts on their computers.

KWTV announced on July 23, 2013, that England will leave its role at KWTV to become Vice President for Corporate Relations and Weather Development for Griffin Communications, KWTV-DT’s parent firm (both Griffin and KWTV are situated in the same one-story construction).
