WLBZ meteorologist Steve McKay was featured in a United Methodist Church video thsi week about his dual career as a pastor and a TV weatherman.

In the video, produced by United Methodist Communications, McKay explains how the professions are similar.

"Both occupations are really dependent heavily on being an effective communicator," said McKay, who serves as the pastor of the Orono United Methodist Church under his given name of Steve Smith.

"The issues you deal with as a pastor are much deeper compared to perhaps a TV personality," he said. "Weather is important here in Maine ...but that's a different level than someone who's dealing with a life crisis."
