Mish Michaels - CBS4

Mish Michaels joined the CBS4 Weather Team in September 2001, contributing to the stationís weather coverage in new Emmy Award winning weather programming featuring two prime-time specials each year. Her weather coverage has taken viewers on a tornado chase in Oklahoma, on a flight into Hurricane Isabel and to the top of Mount Washington in mid-winter.When Michaels is not chasing extreme weather, she heads up the CBS4 Weather Almanac, a yearly publication highlighting New England weather. The almanac is made available to schools at no charge and sold at local non-profit science centers to help financially support their efforts. Michaels also works as co-principal investigator on a $2 million National Science Foundation grant awarded to CBS4 and the Museum of Science, Boston to create an exhibit on short-term weather forecasting at the Museum (scheduled to open in February of 2006). Part of this grant also supports annual teacher conferences developed in part by Mish on various weather topics. To further her own studies, Michaels was awarded a science journalism fellowship to study at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on Cape Cod in September of 2004. The fellowship allowed her to investigate various weather related topics including climate change and ocean/atmospheric coupling. - more available
