FOX News Channel senior meteorologist Janice Dean  is featured on the cover of the December 2014/January 2015 issue of Neurology Now. Dean, who is nicknamed both “The Weather Machine” and “Weather Queen” by her FNC colleagues, opens up about her Multiple sclerosis and how Neil Cavuto helped her get through the diagnosis.

When I told Neil that I had MS, he calmed me down and promised I would be okay… When Cavuto decided to go public with his disease, he received the full support of Roger Ailes, president of the FOX News Channel. When Ailes asked Cavuto about the worst case scenario for his MS prognosis, Cavuto said he might someday need a wheelchair. Ailes calmly replied, ‘Then we’ll build a ramp for the set.’

CNN’s Brian Stelter has turned “Reliable Sources” into the smartest Sunday show, according to a new feature on Mediaite. Stelter, who founded TVNewser, discusses booking guests, the blogging generation and catching colleagues off-guard.

Sometimes I’m going to make some of my colleagues uncomfortable. That comes with the territory of reporting on the media. There were times when I had to write about my colleagues at the [New York] Times. I broke the news that Nate Silver was going to ESPN. The Times colleague in me felt really bad, but the media reporter in me felt really good.

“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace celebrates his 50th year in media by speaking with Business Insider. Wallace discusses his career and explains why he doesn’t like to have specific plans.

I think you have to make judgments at each [opportunity] as to whether this is the right way to go or the wrong way to go but to sit there and to say, “Here’s where I want to be at that point” — I think you’re setting yourself up for disappointment or frustration because your timeline and the world’s timeline don’t often mesh.

“When President Kennedy helped form the Green Berets he knew that some day they’d be needed,” Ailes went on to say. “The values and principles that lead you to go in harm’s way willingly are unique American traits. The people in this room — particularly the Green Berets — have my greatest respect because they are prepared to risk everything for an idea, and that idea is called America.”

Janice Dean Interviews New Fox News Correspondent Anna Kooiman

Janice Dean got a new office-mate this week: Anna Kooiman, who is the newest addition to the team at Fox News. On her blog, Dean interviewed Kooiman, who will cover health and fitness for FNC:

My other passion is fitness. I like to compete in triathlons and marathons. I ran distance on the track team at UNCW. And I was an exercise instructor in Charlotte. My favorite class is Turbo Kick.  Read more
