Heather Tesch’s Meteoric Rise to Stardom
With many feathers in her cap, Heather Tesch is one busy lady! TV anchor, personality, and meteorologist, Tesch is also an avid animal rights campaigner and author. Born in Buffalo, Minnesota, Tesch has managed to keep many of her personal details out of the public domain, and we’ve had to dig deep to bring you the deets on your fave animal-loving weather reader.
Growing up with her family in Buffalo, the young girl thrived in front of the camera and was a born performer, with her mom expecting her to become an actress. However, she soon developed a passion for mimicking the weather reports – even if she didn’t know what barometric pressure was. TBH who does 😂⛈🌎
Gaining a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Minnesota, Tesch followed this up by attending Plymouth State University and graduating with a degree in meteorology – still loving the weather, then! She joined WCCO-TV station in 1996 and presented their weather forecast for a little over two years. Her big break came in 1999, however, when The Weather Channel took her on as one of their anchor meteorologists. Based at their headquarters in Atlanta, Tesch also presented several of their weekly entertainment shows. She left TWC after 13 happy years when the network was sold, and major cuts were made to the staff numbers.
Although she still presents the weather broadcasts for Your Weather Today, Tesch’s path has taken her in a more creative direction, and she has published several adult coloring books. Designed for sufferers of anxiety and depression, HairDoodle: A Calming and Brain-Building Adult Doodle, and her other stress-busting books, are a popular tool in the self-help arsenal. Furthering her writing career, Tesch also writes a weekly slot for the Orange County Post called Heather on Life, Pets, and Weather.
