Ground Hog Day – Buckeye Chuck @ iHeart Media
Feb 2 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am

Buckeye Chuck, Ohio’s official weather-predicting groundhog, will poke his head out of his winter burrow. He prepares to emerge from his personal den, in the woods behind the studios of iHeart Radio in Marion, to deliver Ohio’s most accurate yearly forecast. Not since the creation of the Doppler Radar has any weather related event been talked about with such majesty and anticipation. According to legend, if Buckeye Chuck sees his shadow at sunrise, Ohioans will have 6 more weeks of winter, so hope for a cloudy morning. He will greet his adoring public, local officials and distinguished reporters during this mass media event at the iHeart studios. At that time, Chuck will deliver the forecast for the rest of the winter. A bountiful feast of complimentary SPAM sandwiches, coffee, and hot chocolate is always served. Why SPAM? It’s “Ground Hog”!
