I was seated next to Earl Henton, KDAL-TV’s news director at the time, when Heatwave came into the studio for his “audition.” Berler was nervous as a cat, never having been in front of a camera before that day. The “Heater” as he would later be called, stumbled through his 5-minute audition. Henton, sitting in the director’s booth, turned to me and said, “There’s our next weather man.” Weather women would not arrive for another year or so. Berler went on to be the butt of many jokes from the likes of Duke Skorich, Bill Cortez and others, but the audience took to Berler and the rest is broadcast history.
