KOMU | TV 8 2006 - 2008
Anthony's on - air Meteorology career began in Columbia, Missouri while he was still in college. He started filling in on the Today Show's local morning cut-ins. After a few months of practice, he was offered the coveted fill - in weekend weather anchor position. From there he went from being on - air a few times a month, to becoming the regular weekend weather anchor every weekend. While in college, he was able to learn the science of weather, but more importantly, he was able to see how difficult it really was to try and deliver a weather report in a precise, accurate, & easy to understand way. While at KOMU, Anthony was able to practice in a real live studio with professional teachers, broadcasters, and educators. They all knew their stuff and were kind and patient enough to work with all of the students! Anthony loved his time at KOMU & if he had the chance one day, he would definitely return! This is the place where Anthony first realized, "My dream is coming true!"
