Have you ever dreamed of being on television? Did you dream of becoming a newscaster or to sit at a news desk with your favorite reporter? Have you ever wanted to predict the weather or find out where all the traffic jams were before everyone else? Well one kindergarten student at Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center got to do just that.
In the past year, Brady Hughes, a student in Mrs. MaryJo Gorcyca’s kindergarten class, has become extremely interested in learning about the weather. He also enjoys geography and learning about how the weather is different across the United States. Brady loves reading about hurricanes and thunderstorms.
Brady and his mom, Laurie, were watching Cecily Tynan back in mid-September on her Facebook Live and she commented that they were watching together and that Brady wants to be a meteorologist when he grows up. It was at that point that Cecily Tynan invited Brady to the studio for a tour!
He had the opportunity to see the newsroom where the reporters, editors, and producers work to gather the news. He had the chance to meet Cecily Tynan, play on the AccuWeather board, and sit at the news desk. Brady also enjoyed seeing the production room. He was there when the 4 o’clock news went live, and he had the opportunity to see the job of the producers.
He was able to shake hands with Jim Gardener, fist bump Rick Williams, and see the magic that becomes a news broadcast. Surely this will be a trip Brady remembers for a long time.
