Our newsletter was "On the Scene" in Wildwood, New Jersey, for the kick-off of Meteorologist Kathy Orr's 10th season of "Orr at the Shore" on May 24th at Morey's Piers on the boardwalk. Orr will be broadcasting live from a different local shore point each week, forecasting weather and featuring local attractions and covering environmental issues. Kathy told us: "When we started this 10 years ago, I went to GM Peter Dunn and said, no one broadcasts weather from the shore, let's try it -and now 10 years later, it's really caught on. We were delighted to be with Kathy as she kicked off her 10th season of "Orr at the Shore" and to be a part of what has become, a summer tradition.
CBS 3 Meteorologist Kathy Orr visited Cape May on July 1 to film a segment of "Orr at the Shore.
