Michael Kuss quits Global BC to enter a career in Radio! Recent pic with Coleen Christie

Photo taken yesterday of Global Weather man Meteorologist Michael Kuss, with Global anchor Coleen Christie. Both worked at CTV together, both were fired by the local network station, and then both were hired by Global. Michael announced on Global News this morning, he is leaving the Burnaby TV station and has been hired by a radio station in Vancouver. Speculation is Kuss will be joining Rogers Jack FM as they continue to build a new on air team…

Is working at Global that bad?

I assume Michael is leaving simply for a radio job with full time hours.
He been very positive and thankful to Jill Krop for hiring him immediately after CTV fired him (as seen on his twitter).
He definitly has a great personality and will do great in radio. Will it be Jack or Z?

Personally I don’t care. I couldn’t stand listening or watching him. Is it just me or were his eyes always closed. He’s very annoying.

sad to see michael leave, he was funny and kept things light but still professional . if mark goes then theres not much to stick around for.

Michael Kuss was a breath of fresh air on Global (doing the weather on weekends), after many months of teenagers doing the news it was time again for grown ups. I can see that just doing weekends was not enough to keep the bills paid. Good for him to find a weekday job and have weekends available. As someone wrote…if Mark (Madryga) is gone, nothing left to stick around for. Then time to give away the TV. (PS I wonder why someone tunes in here to leave a horrible comment about Michael Kuss, dis you miss your parents’ advice… If you cannot say something nice, keep your fingers off the internet 🙂

He has been the most irritating corky weather man I have ever seen ? See ya Mike

Marie , why bother even making that post ? Suppose you can do better? , this is the problem with social media , to many opportunties for people to hide and make mean and dumb comments .

All the best

I will miss Michael’s forecast and sense of humor and wish him all the best in his new venture to radio…


June 12, 2017 - 12:26 pm

Aline Warner

Will miss him for sure. There’s been way too many changes at Global. It’s time to switch channels.

Should have gotten rid of the princess Gordon, her weather reports are the worst ever with all her mouth stumbles


June 12, 2017 - 2:36 pm

Don

I will miss Michaels wit and smile and Marie needs to get a life.

Will really miss Michael on the weekends. So sorry he’s leaving but happy he has a new job!

I had never heard of Michael Kuss until he appeared on Global weather. Didn’t like him at first but grew to appreciate him over time. He seemed to loosen up a little, too. He has no future at Global until annoying Princess Christy gets dethroned so it was wise for him to leave. My one complaint was that some mornings he looked like he had slept in his suit on a cot behind the desk. I guess that won’t matter on radio. lol.


June 12, 2017 - 5:58 pm

Gayle

Really enjoyed Michael, he did a great job with the weather and was great on the Small Town. I think working weekends was hard for his family. Best of luck on your new indevours Michael.


June 12, 2017 - 6:47 pm

Pamela

I wondered how long he would stay – not enough airtime. I did notice his habit of closing his eyes frequently, but just thought there was a physical difficulty. Liked him and wish him well.


June 12, 2017 - 7:01 pm

Karen Dalzell

If you can’t say something nice don’t bother saying anything at all. Good luck Michael.


June 12, 2017 - 7:36 pm

And perhaps he’ll surface on the soon-to-be-resurrected Rogers TV evening newscasts.

I was disappointed when Michael left CTV. The weather just wasn’t the same. I was very excited to see him on Global. A very intelligent person. Good luck Michael.


June 13, 2017 - 12:11 am

Byeah Bye

I am with you Marie. He must have worked cheap.


June 13, 2017 - 6:43 am

Good luck to you in your future job , loved that you new so much , about so many places, in our beautiful B.C.

Best of luck Michael.
Geez, why all the hate for Christy…She’s professional and certainly part of a good evening team IMHO..


June 14, 2017 - 9:56 am

JARKA JAROLIM

The best weather forecaster , very accurate and grate personality.You will be missed on TV.
His replacement on CTV is disaster.


June 15, 2017 - 7:44 am

James Neighbour

We will miss Michael. Enjoyed his great personality and good sense of humour. He was a great weather forecaster and his knowledge of BC was incredible. We wish him the very best.


June 15, 2017 - 8:48 am

Julie

Michael was like a breathe of fresh air to Global, always smartly dressed too.
Good luck as you move forward.


June 15, 2017 - 10:04 am

Julie Stevens

We will really miss you Michael, I wish you the very best in your new endeavours! May you find that perfect balance between work and family 💕


June 15, 2017 - 11:36 am

Anne Hayden

He is so easy on the ears, unlike some of the women who do the weather, etc for Global in their high pitch nasal voice that grates. Please ladies, take elocution lessons or emulate the calm ear friendlier voice pitches


June 15, 2017 - 6:37 pm

Audrey

We will miss Michael. Can’t take kristie and her almost hysterics over events in southern bc and Okanagan. She needs to know there is more to BC. The north puts up with deep freezes and floods etc but she doesn’t say boo. Bring back Michael full time.


June 17, 2017 - 8:11 am

Trev

Sorry to see Michael Kuss leave Global.
He was a quirky character, but in a good way.
And he knew all the smalltown places well, and seem interested in them.
Good luck to him.


