In an interview with the Thread about the event, Spann said he enjoys these events because he gets to talk with people and hear their stories.

"Everyone has a story," he said, "Sometimes people just need to tell their stories, and I love to hear every single one."

Spann, the state's most ubiquitous forecaster, is the chief meteorologist for Birmingham's ABC 33/40 and for Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa.

Spann said the people of Tuscaloosa are special to him, as he moved to the city in the fifth grade with his mother.

"Tuscaloosa is a special place to me," he said, "we were broke and hurting and they made us feel welcome."
