What Shall We Do About...?

18. Weather Presenters w/ Sam Mac

For decades, television weather presenters have played an important part in our lives - helping us know what to wear, whether or not to hang out washing, and whether carrying an umbrella to work is worthwhile. Recently, however, we've been able to gain all this knowledge with a tap on our smart phones. So, what shall we do about weather presenters? Have they been relegated solely to adding colour on Breakfast television, as they get out and about? Thankfully, I've rounded up the weather presenter on Australia's top rating breakfast television show - Sunrise. Sam Mac has been informing Australia of weather patterns for a number of years now, all while keeping to a gruelling schedule of travel around the nation. But what's incredible about Sam is that he is an entertainer, and extremely good at what he does - evidenced in a nomination for the Gold Logie in 2019. We discuss his career, how much he really knows about the weather, and whether he feels like weather apps will be the end of weather presenters as we know them. You can follow Sam on Twitter @MrSamMac, and on Instagram at @sammacinsta. And as he mentions in this episode, his cat Coco is on Instagram @lifeofmisscoco. And of course you can see Sam on Sunrise, weekdays from 5:30am on the Seven Network. Thanks for listening to What Shall We Do About...?, it means a lot!
