You don't need a weather map to know which way the weatherman blows. Longtime KARE-11 meteorologist Ken Barlow, who left the Twin Cities for Boston 4½ years ago, has just landed a new job with the ABC affiliate in Sacramento.
Barlow had been chief meteorologist at WBZ, the CBS affiliate in Boston, before he was let go in March.
It should be noted that the Sacramento station is owned by Gannett, which also owns KARE. Marketwise, it's a significant drop (Boston is the 7th largest TV market; Sacramento is 20th), but the weather in California's capital may make up for the prestige factor.
