Hearne on the Street: Horner’s Corner & Conquering ‘Invictus’

Who doesn’t love to bag on KCTV weather wonk Katie Horner?

The hits just keep on coming for the meteorologist who passes for the poster child for Channel 5’s ongoing efforts to save people from storms. Despite the fact that any number of those folks – or so it would seem – would rather todie happy watching the lowly Kansas City Chiefs or whatever sitcom/reality show that happens to get interrupted for a weather warning.

Did it ever occur to Horner’s fang-bearing critics that she’s just doing her job?

Thought so, sorry I brought it up.

And for some strange reason some of the dudes here at

    I don’t think Katie’s getting the job done when KMBC gets the viewers.

    IF she were really trying to save people from a tornado, she would tell them to take their portable radio to the basement or a safe place and tune to a weather channel.

    It’s all about Katie. Stick a fork in her with the Live, Latebreaking, Investigating going down the drain.

    Just sayin’

    Once again, the news group will scare you to death with blizzards, ice storms and “stay inside you could be killed” crap, last year they predicted nearly 60 snow/ice hits we had three light snows/and maybe one serious ice night…they never say they are sorry for being wrong, they just show OTHER CITIES WHERE THE SNOW HIT, LIKE DENVER…all day….

    In this bad economy they are a real devil, we need folks going out and shopping and eating and so on…not a good time to say “stay in, you will die if you don’t”…we’ve had maybe two bad snow storms here in 25 years, true we get some ugly grey wet weather in the winter, but not l5% of what they tell you will happen…their should be a fine for being wrong that much, Kattie is not the only guilty party on this one.

    The news folks say “Craig we are just trying to save lives” no you’re not you want tv facetime and ratings that is about all…with that said…promise you will Brian Busby at his favorite grocery store loading up for the big blizzard that will bring 2 inches of snow that is gone is 36 hours or less…again….thanks for keeping our city broke guys.

    Ditto Craig Glazer. I’ve probably watched weather reports in over 200+ cities in my life and nobody…NOBODY, does weather like we do in KC.

    Drove by Price Chopper the other morning before the snows, and it was like geez, folks, do you think they’re going to stop making milk, bread, and eggs? Wouldn’t it be terrible if you had to go without Honey Nut Cheerios or a People magazine?

    Hearne I’m not sure I followed you. You said it was TWO movies. One Rocky and the other a foreign flick, is that right?

    Katie is an idiot. Yes I know she tries to justify what she does. But that doesn’t explain why everyone else can do the same in so much less time. She is a pain in the butt and is not the least bit attractive. Jack is at an age where the eyesight is going a little bit. And Tony is a horn dog.

    Sorry for the late response, Rick. Yeah, a movie within a movie. On one hand it’s an art house type flick but the ending its all about being a sports movie

    Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the composition on your website. But I am using Firefox on a machine running version 8.x of Crashbang Ubuntu and the design aren’t quite satisfying. Not a strong deal, I can still fundamentally read the articles and research for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of hard to apply with the config I’m running. Keep up the good work!
