After 39 years of telling Angelenos about the rain and shine to come (mostly shine), KNBC/Channel 4’s lead weathercaster Fritz Coleman is retiring.

Coleman is also a comedian and will be devoting more time to his comedy, as well as his family in retirement.

We sit down with him to discuss the highs and lows of his long career serving Angelenos. His last day on air is this Friday, June 26.
