Jeff Renner, the chief meteorologist for Seattle's NBC television affiliate KING 5, who retired in April, told me, "It really allows us to see some beautiful detail.
KING pays more than $20,000 a year to buy model data from the consortium, which it incorporates into its on-air forecasts. "[Mass] was doing a much better job than the Weather Service, where you were basically getting vanilla ice cream," Renner says.

Jeff Renner - Our KING5 Television Weatherman
KING 5 News meteorologist Jeff Renner recently retired from that long-time post Jeff Renner thinks of his career and life as pre-Mount St. Helens and post-Mount St. Helens. As a reporter for King 5, Renner made several trips to St. Helens, where in 1979 he observed and reported on steam explosions coming from the mountain. Late March, 1980, he flew via helicopter to the volcano with a photographer where he interviewed local residents, worked with engineers and researchers and also lived under "camping" conditions with no warm water for showers. Renner grew a beard at that time, fitting right in to mountain-man mode. Days before St. Helens erupted, Renner returned to the mountain to see the north side bulging. Since engineers didn't think the mountain would blow that soon, Jeff left for Seattle. On May 18th at 8:32am, while inside his Redmond home, Jeff and his wife, Sue, heard a thud on the side of the house. Viewers needed to see what was happening, so Jeff hopped in the King 5 helicopter. As ash spouted, it was tough getting close enough to the volcano to report on the eruption. Coast Guard helicopters forced Jeff's helicopter away from the area. To this day, Renner reflects on the vast size of the blast zone with no trees standing, no vegetation and mud-a lifeless environment. It's like the size of the entire Seattle area, including Federal Way and Tacoma," says Renner. St. Helens became a significant event in Renner's life...a life filled with many diverse interests and opportunities. Childhood As a child, Renner grew up thinking about outer space. His interest in astronomy increased when he visited the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, which heightened his desire to become an astronaut. Fortunately, Jeff got plenty of support from his parents, no matter the dream. "We were a close family. I had extremely attentive parents," says Renner. He was also particularly attached to his grandmother who taught him anything is possible. As Jeff had no siblings, he became close to his Dachshund "Schatzi.
