Watch: Jeff Tweedy Reports the Weather in Chicago
He’s got a career to fall back on in case that music stuff doesn’t work out.
Maybe this is a way to get the ratings up on morning news programs: have an indie rock star do your seven-day forecast. That’s what happened in Chicago this morning, and it was certainly more entertaining than early programming usually is.
While Wilco was visiting WGN-TV in Chicago to play a few cuts off “The Whole Love,” frontman Jeff Tweedy swung by the big weather green screen and read the seven-day forecast while the usual weatherman and the rest of the crew laughed off-screen.
“You probably think some virus has swept through the WGN studios,” he said on air, “with only a few of us left to man the controls.”
