Fritz Coleman: Iconic Weatherman, Comedian, Navy Veteran
The Aron Bender Podcast
Aron Bender talks with Fritz Coleman, who spent nearly 40 years doing the weather on NBC 4. In addition to continuing his decades-long run as a stand-up comic he’s also the co-host of the Media Path Podcast. Fritz joined Channel 4 in 1982 after being discovered while doing stand-up comedy. He grew up in the Philadelphia area, went to Temple University in Phillie and Salem College in West Virginia, studying radio, TV and film. He used that education while in the US Navy. In this episode we talk about how joining the Navy instantly earned him his father's respect. During his FM DJ days in Buffalo Fritz tried comedy at an open mic night, and was hooked! A little while later he picked up and drove out to Los Angeles to pursue his stand-up career, and he stumbled into his iconic weatherman role on NBC 4! His popularity exploded in the 1980's during a marketing campaign for his forecasts, "Fritz said it would be like this!" But he didn't forget about comedy. He was on The Tonight Show several times, and still performs on stage.

LA’s definitive weathercaster, with a 37 year tenure at it, Fritz spoke of “lucking” into the day job which has afforded him pursuit of his creative passions: stand up and his one-man shows, one of which garnered a half hour phone call from Marlon Brando hisself, another, an audience with Kirk Douglas, who was in the audience. He’s appeared 8 times on The Tonight Show, with Johnny, Joan, and Jay, won 4 Emmy Awards, served in the Navy, is 35 years sober, a dad, a grandfather, a wise and beloved soul, adored by all who know him, he’s funny, funny, funny and applies lessons learned and a daily discipline to continue thriving, and help others. His current show, Defying Gravity, a dissection of his life over 50 is playing to sold-out crowds. If an opportunity presents to see it, Fritz’s standup, or a meet, anywhere, seize it.
