Weatherman Michael Schlesinger 4.18

Written by David Green.

Being a TV weatherman isn’t as easy as it seems.

Students learned this last Thursday when Michael Schlesinger, meteorologist at NBC24 Toledo, spoke at Normal Memorial Library in Fayette.

Schlesinger, who has been involved in TV weather forecasts since he graduated from Pennsylvania State University about two decades ago, explained to listeners that workdays can be as short as four hours on a mild day. However, when the weather is extreme, there’s no telling how long he’ll have to stay at the station.
