2002: Paying tribute to Bob Baron

48 Throwback: 'Bob Baron - Behind the Radar'

(WAFF) - When you talk about Huntsville television institutions, many minds turn to Bob Baron.

Baron was the number-one meteorologist in Huntsville for years, including several years here at WAFF.

Since leaving 48, from an office in Huntsville, he quietly built an empire, changing the way we collect and present weather information - ultimately keeping you safer.

In 2002, Brad Travis presented a retrospective on Bob's time at the station, the big weather stories he covered during his tenure, and a look at the then-cutting edge technology his company, Baron Services, was creating - and has further improved on in the years since.
