Default Ask Me About Being a Weatherman

I figure that a lot of people might have questions about what we do/how we do it. I work as a morning meteorologist for the NBC station in Lima, OH, and happen to have a lot of down - time at work. So I'll field any questions.

Yes

Kinda, once you get over the jitters of being in front of the camera (which takes about 6 months or so). Forecasts can be tough and time consuming, though, sometimes... depending on the situation. Around here, the weather is really nuts sometimes...we had a high of 88 on Monday, and a high of 52 on Wednesday.

Not to start. Any broadcasting anchor working in a small market makes anywhere from 18K-25K/yr. Everyone is always really shocked to hear this, but this business is weird. The sky is the limit as to how much you can make in bigger markets... (top 5 markets I've heard of anchors/meteorologists making upwards of a million.)

The hours suck, plain and simple. Our shows are at 6A, 12P, 6P, and 11p. My hours are 3a-12p. The chief meteorologist works 4p-1a. Tonight, though, I'm filling in for him, and that's why I'm not currently asleep.
