CHICAGO – Meteorologist Ginger Zee is an admired personality on ABC-TV, handling the weather reporting from “Good Morning America” to “World News Tonight.” Those in Chicago fondly remember Ms. Zee, when she did weather on NBC5 here. She made a triumphant return to promote her new book, “Chasing Helicity,” at a signing event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop at North Central College in Naperville, Ill.

Ms. Zee was born in California, but grew up in Michigan. Her fascination with weather events started as a child, when she saw a waterspout on Lake Michigan. She got her bachelors degree in Meteorology from Valparaiso University, began her weather reporting career in Flint, Michigan, and eventually landed on the local news in Chicago in 2006. In 2011, she got the call to the big leagues, when ABC-TV hired her for “Good Morning America Weekend,” and in 2013 named her Chief Meteorologist. Her highest profile in that position is on the daily “Good Morning America,” where she is part of the daybreak crew on that show.

Ginger Zee’s new book is the middle school novel “Chasing Helicity,” a semi-autobiography about a young girl who has an affinity for weather events, and the plot is used it as a background for encouraging science study for girls. This is actually Zee’s second book, after her memoir “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One.”

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019.

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things.

The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
