When it comes to weather, Larry Sprinkle has done it all over the past 36 years, from covering hurricanes on the Carolina coastline, tornadoes in the Piedmont region, to winter storms in the mountains and a few 100- degree days on the weather patio.
Even though he started full-time in 1985, Larry has actually been part of the station since the mid-1970s, when he hosted weekend movie specials and did station announcements and commercials.
Back in the early '80s, Larry was the emcee of the game show Quibble, a special public affairs program with a Jeopardy-type set and a live studio audience. You’ve seen him on telethons, Christmas specials, New Year’s Eve segments and dozens of neighborhood broadcasts.
For the past 23 years, Sprinkle has been part of the Wake Up Charlotte team. He’s there with the latest forecast every weekday morning 4:30 to 7 a.m. and then four times an hour during the Today Show.
Larry can also be seen on the WCNC Charlotte midday news, weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m..
