  • The Factor Halloween Pumpkin is BACK!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    For those of you who have been coming to the Blog for years, you know that every October Bill O’Reilly’s gang puts out the Factor Pumpkin with the finest mini chocolate bars/candy in the land…

    I was on scene for the momentous occasion, and have the pictures to prove it! :)

    Caught with my hand in the Candy Jar!  :)


  • Freddy enters the "no spin zone!"

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    Hope your weekend is going great!  Weather is quieter today.  That cold front that brought the severe weather on Thursday for parts of the South has cleared the coast and behind it we have MUCH cooler air for the eastern half of the country.  Our heat went on in the house this morning for the first time this fall.  This will be a quick shot of cold air as warmer air is on the way starting Monday.

    The West is quiet, and Southern California remains warmer than average and dry.  This is obviously not helping the drought or the wildfire danger, so this area remains on alert.

    In other news, this week Mr. O’Reilly posed with Freddy in the “No Spin Zone” and I just had to share it with you.  I think I will get this framed and put it on my wall!  ;)

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Hey everyone!

    Incase you missed it, Freddy was in Primetime Friday night with my friend Megyn Kelly!  It was a frog-tastic interview!

  • My favorite #GotFreddy picture so far…hint: it's a "Special Report!"

    Hi everyone!

    I’ve been on a Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard campaign this past week!  My amazing friends at Fox (both at the FNC and our Fox affiliates) have been so generous helping me spread the word about Freddy.

    Bret Baier was one of the first people to read my second book, and wrote a beautiful review of it on the back of the book:

    And he sent me this picture of him reading Freddy to his boys Paul and Daniel this weekend.  I have to tell you, I teared up!

    Aren’t they all so handsome?

    Had to share!

    Have a great rest of your weekend.


  • "Weather Ready Freddy" is sweeping the Nation!

    Hi everyone!

    I just wanted to check in and say hello.   It’s been so much fun “hopping” around town bringing Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard to all my friends in television and radio!   Here’s a a few pictures of some folks you may recognize reading Freddy!  ;)

    Thanks to all of YOU for your support!
