New Dad Meteorologist Tom Meiners Overcomes Missing Babysitter. Brings Baby Daughter To Work

New dad meteorologist Tom Meiners babysitter didn't show up for work. So he strapped on new baby daughter and brought her to work at WBBJ.

New Dad Meteorologist Tom Meiners found himself in a tough spot last week.

One that all sorts of parents can relate to.

The babysitter didn’t show.

What’s a parent to do?

WBBJ's Tom Meiners combined job titles a month ago when he became a dad meteorologist.

Took some quick thinking

It’s not like he could call in late when he was expected to be live on the air delivering weather forecasts for WBBJ in Jacksonville, Tennessee.

Way to rally, new Dad!

Way to multi-task! He doesn’t seem to miss a beat–cradling his daughter’s head, responding to her cooing and delivering a solid forecast.

Just one little tweak–Right off the top, he says, “A little babysitting here…”

NOTE TO TOM: Tom, it’s not babysitting when it’s your own kid. It’s called, “parenting.”

I’m sure you’ll figure it out quickly. You clearly have this Daddy thing down.

Meiner and his wife, Evan, shared in an earlier blog post that their baby girl was born June 18th.

Here’s a good look at the gorgeous new member of the WBBJ weather team. Baby Meiners.

They’re choosing not to share her name publicly for now.

Anyone who is as effortless as this little one on camera will, no doubt, be making a name for herself very soon.

This reminds me of another story

This story of this dad meteorologist reminds me of a story from 2018 when meteorologist Susie Martin did the weather with her sleeping son on her back.
