Janice Dean Biography
Janice Dean is a popular Canadian-born American meteorologist, television show host, and author based in New York City. She is presently a co-host and weather anchor on Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel.
Dean worked in various radio and television stations in Canada and the United States before joining Fox News Channel, including CHEZ-FM and WCBS-TV. Janice was born in Toronto, Ontario, and grew up in Ottawa, and graduated from Algonquin College.
She worked as a bylaw enforcement officer in Canada before commencing her career in television. Dean’s application for the Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society was approved in 2009. The Seal is not a certification in meteorology. The AMS is no longer accepting applications for the Seal of Approval Program, which was established in 1957 as a way to reward on-air personalities for their sound delivery of weather information to the general public.
Janice wrote a series of children’s novels called “Freddy the Frogcaster.” On March 5, 2019, her debut book, Mostly Sunny: How I Learned to Keep Smiling Even on the Rainiest Days, was launched. Similarly, on March 2, 2021, her second book, Make Your Own Sunshine: Inspiring Stories of People Who Find Light in Dark Times was released.
Dean’s father-in-law and mother-in-law, both residents of a New York assisted living facility or nursing home, died as a result of COVID-19 complications. In the aftermath, she blamed both deaths on a State of New York advisory that required assisted living and nursing home residents to be admitted and readmitted without being tested for viruses, and she became a high-profile critic of New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo and the lack of media coverage.
Additionally, Janice blasted CNN, Good Morning America, and People Magazine for doing “puff stories” on Cuomo’s epidemic measures that did not address the nursing home issue. She singled out Governor Cuomo and his brother Chris Cuomo (host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, a weekday evening news analysis show) for their behavior during one of the Governor’s appearances on his brother’s show, calling it “an inappropriate, giggling interview.”
