They provide you with the most up-to-date information when it comes to the weather and you've seen their coverage online and on TV. However, on Friday, June 21, 2013 The Weather Network team stepped out of the newsroom to do something a little more challenging: Pushing their personal limits to the edge, literally!
The team, which included on air personalities such as Chris Murphy, Jaclyn Whittal, Michelle Nelson, Editor/Promotions Producer Marilyn Nicholas- Dahan, Graphics Supervisor Michael Bergeron and Web Journalist Andrea Bagley, took part in the third installment of the EdgeWalk, Toronto’s tallest extreme urban adventure atop the 360 restaurant, 1, 163ft above the ground in what some call the thrill of a lifetime.
This is where it all begins. Their journey started from the bottom, on the ground level of the CN tower at the base camp, from there they made their way up at the top of the tower where the team was giving safety instructions.
Moments before getting ready and no signs of nerves for these guys!
Everyone's paying close attention to the safety instructions. Soon after it was time to suit up. With the help of the instructors, the team puts on their red walk suits and yellow safety straps.
Strapping up for the open-air walk of a lifetime
A quick team photo before they head out. There's no turning back now as they start walk on the edge of one of the world’s tallest towers. The city of Toronto was at their feet. With clear skies and a breathtaking view, the team experiences a walk of a to remember which started on the south side of the main tower pod, above the 360 restaurant. The walk around the CN Tower lasted for 30 minutes.
