Chief Meteorologist and Author Ginger Zee.

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.”

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
