KTVU Channel 2 News Director Bill Chapuis says weatherman Bill Martin is “more than anything else a scientist … If there’s something going on, (if) there’s an earthquake, I don’t have a problem asking bill, ‘What’s a strike-slip fault?'” But in this Oakland Tribune profile, Martin says he tries to keep the lingo simple for his viewers. “We’re all really bad when we start out,” he says about those in his profession. “You try to overwhelm people with how smart you are. The older I get, I realize people don’t really care … Nobody remembers what I say. They remember the five-day (forecast), that’s about it.”
