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:

Hobbies?

I am definitely a NEWS NERD. I’m enjoying working for FOX during an election year. Politics can be more entertaining to watch than professional sports or reality television! 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

Janice Dean On Weather, Motherhood and Sharing Her Life With Viewers

Janice Dean‘s life has undergone some major changes in the past few years: she revealed her battle with multiple sclerosis, got married, and had two children. The Fox News Channel meteorologist talks with Celebrity Parents magazine about how she handles it all:

Will people stop you on the street to ask about the forecast?

It’s funny; we had this discussion yesterday. In short, yes, people do, but I think they don’t realize the stress that comes with forecasting weather. We’ve had a very active year in terms of snowstorms, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. As a forecaster, you want to convey the message, but you don’t want to hype it up, either. You want to make sure that viewers have the information they need to make a decision.

You have two boys, Matthew [3] and Theodore [1]. What has it been like being pregnant on camera?

I loved it. I love sharing that part of my life with the viewers. The only thing is that I don’t like to block the screen!  Read more
