Marcia Yockey


[ hide ]

    Marcia Yockey was a local weather caster in Evansville, Indiana. She debuted on WFIE Channel 14 in 1953, after 10 years of working for the National Weather Service.

    Over the course of her 35-year career, she bounced around from WFIE Channel 14 and WTVW Channel 7 before finally retiring in 1988. She quit one station because she didn’t like a new theme song they picked. Another time she gave notice when her bosses cancelled her annual July 4 televised swim after the forecast.

    A resident of Newburgh, she reached star status for her forecasting skill, irreverent attitude, and colorful personality. She died in 2000 at the age of 77 after suffering for several years from Alzheimer’s Disease.
