Bill Nye the Science Guy’s old TV sidekick is a climate skeptic – Laments Nye does not tolerate dissent – ‘I don’t think he’d let me on his show now’
It’s a good thing KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson has a plan for life after radio because he’s doubtful that an invitation to reprise his role on the new Bill Nye the Science Guy show is on its way.
Dori launched his acting career on the legendary kids show more than 20 years ago, appearing on several episodes as sportscaster Lance Yardstick. He played the sidekick to former fellow KING-TV personality Pat Cashman, who played Timmy Ticker.
Since Dori, a climate-change skeptic, does not exactly see eye-to-eye with some of Nye’s stances, he’s not holding his breath for a call.
“Bill was very, very good to me when I did all those episodes of his show, but, boy, if somebody questions global warming these days …” Dori said. “I don’t think he’d let me on his show now in 2016. I’ve burned every bridge there is.”
