Fritz Coleman will hang up his doplar weather button and green screen on June 26th after 39 years.

Coleman's weather reports have been a nightly staple for many generations who grew up in and around Los Angeles. Fritz has always been trusted, likeable and professional on the air, not to mention, witty.   

Fritz, along with Colleen Williams and Chuck Henry, have been on the air together for years.  In fact, the three have been one of the longest-running news anchor teams in America.

Since the pandemic, Fritz has taken to doing his daily weather reports from home, but his forecasts are always relatable and candid.  If anyone could make an "offshore flow" sound good, it was Fritz.

Many may not realize, but Coleman is also a comedian and has won Emmy's in LA for his work not only on NBC4 but on his comedy specials.

According to, Coleman plans to retire to spend more time with family and get back to doing a little comedy work on the side. 

Wishing you all the best Fritz!  You will be missed!
