    Hi everyone

    It’s been a busy but wonderful week.  I’m on my way to Philadelphia to do a segment about Freddy the Frogcaster with Mike Jerrick and his crew at Good Day Philadelphia!

    Tomorrow I’m going to be on Houston’s morning program (KRIV),  Austin (KTBC), Dallas (KTVT), Tampa (WTVT) and Atlanta (WAGA) as part of a satellite morning tour, so if you live in any of these areas, please tune in!

    I’ll keep you posted on all the other appearances/events when I get a chance, and I’ve got lots of pictures to share as well!

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Hi everyone!

    Here’s my first official interview with Fox and Friends this morning about my Children’s Book Freddy the Frogcaster:

    The children that came out were my good luck charms!  My friend Melissa Francis brought her two young sons Greyon and Thompson (Thompson deserves a percentage of the book for his amazing SALES PITCH during the interview) and my collegues brought their children as well to keep me company on the curvy couch!


    Special thanks to Greyson, Thompson, Carter, Samantha, Evan,Isabelle, Leah and Madison for joining me in the celebration!

    Tomorrow I will be on Neil Cavuto’s show at 4pm eastern time.  I’m also doing Good Day New York with Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly!

    Brian Kilmeade is going to interview me on his radio show at 11am too so tune in if you can!

    And look who I spotted reading Freddy in studio today during the commercial break:

    Thanks Bill and Martha! :)

    And thank YOU for the support and good vibes this morning! 


  • Look who's wagging their tail over Freddy!

    Hi everyone!

    One of my dreams is finally coming true.   I think I have to pinch myself  (ouch!)

    Freddy the Frogcaster officially arrives on bookshelves tomorrow.  I’ll write a little more about how this all happened this week, but for now I’m just trying to enjoy the moment. 

    I have been so touched by the outpouring of support from all of you on the blog, the Fox viewers and my unbelievable co-workers who have all asked me how they can get the word out about the book.

    It’s not just about publishing a book.  This is more than that. I wanted to have a fun story that has life lessons and is educational.   I think I accomplished that, and if one child says he or she learned something new by reading Freddy the Frogcaster, then I couldn’t ask for more.

    So join me tomorrow if you can for Fox and Friends in the 7am hour!  We’re going to have ourselves a little celebration!

    In the meantime, this lady is one of my favorite people, and the fella next to her is one of my favorite canines!   Even smart dogs will enjoy Freddy – just ask Dana Perino and Jasper!   I think their copy may even get a little “dog-eared!”  :)


    Have a great day everyone!

    See you tomorrow!


  • Bill Schulz's book report on Freddy the Frogcaster!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    It’s been a while, but last Wednesday night/Thursday morning, I was invited back to do Red Eye!  (I think Dana Perino hosting was my lucky charm.  I adore her!)

    The whole show was so much fun.  I’m still giggling with some of the topics we covered. 

    And I was pleasantly surprised to find out Bill Schulz can read!  HA!  He did his own (ahem) review of Freddy the Frogcaster (which is out in stores on MONDAY!)  Check it out:

    Also wanted to remind everyone that I will be doing Fox and Friends on Monday morning in the 7am hour.  I think there will be a lot of young Freddy Fans to take part, so tune in!

    Have a great weekend everyone!
