I was done trying to get through each day. I wanted to love Mondays and every other day of the week.Katie Fehlinger
Katie Fehlinger, Former Meteorologist for CBS, Author, Speaker and Content Creator, shared the story behind her title with us on Sunday, December 20, 2020.
Up until September 2019, Philadelphians woke up to Katie Fehlinger delivering the weather forecast on CBS3 Eyewitness News This Morning. But the 2:45 A.M. alarm eventually wore out its shelf life and Katie decided to take the biggest leap of her life. She left what many would consider a dream job as meteorologist in the #4 market to pursue her true version of happiness – the freedom to make her own schedule.
Now, she’s channeling her talents into multiple pursuits: as a burgeoning author, public speaker and through entrepreneurial ventures, including helping beginner video creators become on-camera and production rockstars.
Before switching professional focus and leaving KYW-TV, Katie made stops at WCBS in New York, AccuWeather Inc., and WLVT as a reporter/producer. She’s worked as a regular game day meteorologist for several regional Fox Sports Networks, NESN, YES, and the Big Ten Network. She also appeared on a host of other major networks including ESPN, ABC, FOX News, FOX Business and Bloomberg. In addition to her television resume, Katie has worked extensively in radio, the highlights of which include a multi-year run as KYW Newsradio’s AM drive meteorologist and as newsbreak anchor for Talk Radio 1210 WPHT.
Katie is also the extremely proud mother of 4-year-old twin daughters and solo-produces content for her thriving DIY YouTube channel.
This episode also features an exciting update on our previous guest Melissa Davey! Learn all about what she’s been up to since our interview with her.
Katie’s decision to walk away from a successful TV career was not one that came easily. As she said herself, “Being fearless is terrifying!” The irony is that at the root of fearlessness is simply being yourself, and when you’re able to do that, everything else in life becomes easier. Katie is now blissfully in her happy place!
