When Gina De Vecchio was in kindergarten at Mt. Diablo Elementary School she was always talking about the weather.
De Vecchio says, "I've always had a passion for weather. The 24-year-old Clayton native realized that prophecy in June when she was hired at WMDT-TV 47 News in Salisbury, Maryland as weekend weatherperson on the ABC affiliate which covers the Delmarva Peninsula where Delaware, Maryland and Virginia converge bordered by Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. "Gina came to NBC Bay Area as a weather intern with a great foundation in meteorology," Mayeda explained. De Vecchio spent 10 weeks working with Mayeda on weekends, learning computer graphics systems and the nuances of forecasting from a broadcast television perspective. De Vecchio knew she wanted to get a job "east of the Rockies" so that she could live in more severe weather than in her home state. She sent out over 100 resumes with a tape. "Gina jumped right into forecasting on the Delmarva Peninsula and has already survived her first hurricane (Irene). De Vecchio and the other two station meteorologists worked round the clock looking at satellite radar, wind speeds and tornados that formed while keeping viewers updated. Her crew also provides the news and weather for Delmarva CW 3. De Vecchio is usually on the air Friday and Saturday nights at 6, 10 and 11 o'clock although she sometimes does work in the mornings during the 5-7 a.m. news block. She will be on as often as five times a half-hour.
