How I Ended Up on The Weather Channel
One of my favorite things about my job is the unpredictability of each day. Unexpected events pop up all the time, keeping me on my toes. This week I was invited to appear on The Weather Channel, AMHQ with Sam Champion! I’m incredibly grateful to the wonderful team at Moms Clean Air Force (MCAF) for supporting me and recommending me for this incredible opportunity. As many of you know, I work closely with Moms Clean Air Force as a writer on their site.
I was asked by The Weather Channel to appear in two segments, both of which aired yesterday. In the first segment an asthma specialist was interviewed about the high number of asthma related ER visits in September. I was asked to come up with a few questions for the physician and share stories about what it’s like to raise a child with asthma. I ended up having a very short appearance in this piece.
My big debut came in the second segment, where I had a chance to discuss how to talk about climate change with your kids, and how to raise a responsible child who’s cognizant of how his/her actions affect the environment.
Here’s the clip:
It always amazes me how a half hour interview can be edited down to 2 minutes and 46 seconds! And that was actually long for a segment.
A big thank you to Sam Champion, Maria LaRosa (who is also a mom to 3 boys!) and The Weather Channel for featuring and supporting our growing group of “mom bloggers” (I don’t love that classification, but that’s for a different blog post) and for the willingness to cover important topics such as climate change and the rising rate of children with asthma.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
