Today’s Friday Favorites is all about a college program that’s shaping the best and brightest communication professionals around.

They work long hours, stand out in the worst weather conditions and get blamed if the weather forecast is wrong. That is the life of a meteorologist. On today’s Blab:“Be Seen. Be Heard. The Public Relations and News Show” we talk to Brian Lapis, chief meteorologist at WWLP in Springfield, Massachusetts. Brian has been with the NBC affiliate for 19 years and has heard and seen it all. Brian gives Kyle Reyes of The Silent Partner Marketing and I the inside scoop as to what his job is like, the life of a public figure and what he would say to future broadcasters and meteorologists.
