Announcement from Local editor Mike Semel and Weather editor Jason Samenow:

We are excited to announce that Angela Fritz will join the Post as deputy weather editor. Angela will help Jason Samenow lead the Capital Weather Gang as we look to expand our weather coverage locally and nationally.
Angela is an atmospheric scientist who hails from the city of rock and roll and burning rivers — Cleveland, Ohio. She knew from a young age that weather was her true calling, and ventured to Valparaiso University to achieve a degree in meteorology. After graduating she attended the Georgia Institute of Technology to broaden her atmospheric education. There she specialized in tropical meteorology and climate change.

After receiving her Master of Science in earth and atmospheric science, Angela worked at CNN as a weather producer, forecasting, creating on-air graphics, writing articles and blogs, and managing on-air weather hits.

In 2011 she made the trek to San Francisco to take the position as Weather Underground’s first atmospheric scientist. She would later become their first managing science editor.

Please join us in welcoming Angela when she starts Monday.