June 17, 2017 - 12:32 pm

Brian

Micheal Good Luck to you.You deserve the best of luck.You probably endured a high degree of difficulty at CTV.I wondered why they would fire exceptional people and keep the misfits.This seems to be the norm on a lot of TV Stations.Take care Micheal and all the best to you and your family.Pay no attention to the negative comments as they are false and unwarranted .


June 17, 2017 - 7:06 pm

Jean

Best of everything for you Michael.
We really enjoyed the short time you had with Global.
You were so personable and very funny.
Thank you. You will be missed.


June 18, 2017 - 8:28 am

Jack

Absolutely, loved Michael, should have been given a bigger role. The old days of lower quality voices still applies. Using all those squeaky voiced teenagers not good. Best of luck Michael. Miss you on small town Michael. As long as​ Jill Krop is running things Global has lost it’s way and our support.


June 18, 2017 - 10:17 am

Carole G

I completely agree with Leslie L. Yvonne is great at everything but the weather. Please find someone for the weekends.


June 19, 2017 - 11:31 am

Well, that was unexpected! The Paul and Kuss Show. Starting next week on JACK-FM.

You actualy need re look at who really likes mark as he say chief weather man. Saw saturday when he was on he finaly got a new sports jacket. I like global but when mark is on I actualy switch cant stand him.Loved Michael

13 – Yes, working at Global is that bad. A dwindling, depressing industry, full of undereducated employees who lack any knowledge or critical thinking skills outside their niche field. Though I heard Keith Baldrey is first-class (if only I knew who he was).


July 3, 2017 - 1:48 pm

Shirley Olson

Love him with the small towns Excellent
Fun to see him on the weekend weather added something special


July 6, 2017 - 3:26 pm

Paulette

I loved Michael Kuss both on CTV and Global. He’s such an easygoing guy and will be just as great on radio. Best of luck Michael👍


July 18, 2017 - 6:35 pm

Just sayin’

Happened to listen to Jack’s new morning show. Wow, talk about boring. Not the least bit entertaining. They talked about Apple’s new emojis for the first hour. And someone needs to teach Kuss how to read a newscast. Who put these two together—small market at best. Won’t bother with it again.


July 22, 2017 - 9:24 am

Rhonda

I was very sorry to hear that Michael Kuss had left Global. He was the best!!!!! He was always very classy and a natural with the weather. We will all miss him. He’s a person who carried a lot of light. So sorry he is no longer there; many people will want him back.
Good Luck Michael – you have more fans than you would ever know.


July 28, 2017 - 7:45 am

Hank Borden

I always enjoyed Michaels forecasts the were basically right on. I was sorry we he was let go at CTV but I think they are hitting rock bottom anyway, and started watching Global which is a big improvement. I was glad to see him on Global. I haven’t got any thing against Christie Gorden , except she is to wishy washy, and seems to over estimate temperatures. Good Luck Michael.


July 31, 2017 - 9:37 pm

Luetzen

I was angry when CTV let Michael go. He was always right on with his forecast. And then they fired Coleen Christie. And that was my beginning of watching Global and I am glad I changed.
Sorry to see Michael go, but he has a family to feed and weekends and the odd fill-ins were not enough. So all the best to you, Michael, and hello Coleen. I am so glad to see you again.

Derek Carr

I liked Mike’s quirky humour but i think some did not get his humour as it is deep and not
shallow or slapstick. Don’t like Christie too prissy and says “certainly” all the time..very
grating on the nerves..


August 3, 2017 - 7:08 pm

Bern

I thought he was intelligent got us to pronounce Osoyoos correctly. When he was on CTV he was the 1st meteorologist they had now they have gone back to weather girls who just point and read. Clearly CTV has gone downhill. I hope he gets the hours and does well.


August 6, 2017 - 11:17 am

Sharon Whitfield

Sorry to see him go.mGetting a little tired of all the changes.
Don’t like the lady who does the evening weekend news.
Can’t stand her voice.
If they keep changing maybe I’ll change stations.


August 12, 2017 - 11:32 pm

Harry

When a weather person blocks the first 3 of the next 7 days is not THINKING… even when few of the news anchors told him to move out of the way… good to see him go…


August 17, 2017 - 6:52 pm

Paul

I really liked Mike doing the weather !! Rather listen to him then Christy. Wish he replaced her.
He is such a nice man. Mike and Squire are a little alike.


August 28, 2017 - 6:16 pm

Karen

I love to watch Michael and mark conducting weather forecasts. Michael has a good sense of humor and mark is funny. CTV was stupid to fire Michael and I never like CTV news cast anyway, very uptight and boring. Global better be smart to keep mark, a valuable employee. The staff changes lately at global is very annoying. So many new faces, all women. They are not as good as someone like Michael or Steve darling.

Sad to see Michael go and best wishes to his future endeavor.


August 30, 2017 - 8:39 am

Donna

So sorry that Michael is gone. He is very intelligent and very informative. All the best Mike! His new replacement is very annoying & way to animated.


September 28, 2017 - 4:13 pm

I thought he was dry and boring and didn’t connect.I love Kristy Gordon and Mark M
