Mix 94.1’s “Little Known Facts” about ProNews 7’s Meteorologist Shelly Sites
I will be the first to admit that I am a big fan of Meteorologist Shelly Sites. Shelly can be found keeping us up-to-date on the latest weather conditions in the Panhandle on ProNews 7. Recently, I had a chance to speak with Shelly and she agreed to be apart of our "Little Known Facts" series.
"When we have weather that folks are interested in. I like the feeling of being needed by doing a public service and knowing that people are relying on my weather forecast."
"Bermuda, for my honeymoon."
"I received 'The Golden Drumsticks' at Band Camp."
(Ed Note: Shelly played the drums in High School)
"I am a HUGE Nerd. And Proud of it! I generally love reading fiction, I'm a big fan of The Twilight and Harry Potter series. Also, I like Lord of the Rings, Star Trek and Star Wars."
"Water, The Bible, so I could read it more often, and my Husband."
"I use it mostly for updating viewers on the latest weather conditions. Otherwise, I share little tidbits regarding work or weather facts and sometimes ask what other people are doing."
"I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue and am very good at walking in tall heels."

"A lady, who calls frequently, wanted to know if I would date her nephew, who lives in Kentucky."
"Angela Buchman, who works at WISH TV in Indianapolis, Indiana. She really wasn't an 'inspiration' but more of what I strive to be in a broadcast journalist: Flawless, intelligent, precise and classy."
