Way more than just the Weather

Get involved, get creative and be seen on TV this summer. 
People°s Weather invites you to take part in My First Weather Report!
  
Calling all aspirant TV stars - now's your chance to appear on the box hosting your very own mini-weather broadcast!
 
People°s Weather  – Africa’s first and only 24/7 weather, environmental news and lifestyle channel – launched My First Weather Report during South Africa’s lockdown and we have seen hundreds of brilliant weather enthusiasts deliver the weekend weather over the year. Everyone is invited to take part in this fun family activity.
 
Those wanting to participate should email [email protected] after which the channel will revert with a broadcast time and you will be sent a weather forecast and brief by the channel for your selected day. Then simply submit your video clip of you presenting a weather report. 
 
Says Stephan le Roux, CEO of People°s Weather: “The channel strives to make Africa’s nature more inclusive for all and what better way to do that than to use weather, which connects us all, as a conversation starter.
 
“This is a perfect way for the family to keep busy during the lockdown while also providing a fun and educational way for the children to interact with their surroundings - be it indoors or out in their garden. It's great for youngsters to understand the role weather plays in our day to day lives.
 
“It also instils confidence in children as they not only have to appear in front of a camera and deliver a message, but they also get to see themselves on the TV screen!”
