WJXT's Rebecca Barry Scuba Dives with TISIRI | TISIRI
www.tisiri.org [cached]
This was Rebecca Barry's (of WJXT) first offshore diving experience in Jacksonville. She was introduced to a three finned sea turtle, a flounder, and many other sea critters inhabiting North East Florida artificial reefs.
...
Aboard the native Diver II included TISIRI's Joe Kistel, WJXT's Rebecca Barry and Joe Drumm, three Spear fishermen, Capt Park, and dive master Ed.
...
TISIRI's Kistel was along to escort WJCT's Rebecca Barry with her first dives offshore Jacksonville and film the days efforts. The other divers aboard were aiming to catch dinner with their spear guns.
Once about 15 miles East of the Jacksonville Coast Capt Parks anchored at an artificial reef he called the "Shadow. The spear fishermen entered the water first and Kistel and Barry entered shortly after.
...
The "Shadow" turned out to be a large barge and the visibility was so good Kistel and Barry could see the entire barge from any position on the structure.
...
Kistel and Barry were surrounded by fish of all sorts and soon came across a resting sea turtle.
...
Regardless the turtle seemed interested in the divers and spent some time observing Rebecca. The divers observed a diversity of life throughout the dive but did not come across any lion fish.
The second dive was on a concrete artificial reef near the Main 14+15 area. Kistel and Barry continued to look for lion fish but again did not come across any.
...
Although Kistel and Barry did not get to see any lion fish; the dives were filled with intersting marine life and provided a pleasant introduction to Jacksonville diving for Barry.

Behind the bright lights of WJXT-TV Channel 4 studios, the fancy satellite maps and weather graphics, the stage make-up and perfectly coiffed hair, Rebecca Barry looks every bit the seasoned TV meteorologist. In reality, the 27-year-old, who grew up in a Georgia town with no street lights, started her TV career while she was still attending graduate school at Mississippi State University (she's also a proud alumna of Jacksonville University). In addition to doing the weather on weekend broadcasts, Barry, who lives Downtown, works as a weather producer at WJXT and fills in for her fellow meteorologists. For more on Barry, stay tuned...
• In middle school, Barry did the morning announcements for the school's TV news program. After learning news reporting was a real job, she decided she wanted to be an anchor. Prior to that she wanted to be an astronaut and/or President of the United States.
She claims to own "the cutest dog on the planet," a chihuahua/pomeranian mix named Baxter after Ron Burgundy's dog in the movie Anchorman.
...
• At 5'4", Barry has a penchant for high heels, though obsession is probably closer to the truth considering she owns more than 200 pairs of shoes.
• Despite occasional phone calls or e-mails from viewers about her poor weather forecasting skills or "frumpy" outfits, she loves her job. "It's so great to wake up every morning and be excited to go to work," she says.

Rebecca Barry at Her Desk
Meteorologist Rebecca Barry takes a break from the science of meteorology and reading hate mail from viewers that don't appreciate the complexities of atmospheric physics to read The Daily Quarterly.
This week, TDQ had the pleasure of talking weather with Jacksonville's Channel 4 meteorologist Rebecca Barry. Rebecca spoke to us about the dark side of meteorology, puts us in our place when we asked about her hero and tells us just how touchy the subject of snowfall in Florida can be.
Here is this week's TDQ Q&A with meteorologist Rebecca Barry:
