Online petition set up in support of Terry Swails

Jan 18, 2008 Full story: Bettendorf News 92

“If drivers carried stickers in their trucks, it would create several problems that would be impossible to control.”

Q: I am very concerned after reading Monday's Ask the Times. Although you stated that Terry Swails still is employed as chief meteorologist for KWQC-TV, I can't help but think the whole thing sounds fishy. via Bettendorf News

I agree. I also agree with getting rid of Paula's show. There must be a lot of expense there that is not needed. Who cares about that show? Or her? Please get rid of that show. Even cartoons would be better than this. Paula is no Katie Couric. And never will be but in this area she sure thinks she is SOMETHING.!

Hey Terry, what happened? Tell me about it. We all miss you. How does it feel to be replaced by some lady bumbling about temperatures, and now some preppy guy with hair highlights and pink ties? You gave Niel a run for his money. What happened, you show up a little hung over one day? Hey, shit happens. Hope to see you on the airwaves soon.

I worked with Terry for six years. Never have I seen such enthusiasm when any kind of weather event was taking place be it in the Quad Cities or half way around the world. I can recall coming in at 5:00am and seeing Terry, still there from the night before tracking an oncoming storm. The man has dedication to his job, the people of that community and the station, evidenced by all the comments here. Just remember, what comes around goes around.

If anybody is interested my non-compete with KWQC is up. I am on to my next project and it is a beauty. Go to terryswails.com and you can see the details. I also want to say thanks to those of you who expressed support on my behalf during this time of transition. I am fired up to get back in the game.

As the Marine Corps took me around the world, I always would log on to see what was going on at home, I always watched Terry's part, made me feel closer to home. Terry Im the Marine that has bumped into you and your wife several times at the airport when you guys would go to S.D.!

Well we can all see now that Terry Swails coming to Ch. 8 meant nothing for the ratings. I for one do not understand the guy's appeal anyway. As for KWQC, hell the station could go off the air and STILL be number on in the QC.

I ASKED Theresa Bryant,WHY SHE IS ONLY A WEATHER PERSON? WHY NOT GO TO SCHOOL AND LEARN MORE? SHE CALLED MY HOME,AND ASK WHAT WRONG WITH HER? DOING THE WEATHER? SHE WAS VERY UPSET,AND MEAN ABOUT IT ON THE PHONE. WHY NOT BE A METEOLOGIST? SHE WOULD NOT TELL ME? SHE SAID, YOU DON'T NEED TO BE ONE,SHE LEARN FROM TERRY SWAILS AND OTHERS. SHE IS A GOOD ACTOR.SHE SAID, SHE WOULD TELL HER BOSS,AND MANY LOSS HER JOB..A VERY BAD PERSON,

What is wrong with you people in your Ivory Tower. Terry is the best weatherman this area has seen in years. Get real. Bring him back. He the best. See if you can do the weather better than him. I'll b

Terry is a great weatherman but they should have let James Zahara go instead. He's not a very weatherman at least at presenting the facts. Terrry is so much better. Now the only one worth watching is Cassie Hieter. I guess for accurate weather I'll watch channel 6

Will watch channel 6 for my news and weather. No reason to watch channel 8.
