April Update

I just finished my first full month on-air at The Weather Network. It was a very busy month and I continued to learn a lot about how to present weather on-camera.

Here's a link to my biography on TWN website.

I'm feeling very comfortable on-camera and more confident with both my weather and Canadian geography knowledge (which plays a big role in our presentation!).

The highlight of the month was being sent to Ottawa to cover a snowstorm on March 18 and 19. It was really enjoyable to have a chance to report on-location from different sites in the Nation's Capital.

 I reported live every 20 minutes from 5 a.m. to just after 11 a.m. on the Tuesday. It was a whirlwind trip. We got to to Ottawa around 9:30 p.m. on Monday night, did a quick live report, and then drove to the hotel. I went to bed around 10:30 and was up at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday morning to start the day.

Though it was a very tiring two days, I enjoyed every minute of it and I hope to do some more on-location reporting during storm coverage in the future.

Before I post my air times for April, I just wanted to let those of you residing in the GTA that I will be at the Oshawa Centre Chapters on April 11 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. signing copies of my novel 60'6": Balls, Strikes, and Baseball Mortality.

I'd love to see you there!
