Amy Sweezey has spent nearly 30 years in broadcast meteorology at radio and television stations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Florida. She left full-time TV news in 2020 and now freelances for several media companies including Spectrum News 13 in Orlando.
For 18 years, Amy was part of the First Alert Weather team on WESH-2 News (NBC) and WKCF CW-18 in Orlando. Her day started at 2 AM, which meant bedtime between 7:00-8:00 PM.
Before Central Florida, Amy lived in the midwest forecasting weather for WWMT-TV (CBS) in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and at WSJV-TV in South Bend, Indiana.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek of how Amy’s day used to begin:
Long before her weather career began, Amy scooped ice cream! That’s right! One of 20 things that might surprise you about Amy is that her first job was at The Frosty Boy in southeast Michigan (where she says, “I made $1.60 per hour and was very excited the day I got a raise to $2.10 per hour.”).
