Meteorologist Scott Hetsko has won this category a few times over the years. He’s an affable guy who has endeared himself to viewers across the region with his upbeat and trustworthy delivery of all things weather — even when he’s forecasting an incoming snowstorm. People grumble about the winter weather, but they don’t take it out on Hetsko, on whom they rely to tell them when the barrage of snow and sleet will end. The region rallied around him a few years ago when he fell ill due to cardiac sarcoidosis — a rare autoimmune disease that attacks the body — and cheered when he received a heart transplant.
