Kait is pronounced Kate but spelled K A I T.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics(it's a government agency so it must be true), the median salary of a Florida meteorologist is $67,000 which is 5 percent below the national average of $87,000.
I don't doubt that meteorologists take their titles seriously but I wonder how they feel about models like Mayte Carranco and beach body experts like Cristina Blackwell doing the weather?
Think about it. If you're a meteorologist, you've gone to college, paid for or borrowed money for tuition, studied, labored long hours and graduated from a four year university to get the title of meteorologist.
Eventually, you get a job after battling it out with veteran broadcasters and up and coming talent. You've made it after years of trials and tribulations. Then, you discover that some station has hired a Victoria's Secret model to read the weather off of a teleprompter.
That's gotta sting.
