As resident funnyman Weather Presenter Chris Mei brings his energy and passion to all his reporting and keeps us laughing in the weather centre.
Chris joined The Weather Network team in 2006, after six years in radio, four years at another television station and, before that, four years in the entertainment world! But broadcasting came naturally to the nerdy kid who gave amateur play-by-plays at road hockey games on his street and Blue Jays home games.
Chris graduated from Mohawk College with an honours degree in Media Broadcast Communications and earned his CMOS accreditation. Chris went on to attend Second City Comedy Improv School in Toronto, then formed a comedy troupe that toured for five years.
What does Chris love about the weather?
I love that the weather always changes so there are never any re-runs…I hate re-runs. I also love that everyone on the planet has to deal with weather all the time so we are all in this together no matter what.
