WPLG morning meteorologist Julie Durda will be throwing the first pitch at the Marlins vs Mariners game on Saturday. Yesterday she spent some time at Marlins Park with team pitcher AJ Ramos getting tips on what to do to get ready for her big day.
And well, a girl who can pull a Smart cart by rope and flip a huge tracktor tire, can probably throw little a ball. Guess we’ll find out on Saturday at 7pm.
Tix for the game are still available

Looking at my old posts, I can sympathize

In the TV news business you never know when your competitors might become your colleagues. The people in this photo have all collectively worked at every one of the English stations here before getting assembled at WPLG. Well except Gio Benitez he’s at ABC News though you see his reports on WPLG.
L to R: Roland Steadham now WPLG weekend meteorologist, was the chief meteorologist at WTVJ until 2005 and worked at WSVN before that. Trent Aric joined WPLG in 2004 and on occasion went up against Steadham during hurrican coverage in ’04 and 2005. Julie Durda. And former WFOR reporter Gio Benitez now reporting at ABC News.

Julie Durda was on Good Morning America over the weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, substituting for GMA weather anchor Ginger Zee. If you missed her appearance here’s a video

Julie Durda will be forecasting the weather this weekend for Good Morning America. She’s was on Miami’s sports talk radio ‘The Ticket’ this morning to talk about it.
Not entirely surprising or unsual. Scott Padgett was on GMA several times, and rumor has it WPLG allegedly used the opportunity to be on Good Morning America and the national exposure it affords, as one of the selling points to get Julie on their team.
You can see Julie Durda live on GMA this weekend
