Turning on her megawatt smile, she steps in front of the camera and stands in front of the green screen to deliver the weekend weather forecast that predicts two feet of snow.
Meet Teresa Sikorski, the floor leader for the WeatherWatcher living-learning community and on-the-air anchor for the Rutgers WeatherWatcher program. This partnership between RU-tv, the Office of Undergraduate Education, and the Rutgers meteorology program brings weather forecasts every 15 minutes to viewers of the Rutgers Preview Channel. This meteorology major at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences does more than study the weather—she eats, sleeps, and lives it.
Students like Teresa who share a fascination with weather, TV broadcasting, and communicating about the environment have captured the attention of the broadcast industry as they turn their passions into potential careers.
