Kyla Grogan
« on: August 10, 2012, 11:47:49 AM »
I'm not sure how long she's been with TWC officially, but this one probably went unnoticed on here since she does online forecasts and (for now), online forecasts only. I know that I remember seeing her back in April or May doing the forecasts for Tampa. Here's the information on her Facebook https://www.facebook.com/WeatherKyla/info

And here's a video of her:

Kayla was on with Alex 4am-5:30am and did the 7 Day Forecast.
I thought only Meteorologists did forecast segments on TWC, at least on TV or has that changed?
Before Julie Martin was a Meteorologist she only did field reporting and non forecast segments in the studio.
Unless I'm wrong, Kyla Grogan is not a true Meteorologist so I find it odd she is doing forecast segments on TV.

TWC HAS had anchors do the forecast who don't have certificates in meteorology before. :yes: Examples include Marshall Seese, Dave Schwartz, Kristin Dodd, and Jeanetta Jones (the first three which eventually received their certificates during their last few years at TWC).

Apparently she's done work for The Onion in the past :rofl2:

Though back then, if they had to get Julie Martin on, it was a sign that they were extremely shorthanded. Though today she is an actual meteorologist. :yes:

Ok so her not being a meteorologist is not a big deal.
It is funny though her last job was playing a news anchor for The Onion News Network.

I don't mind her on air, she seems very professional. However, am I the only one who gets a little mad on the inside when someone just switches to a TV Network and 'acts' meteorologist when they've never done it in their life or have a degree? Or if they just switch to a news anchor job if offered it from being a meteorologist? To me people like that seem to carry an a sign that says 'I'm fake' and are willing to jump ship and abandon weather at anytime. It's just a bit depressing and angry that they can do that. I guess I'm the only one, though.  <_<

I personally don't like to see people doing jobs they aren't qualified for either. :no: Then again it doesn't matter as long as you look good and have a good personality in front of a camera, they wouldn't give a flying flip if you were certified for your job or not. I agree though, she acts like she may know a thing or two and maybe she does and we don't know it. :dunno:

This makes me think of our godawful CBS affiliate WGCL-TV, out of like 5 mets, only one is technically certified (no, it's not the Chief, she's just eye candy just like the last Chief who also didn't have a degree)No wonder this station is laughable. I wish they had of made that 1 certified met the chief, I've read his blog a few times on their site and he KNOWS his stuff. :yes:

Kyla is a pretty common name now-a-days, if you ask me. You should hear some of the weird names at my school. There's a 6th grader named Jagr (yes, I spelled it right) :blink:

Yes well aware, and there were many more too... I was just providing some examples.

Yes, it does drive me nuts.  Here I am working my butt off to get my meteorology degree so I can have a job as a METEOROLOGIST (which is one of the reasons I cannot stand Al Roker), and all she has to do is have TV experience (well, we can make assumptions as to why she has the job).  She doesn't seem too bad, though.

Kayla appears to be a regular on First Outlook. She was on with Alex Wednesday and Thursday.
She's not doing the whole week though.
They should just make it M-F instead of half of the week.
