Apparently a few of you are big fans of the TV reporters wearing hats postings of past and present. Monday’s post was popular. Thank you for checking out the story.
I’m sure it is all about the styles. Some, just like to see what the talent is wearing in the snow. I never wore these great of lids on my liveshots. Just a standard stocking hat. Great advancements in fashion.

A little back story here. I’m not exactly sure how I came to be known as the guy with a blog who puts these posts together. I guess in the days of new media, the ability to see all these Iowa reporters in one spot is fun. I enjoy touching base with old friends in markets I’ve worked or known for way too long.

Keep the submissions coming. I love to see them. Send them to yeagerp@hotmail.com or my Facebook page of Public Paul Yeager. And remember, be safe out there folks.

Reporter in hats are back in style in 2015

It is the most wonderful time of the year. Iowa’s first big snowfall of 2015 seems like a perfect time to feature some TV reporters out in the elements wearing hats. Glad to see so many were protected. Remember, safety first.

Looking for the latest hats? Check out my Public Paul Facebook page. I’ll post hats as they come in on the site.

Brett McIntyre, WHO-TV. He was just a few feet from KCCI for this shot. And was out a little longer as the mast on the live truck was frozen with two rungs to go.

Vanessa is back, this time in a different hat.

Mark wins huge points for this selfie. A better shot than off a TV screen.

See a hat that belongs here? Send it to yeagerp@hotmail.com and we’ll get it into the mix. Thanks to Tony, Romelle and Jesse for the tips.

And this is not the first time we’ve done this. Check out the archives for a few past posts.

Q’s Hats in Review, Prepping for Rocky

The complaining about how much snow we “didn’t” get is taking up too much room in cyberspace. It is time to just enjoy TV reporters and the hats they are wearing out on the elements.

The last post had some doozies. Thanks for the submissions. If you have a photo to submit, send them in an email to me at IPTVPaul@gmail.com or just put them on Twitter @paulyeager.

But one of the best ones came directly onto my Facebook wall. Here is the bar for today. A Wartburg College hat being worn on my old TV station, KWQC in Davenport. Taylor Umland was rocking the orange and black during his morning reports in the QC.

One of my former co-workers at KWQC was Matt Davis. Mr. Matt was a nightside reporter when I started and we would do liveshots without a hat. A certain morning radio duo named Dwyer and Michael’s would razz him on-air about not wearing a hat and looking cold on his evening live reports.

The radio guys decided to send a gift to Matt of a hat, which he would sometimes wear and other times it was just sitting on his desk, ready for the call of duty.

Sticking at KWQC, we bring in Bailey Dietz from her nightside live shot Thursday.

Former TV6 intern and now reporter at WGBA in Green Bay, WI, Jonathan Gregg is in on the action.

Jon is a former board member of the Iowa Broadcast News Association. I’m sure he’s already made plans to attend this year’s convention on April 20 in Johnston at the Stoney Creek Inn.

Now to some of the morning crew.

Arielle Nixon was wondering why she had to take a picture of herself wearing earmuffs. She wasn’t sure what the request was all about, but thanks to Pat Dix for this.

Pat's Tweet.

My little reporter, Levi. That’s a hat OVER his hooded sweatshirt.

Megan Ruether is always a good sport about trying new hats and thanks to Travis Jungling for lighting up Megan Friday morning for this picture.

But it was Megan’s former station that wins the day. You may remember Nikki Newbrough from last year with the space cadet interview subject.

This year she’s gone above and beyond with a sombrero and a friend, Danielle Wagner. I think Danielle is the Ice Princess? Did I get that correct?

Thanks again for the submissions. We’re only a couple of days away from doing it again with Winter Storm Rocky approaching.

The Q-Tiful Hats

Winter Storm Q, at least the name The Weather Channel has given it, is alive and well.

It is also putting reporters out in the field to tell you to be careful, be safe and if you don’t have to, not travel.

I did start a Tumblr blog that is just the reporters and their hats. Check it out sometime.

This blog will still post pictures of reporters wearing hats while out standing in their field.

And finally, WHO’s new reporter is setting the standard we haven’t seen in quite some time. Enjoy the photo of Jodi Whitworth. A big thanks to Lee Rouse for the snapshot. He’s a legend and he did it again.
