Charlie Hosler is one of the titans of weather forecasting. In the late ‘50s, his state-of-the-art forecasts were transmitted by microwave from Penn State campus to a local TV station, earning him rock star status with area farmers and impacting weather reporting nationwide. Hosler also left his mark on Penn State, having spent his entire professional career there. In April, he was guest of honor at the annual Wilson Banquet, a program he started as dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. WPSU's Patty Satalia caught up with him there and asked him to reflect on his nearly 75 years at Penn State.
