    The funny thing is Meredith was supposed to be named Jeannine (although the comedienne spells it Janeane). Her delivery nurse was named Jeannine and I didn’t like her…I didn’t want to think of her for the rest of her life whenever I spoke to My Daughter.

  2. Sean ZimmermanJul 3, 2022 at 10:53 pm


    Meredith is a wonderful person. Outgoing, radiant smile (like sunshine) honest, joyful energy. She is outright beautiful and a blessing!

    1. Steven MatthewsMay 28, 2023 at 11:15 am


      Hello to Meredith,

      I don’t see her enough on 12 News. She is quick witted and sharp. Also she dresses so smart, and she’s factual and accurate in reporting. I enjoy seeing her and wish her much success.

  3. DilDec 6, 2021 at 2:46 am


    I just want someone to fix Meredith’s hair so it doesn’t stick to her head; find some clothes that don’t have cleavage or look like she belongs on some street corner, and shave her enormous ego down to size. She reminds me of Lily on the Adams’ Family!

    I’m also wondering why she can’t keep a job. Could it be her ego? She worked for 6 different stations and 3 newspapers in just 10 years. Since she didn’t stay in any job longer than 2 years, I’m thinking it is just about time for her to move on again. Maybe they’ll find someone who doesn’t love the camera so much.

  4. Jerrold FeldmanNov 12, 2021 at 12:07 am


    News 12 should dump their other weather people and use her exclusively.

  5. DanNov 7, 2021 at 1:56 am


    Very unreasonably hateful towards her. If she absolutely sucked then I might not care as much. She doesn’t seem like she has a big head she pretty much reports the weather. I always honestly liked her hair. She puts a lot of time and effort into it and it doesn’t look bad. Most people in the media put a lot of products into their hair.

    Most people on the network have moved around quite a bit. In fact, to get hired on-air you have to have a minimum of 2 years I think working on air.

    The comment about her being flirty towards one of the newer meteorologists is a bit obscured I don’t think she’s flirting. She seems to be talking like most of them do when they’re working together. Another comment was about her clothing. Her clothes aren’t that revealing. She’s not coming in in a bikini or anything like that or with a lot of cleavages. I’m not so sure why people are so concerned over a lady who does the weather on TV and don’t even know her personally.

    I have seen some very self-absorbed people in the media and I don’t see it with her. Maybe I’m missing something. Should she sit there and hate herself? Just put her head down and mope around?

    Meredith is an excellent meteorologist…very smart, well-spoken, intensely beautiful. Well dressed and his clothing fit super nicely — some of the off-shoulders are ‘wow’ as do any that are red…double wow, stunning. Keep up the good work. Always a pleasure to watch and listen to.

  7. AnonymousOct 9, 2021 at 3:29 am


    I do not think you people know how bad you hurt someone when you say these nasty things about someone. You know a lot of people read pages about them to see what they say and make sure people are not spreading disinformation about them.

    When you say these disgusting things about how bad her hair looks, how she just contributes nothing to society, that she is prideful, that she can’t keep a job, and claiming she is just flirting with the new guy that stuff is so hurtful if she was to ever read this.

    You don’t understand while you might not see the damage you do since you don’t say it to someone’s face but online you really tear a person down. You injure them deeply. Shame on you all need to repent.

    Try building someone up instead or at least making things constructive instead of just pure insults. You tell people what you think is wrong with them but not how they can improve. You can’t find the positive traits in someone just mock them and be horrible to them.

  8. DanSep 9, 2021 at 2:11 pm


    Meredith Garofalo, with that face and body…she does not have to do the weather.

  9. DonSep 7, 2021 at 1:16 am


    I really don’t know why people are so hateful. Yea, plenty of people on TV get a big ego. It happens. I have seen women who show a lot more. She seems very flirty with one of the newer meteorologists…sometimes uncomfortable to watch that.

  10. RichSep 6, 2021 at 12:43 am


    Meredith is very professional. She does an excellent job with the weather. Anyone that can’t see the good in any person is sad. They have a heart of much hurt and unforgiveness. Let those things go.

  11. YettaAug 6, 2021 at 4:32 am


    Totally agree with the first comment. Watched her when I lived in Santa Barbara. Clothes too tight. Impressed with herself. She reports the weather. Not contributing to society. Needs to get over herself.

  12. RogerJul 5, 2021 at 2:54 pm


    My absolute favorite meteorologist. Weather Nation should have her in the field doing remotes at special events. Like this coming October 26 in Tombstone AZ, the 140th anniversary of the gunfight at the OK Corral.

  13. MattJun 10, 2021 at 1:19 am


    I was wondering if your family ever had a video camera back in the day and still have all the tapes?

  14. DuaneJun 9, 2021 at 2:46 am


    She is the best. I like her reporting. She is why I watch weather nation.

  15. DelaneyApr 8, 2021 at 5:06 am


    She was always doing fine until recently she has been flirting heavily with the new weather boy she’s with. I mean it’s getting hard to watch. She just keeps staring into his eyes, touching him, and being much more flirty than with the other people she’s been on with.

    Other than that she does a pretty good job. Just if you like him then do that stuff off air where we don’t have to see it

  16. Bush FankyleApr 8, 2021 at 4:58 am


    She’s honestly probably one of the least big-headed people on there. I don’t know where people get she is big headed. Most of the criticism on here is just petty insults. I have seen local news anchors more big-headed than her!

  17. Donna L SchuelerMar 12, 2021 at 12:53 pm


    I love her, I think she’s great!!

  18. RainaJan 8, 2021 at 2:09 am


    Always liked her, never really had a problem with her. Don’t see why so many people dislike her.

  19. DaveJul 7, 2020 at 5:05 pm


    Looks like Jeannine Garofolo…actress, comedian. Any relation?
