Grey skies are gonna clear up for Erick Adame.
Back in September, the Emmy-nominated NYC weatherman hit turbulence after losing his job at Spectrum News NY1 when someone sent his boss X-rated videos of him from an adult webcam site.
While Adame disclosed he had been compulsively chatting with other men on these webcams, some of the videos were recorded without his knowledge and sent to his employer and family members.
After revealing he had been terminated, Adame apologized to his colleagues and family for any “embarrassment” he may have caused them, but not for being “sex-positive.”
“I can’t take it back, and I can’t change what I did, but I am getting the professional help I need so I can make appropriate decisions that don’t affect those that I care deeply about, as well as my career, as I move forward in life,” he shared. “But let me be clear about something: I don’t apologize for being openly gay or for being sex-positive—those are gifts and I have no shame about them.”
While Adame filed litigation to force the webcam site to get details of the user who copied his images, the responsible parties have yet to be identified.
At the time, he had been hopeful that another station would hire him with his over 15 years of expertise as a meteorologist, but he’s yet to find employment at another outlet.
Adame isn’t letting this unfortunate situation get the best of him and is being proactive by moving forward in an entrepreneurial fashion.
This week the 39-year-old announced the launch of his new fee-based weather subscription service.
“Get an email with the detailed, yet fun, weather forecast the way only Erick Adame can,” he said in the video message. “I hope I can count on your support as I continue to do what I love to do!!”
For $5 a month, subscribers will get a detailed weather report sent to their email each morning. The communication will include a video of Adame doing the weather report, a checklist of what you may need throughout the day, and supplemental items including: pollen count, rain chances, and fun weather facts.
Anyone interested can sign up to get Adame’s handsome face in their in box by going to his website EricAdameOnTV.com.
Prior to launching the subscription service, Adame was continuing his passion for bringing the daily forecast to viewers by launching his own show entitled “Weather Talk” on his Instagram page.
Adame had initially taken a break from social media following the news of his termination, but returned in January with the news he had started a new relationship.
“I’m a man who wants to be loved, like anyone else would want,” he captioned a photo alongside his handsome new man. “And I’m lucky enough to have found that in 2022 despite everything else that happened. Love you, stud.”
With a new boyfriend and the launch of his latest endeavor, the future looks bright for Adame!

Good luck to him, but weather forecasting is everywhere for free.
I have to agree with you, who in their right mind would add a pay-weather service on top of Hulu, HBOMax, Netflix…when we as the public can get the weather for free at the push of a button.
I have to agree with you!
Does he do it in a thong?
That would be worth the $5 every month lol
remember the naked news broadcasts?

I feel sorry for him and this desperate attempt to get some money coming into the house. He does not look the manual labor type. But hey, it seems only yesterday that I thought the day would never come when people would pay $5 for an 8oz cup of coffee.
ahhhh… he should have launched an onlyfans account and made so much more money
It’s obvious. He needs to lean into the scandal and exploit it. Do the weather like it’s an everyday morning show and nothing is different but without a shirt.
…Or without pants.
It’s stories like this that demonstrate how being famous, a celebrity, or a “media personality” can be extremely problematic. It comes linked to a lot of restrictions – you no longer get to do whatever or be whomever you want without severe and wide-ranging repercussions.
mind at peace.
I downloaded from Google play our local weather app with live video up to the minute maps and stats and more absolutely free. .anytime , anywhere I open my app I get the weather.
I wish the doll well but who is going to pay for what is free and readily accessible? Somebody asked if he would report in a thong….sadly he isn’t hot enough and even if he were, after a week HO-hum.
The vast majority of meteorologists DON’T work on TV. He can easily a job, just not on TV. Gay TV meteorologists are a dime a dozen anyway.
Huh? I won’t even buy the weather apps that cost $1.99. Why would anyone pay per month for something that’s already free?
