Behind the Scenes with William Hallman

Posted: Updated:

You may have seen him doing the weather at five o'clock with Meteorologist Hutch Johnson. Moorhead third grader William Hallman came back to Valley News Live for round two.

Since you have all been clamoring for more William, we sat down with him to find out what his life has been like since he first stepped in front of the green screen.

By now you might recognize his face, his gestures, or possibly his voice. The nine-year old dynamo is William Hallman, or, if you prefer..."awesome Valley News Live weather kid." Either way, he's a local sensation who hit the big time via valleynewslive.com and youtube after appearing on a five o'clock newscast with meteorologist Hutch Johnson.

"Yes, it's overwhelming. I never thought I'd get this much attention," William told Valley News Live anchor Andrea Larson.

There's no prepping ahead of time for William, he simply gets it. And like any good weather man, he gives viewers a little shtick along with the highs and lows...."Hanging negative"

And puts in a few shameless plugs.... "Cub scout winter camp."

William explain when he fell in love with weather. "What happened is I actually wanted to be a doctor but changed my mind on May 31, 2011 when this tornado happened and that got me thinking about weather and then my intelligence level just skyrocketed."

Combine that with a talent for talking, and some gigantic gesturing, and you are guaranteed to get national attention. Nothing is set in stone, but William has some thoughts...

"I believe me and Al Roker will get along super well. Al Roker tells a ton of jokes and I'm a funny guy too"

Did we mention he's grateful? Quick to praise the viewers who've jumped on the William Hallman bandwagon, and a popular meteorologist... "Without Hutch this day, thing, wouldn't be happening."

"I feel this is great thank you audience for such a great time. I really like you guys, and I am just astounded about all these things that are going on in my life. And all these opportunities that come maybe once in a life time."

William says he has received a lot more valentine's this year, and the principal at Robert Asp Elementary has named him "Student of the Week."
