I never noticed how much people “small talk” about weather until I became a meteorologist.
Technological advancements completely changed the way I did my job from 1995 to 2020.
“It must be nice to have a job where you get paid to lie!” – I have lost count of the number of times I’ve heard that “joke.”
When I first started out in TV my goal was to get a job in Chicago but what I quickly learned was you couldn’t get a job straight out of college in such a huge city.
Working through a hurricane is much different than just living through a hurricane.
Did you know that most TV weather anchors do NOT read from a script? Also, there is no such thing as a “normal” schedule in TV news.
“Where do you buy your clothes?” was one of the most-asked questions I ever received during my years of forecasting weather on TV.
There is no such thing as a holiday in TV news. And there are several times each year that no one is allowed to take a vacation.
Since there is no such thing as a “weather boy” there shouldn’t be a “weather girl” either.
Never let someone tell you, “You can’t do it.” Know your limits and know your value.
