West Tennessee TV weatherman dies

Brian Teigland the weatherman at the ABC affiliate in Memphis passed away yesterday morning from an undisclosed illness. He was only in his early 50's. He was probably the third most popular weatherman in west Tennessee behind Dave Brown at Channel 5 and Gary Pickens at Channel 7. But he started to become better known in recent years throughout the west state when he replaced Dave Brown as the announcer on Jerry Lawler and Cory MacClins local wrestling promotion.

How ironic is it that Memphis Wrestling is leaving 30 to move to MyNetwork50 on the morning of August 9?
