Julie Atchison

Weather Anchor

Originally from Peterborough, Julie graduated from Broadcast Journalism at Fanshawe College in 1999, and the following year she received a post-graduate diploma in Television News. In 2004 she completed a Meteorology course from Penn State University.

ā€œI started as a volunteer at Rogers Television in London and from there moved to CFPL to intern as a videographer. The weather was always something I was interested in and in March 2000 I interned with Jay Campbell in Weather. We spent every day of my internship focusing on weather systems, trends, patterns, and talking about how the weather works; what an incredible experience. The weather is constantly changing so there is always something new to learn.ā€

She adds ā€œI love my job I get to meet so many people in the community through events, and stories. The best part is that it is always an adventure!ā€

Julie is married to IHRA Alcohol Funny Car World Champion Rob Atchison, and remarkably has developed a love for drag racing!
