Laura Velasquez Hot Midwest Weather Girl (WOOD-TV)
from WOOD-TV 8 in Michigan: Laura Velasquez. (AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal of Approval)I don't know what any of that means.
Why do we have a feature called Hot Weather Girl on VlogHog? The same reason that program directors hire them: viewers.
These meteorologists are highly educated, work long hours, and are passionate about their work. No doubt they deserve their positions.
How many people were interviewed for the WOOD-TV weather position before Ms. Velasquez was hired? The competition is tough for the very few weather broadcaster slots available in any local market. For comparison sake, anybody can blog. Anybody. No college degrees necessary.
That being said, looks are a variable in the hiring process. It's not the only one but it is one.
Whenever I post a Hot Weather Girl post, the hits to my blog go up. Always. No matter who it is.
