I’ve dedicated my career to providing viewers the most accurate forecast, and I’m really looking forward to continuing that commitment for the viewers of 7 Eyewitness News. I’m also very excited about bringing The Weather Machine program to schools throughout Western New York to educate our student scientists.”
