    Eric blames a frog, raisin bran, and his weather clicker for this blooper

    Sometimes a three-minute weathercast seems like three hours. This morning on Good Morning Quad Cities, Meteorologist Eric Sorensen had a little bit of a tough time getting through his talk time. The back story: During commercial breaks, Eric usually eats cereal (much like everyone at home). Except today, he probably should have added a bit more milk. Oh, and he says new weather clickers are “on order.” Take a look!

    Pouring hot coffee in this cup lets you visualize climate change

    This morning on GMQC, Meteorologist Eric Sorensen showed off his new climate change coffee mug. When the mug heats up after pouring hot liquid, you can watch the sea levels rise and the land disappear on the map. When the mug cools off, the coastlines return to their current state. Eric admits it is a overly-dramatic way of looking at the climate change crisis, but says “it is a daily reminder that we need to do something about it.” And […]

    For GMQC, there’s only one way to celebrate “National Pi Day”

    Today is March 14th, “National Pi Day.” While pi, is the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet and we could’ve eaten gyros with a side of baklava, the Good Morning Quad Cities team celebrated in a different way. Asked if Jonathan Ketz had ever taken a pie to the face? “Nope, first time.” Sorensen said, “I’ve made it through 39 years on this planet without this happening.” Jonathan, full of surprises, let Eric have it before his defenses could get […]

    30th anniversary of Chicago Bears’ ultimate win

    30 years ago today, Mike Ditka led the Chicago Bears to Super Bowl 20, beating the New England Patriots 46-10. According to Ken DeCoster, a Rockford-area broadcast veteran and Bears Fan, “The Patriots jumped out to a 3-0 lead after Bears legend Walter Payton fumbled in the first quarter. Then, the Bears scored the next 46 points before the Pats scored a meaningless touchdown in the 4th quarter. Richard Dent was named the game’s MVP.” The Bears have only been […]

    So cold, our Meteorologist has a “Get out of Work” note for viewers

    Wind chills are colder than -25 degrees across Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois this morning. So cold that many schools are starting a few hours late. Good news so the kids who have to wait at bus stops aren’t out in the dangerous cold. But for adults? No such luck. No bosses have alerted WQAD that work is starting late. But our morning weather guy, Eric Sorensen, has a solution for everyone who thinks it’s too cold to go to […]

    Doctors say Gonorrhea could become untreatable

    Doctors say that the sexually-transmitted disease Gonorrhea may one day become untreatable. The fear is the disease is becoming resistant to antibiotics. According to an article in the Smithsonian, earlier this year an outbreak of so-called “Super Gonorrhea” in England proved resistant to azithromycin, an antibiotic that is usually administered alongside an antibiotic from the cephalosporin family. It’s important to take all antibiotics completely, even when several different medications are prescribed.
