2018 has been the year of change.
As the realm of TV changes I know I have to move with the motion.
This week I started my new career as a sponsorship host on The Weather Network. The 2:40 AM alarm clock has been shut off ! And yes, this means I’m leaving the morning show.
It’s pretty emotional over here ! I truly loved this show; the team, the vibe, the weather !
I’ll miss it all. Especially when the big snowstorms hit. Those mornings were the best. It was high energy looking at traffic backed up for kilometres across the GTA, school cancellations being announced and your snowy videos rolling into our newsroom. I love it!
I know our viewers rely on us for the details. And I was always ready to deliver them … even if the news was snow !
So what’s happening now ?
I’ll still be on The Weather Network ! And sometimes I’ll make an appearance on the morning show too. But my day to day focus will be working with our sponsorship team and building connections with clients.
This will allow me to bring great content to our channel in collaboration with some of the best companies in Canada.
In the past I’ve worked on projects like this and they have been career highlights for me! Tourism Ireland, Hilton, Blue Mountain, HBC etc.
I love project managing and working with people. This role is totally new to The Weather Network as a full time position and I think it will blend some of my passions really well.
My love for TV and reporting will still flourish…just under some different lights, literally !
I hope to take viewers on some really unique travel experiences, introduce them to fun contests with The Weather Network and bring your great live on location content from time to time.
Thanks for following my career. I truly appreciate every single person who woke up with me for three years on The Weather Network ! It was a blast and I have the greatest memories.
You are in great hands as Emily takes over full time on Monday !
