The National Weather Association picked their Broadcaster of the Year and they their BOY in Orlando.
WESH Meteorologist Amy Sweezey was picked by the group.
Alan Sealls, president of the National Weather Association, said Sweezey was deserving “for her dedication to her craft, the public, science education and young people.”
Sweezey, a children’s author, frequently gives weather talks to kids across Central Florida.
“The award may represent one year but Amy puts in the effort to elevate broadcast meteorology and humanity all years,” Sealls added.
Sweezey said it was a real honor because there are so many talented meteorologists across the country. “I’m grateful and humbled and will continue to do my best to live up to this top distinction,” she said.
