CTV News about to get less Cavallarific

According to Coolopolis, CTV weatherman Frank Cavallaro‘s days are numbered, thanks to a decision by management not to renew his contract.

One can guess at why this decision was made: hair not blond enough, boobs not perky enough, insufficient ratings boost from teenage boy masturbation (though I dispute that last one, see below).

But no matter his meteorological credentials or his mad witty-banter skills that he displays with other hosts, Frank has always been a polarizing figure, as evidenced by two Facebook groups: one praising his giant zucchini, another recommending his lynching, that are fiercely competing for membership (28 members in the former, 26 in the latter as of this writing).

Of course, with looks like these, the World’s Top Weather Presenter probably won’t be out of a job long:

Frank Cavallaro

The news also has a funny timing to it. Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the departure of Bill Haugland.

So who’s next off the island?

CTV News personalities

Here’s a quick cheat sheet of CTV News’s big personalities (hey, where’s Rob Lurie?), assuming of course that looks is your only criteria. It’s ordered by seniority, with the newest members on the left. I’m discounting lead anchors Mutsumi Takahashi and Brian Britt (lower left), since I’m pretty sure they’re set for as long as they want the jobs.

UPDATE (Dec. 21): The Suburban’s Mike Cohen has some career suggestions for Frank: either radio or a job at CBC.

    Was it Cavallaro who was once a “serious” reporter, but then made the mistake of doing an investigative report on Sid Stevens and the money he was ranking in from Sun Youth? When Sid Stevens raised a stink, Cavallaro was shuffled down to doing silly, harmless stories like the giant zucchini thingy.
    It might have been another reporter, but I do remember the reporter pretty much losing his position.

    Possibly one of the worst TV personalities I have ever seen. Also on that list is Max Keeping from Ottawa.
