Andrea Slobodian — From Mosquitoes to Chinooks

Andrea Slobodian - Shaw TV

Global TV weather gal Andrea Slobodian is on the move. After two years at Global, she has accepted a job with Shaw TV Calgary (that’s the building above) and will be their first ever weather anchor. Gone will be the days when a standard temperature reading appears on the bottom of the screen for Calgarians. The deal was just finalized earlier today.

As for the move itself, Andrea tells ChrisD.ca it will be hard to leave Winnipeg, as most of her family and friends are here. But according to Shaw’s website, working there is like being with family, so she’ll probably be just fine.

Her last day on the air locally will be Friday, September 25. As for taking her famous “…And that’s your forecast” line with her, Andrea notes it’s a possibility.

There is no official replacement to take over the Global weather desk yet.

Good luck, Andrea!

    Let me be the first to say, I am going to miss Andrea. She is the most genuine person I know.

    Nooooo! I love Andrea!

    I think I get Shaw Calgary on time shift, so I’m not too disappointed. :)

    Good luck.

    Andrea will be missed! She was awesome to work with and worked extremely hard at her job. Good luck in Calgary.

  • Andrea

    Aw, thanks guys! You’re too sweet. I loved working with you too & hope Calgary will have the same calibre of co-workers & viewers!

    Winnipeg needs a hot weather person and now we won’t have one (sorry, Sylvia) but it’s true!

  • Bomber Fan

    Global has Lindsay Warner doing weather on weekends. She’s smokin’!

  • Julia

    Congratulations, Andrea! You always make me smile when I watch you… the people of Calgary are going to love you.

  • Viewer

    I’m glad for this.. not the fact she’s leaving, but this post. Media personalities come and go and the stations never say exactly where they went. At least I’ll know now. Have fun out there Andrea! Don’t forget your cowboy hat.

    We don’t get Calgary Shaw TV here, but I suspect she’ll be doing regional segments for all the systems. We have not seen the last of her :lol:

    Andrea you did really good the day you subbed as an anchor.
    And the hot tip about needing paid shovellers for the playoff game, cough, saved my life.
    I thought you’d blow it by being too friendly or meek or screwing up reading, but very professional even for a non-rookie.

    Teri Apostle is gone too. Racking up billions in private debt and putting our economy and Human Rights on a small town dead-end is one thing…but this is too far.

    Shaw, huh? Great for Calgarians – Hope that camera guy above is correct when he says she might do other regional stuff, because now she’ll be able to just wear sexy jeans and heels on air just like Shaw Winnipeg’s Tracy Koga and Joanne Kelly, instead of her grandmother’s hand-me-down business suits from 1953.

  • Frank

    and you are not going to be the last. Global should have informed us.
