Life[edit]

In her own words, Kerrie has described her life with the following statement;

"I've been with ITV over 12 years. I joined the Weather Department in October 2002. Someone offered me the chance to work alongside Jon Mitchell and I just couldn't resist! My first 'proper' job was here in Leeds - working as a Continuity Announcer for the ITV Northern Regions. I started as a trainee (reasonably) fresh from University in 2000.

Everyone here at Calendar is friendly and approachable and you get a real sense that the programme is a team effort - which it is! Oh, and we get free coffee - the rush hour commute is worth it when there's real caffeine waiting at the other end.

As for my career highlights - I once had to report from the inside of a hot air balloon with the hot air going in! And I came down a fireman's pole Bridget Jone's [sic] Style for a report once - but thankfully kept my knickers out of shot....for that one. Every day at Calendar I laugh out loud at least once. Smile and the word smiles with you!"[5]
