Aalia Adam to get some experience doing Global TV morning weather

Aalia Adam has been attending "the school" of Global Television in Montreal since she was 17 years old.

"I started doing work with Global when I was attending Champlain College and I never really left," the now 24 year old reporter told me today as she shadowed the dynamic Jessica Laventure during a  Global Montreal Morning News broadcast.

Laventure, of  course, is the extraordinarily talented weather person on Global. But she does a lot more, including regular live reports from different events and activities and  of course her animal awareness features. As she prepares for some well deserved time off, Adam has been tapped to be her replacement for the next two weeks.  Over the course of the summer, Laventure will fill in for the dapper Richard Dagenais  at the news desk providing Adam with another four weeks of forecasts.

"I am excited," said Adam, who has already been waking up at 3 a.m. and heading to the office as part of her training. "I am watching every weather forecaster I can, starting with Jessica, to pick up the lingo. Jess has started my training from zero and she is a great teacher. For instance, one of the tricks I have learned to really waking yourself up is to turn the music on in your car and sing really loud."

Adam will initially get her feet wet in the studio, but she hopes to go on location at some point this summer.
