Over the last several months, popular NBC4 meteorologist Doug Kammerer has been sporadically doing his weather spots on location around the DC area, using a popup green screen. Combining with a second meteorologist back at the NBC4 Washington studio (usually Frederick County’s own Amelia Draper), Kammerer does the weather and then interviews or shines a light on local community members who he finds important.
The unpredictability of the live shots has given the weather reports more personality – such as Tuesday’s rendezvous at an ice rink. Kammerer was on location at SkateQuest located in Reston, Virginia. Kammerer tried to play hockey with some of the local kids and I’m going to go ahead and let you guess what happened next.
Yup. Doug goes in for a shot and totally wipes out. As you can see, the kids were very excited about Kammerer’s miscue. Kammerer expertly played it off by putting his arms out like he’s Superman. Totally intentional, you guys.
Later on Twitter, Doug did correctly point out that he scored, which is all that really matters.
I went down, but I scored!!!! Ouch https://t.co/cT3AvwUy8N

Tuesday’s weather report was held at the ice rink to promote the upcoming Winter Olympics on NBC and give a shoutout to Vienna, Virginia ice hockey player Garrett Roe. Roe, who is close friends with former Capital Andrew Gordon, was named to the United States Olympic Hockey Team. The former Kings draft pick currently plays in the NLA (Switzerland) with EV Zug.
Kammerer spoke to Coach Roe, Garrett’s father, who taught his son and instructs the Reston Raiders, a group of eight-year-olds.
“I almost kicked you off because we don’t let anyone on the ice in street clothes,” Roe said to Kammerer.
According to Andrew Gordon, Roe arrived in South Korea today for the Olympic games.
Vienna, Va. represent!

Good luck, Garrett!
