"Joe Said It Would" Joe DeNardo, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania meteorologist, visits the Bellmar Junior High School in Belle Vernon, PA in 1986.

A fun look back at all of the small town excitement. You would think that Joe Denardo was a Hollywood movie star by the way that the kids were reacting!

Mr. DeNardo mentions in his report what an "outstanding library" & "nice computer center" that the school has.

DeNardo is known for his relentless charitable work for the community. Keeping the spirit of youth in mind, DeNardo would make school visits every Wednesday "with the exception of holidays." He would fly into the school via helicopter and present an assembly for the kids. Traditionally, in return, DeNardo would receive a cake from the faculty of the schools. "We figured it out, and I think it was in excess of 650 schools I've visited in our viewing area," he said. "I've talked to almost half a million students," teaching them about storms, satellites and how to predict the weather.

Joe DeNardo retired from WTAE-TV on January 1, 2005.
