COUNTY BUDGET COMMITTEE APPROVES PLAQUE PURCHASE TO HONOR STEVE NORRIS

The Cumberland County Budget Committee this afternoon approved the purchase of a plaque to honor the late weatherman Steve Norris.

It will head for a final vote by the full county commission in their meeting scheduled for November 20, 2023.

The building and grounds committee unanimously approved the motion on October 24, 2023.

The bronze raised letter plaque will have a picture of Norris with the words “Steve Norris In loving memory of a local radio icon and beloved weatherman 1959 – 2022”.

The plaque would be placed on the old Tennessee Highway Patrol building at the corner of Second Avenue and Main Street next to the old courthouse. Norris used the building for an office to send out weather forecasts.

Steve began on-air weather forecasting at age 17 for local radio station WAEW-AM/FM.

For decades, Steve has provided live weather updates on several radio stations as a certified meteorologist, including his most recent position since 2003 as staff meteorologist for 3B Media stations 105.7 The Hog, 93.3 The Ranch, Spirit 101.9 and 94.1 The Vibe.

Steve passed away at Cumberland Medical Center on September 22, 2022, after suffering complications from pneumonia.
