About Stacy-Ann Gooden
Thank you so much for stopping by. If this is your first visit, I want to officially welcome you to Weather Anchor Mama! My name is Stacy-Ann Gooden, also known as “the mama of the house.”
But, people know me from my work in TV news. I am currently the morning meteorologist for Mornings On 1 at NY1.
I came to NY1 from News 12 Networks, where I served as the evening weather anchor for Brooklyn and the Bronx.
In addition to providing local weather updates, I’ve also presented national weather forecasts for NBC Weather Plus and CBS This Morning Saturday. However, many still remember me as the former Fox 5 Traffic Authority for Good Day New York, prior to becoming a meteorologist.
After my stint at Fox 5, I went on to pursue a career as a weathercaster at Verizon Fios, then known as WRNN.
My on camera experience goes beyond news. I also had a reoccurring role as a news reporter on Fox’s hit series, The Following. I appeared in NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura and American Odyssey, as well as Netflix’s Crime.
Prior to my TV career, I competed and won the Miss New York American United States title. I later competed at nationals and placed top ten.
I also competed in the Miss Universe system, both in my native country, Jamaica and the Miss USA preliminaries in New York, where I placed top 5 and 2nd runner up respectively.
Even though I no longer compete, I still enjoy being involved in pageants. And when I’m not chasing storms, I’m busy running after my two kids. In fact, my family is a common theme throughout my blog.
I’ve come a long way since moving to the U.S. from Jamaica as a child. I once struggled to find my own identity within the American culture. Now a confident and self-assured woman, I want to help my kids find their own identity. I want to teach them that they too can weather the storm when faced with adversity.
About Weather Anchor Mama Blog
That said, I started this blog as a way to document my adventures of balancing career and motherhood in 2011. It became a digital scrapbook providing family and close friends with updates of our baby girl.
As a busy career mom, I didn’t have the time or energy to stay on top of sending pics and other baby updates. So, Weather Anchor Mama has become a great way to kill two birds with one stone. Since then, It’s evolved into so much more.
Weather Anchor Mama has grown into one of the top Multiracial parenting sites over the years. My husband and I, along with our two children, enjoy documenting our memories.
Our series, Lessons for Our Kids aims at guiding them through life. I also like to bring the fun to blogging. My Weather Wise series feature cool weather-related activities that you can try at home with your children. You’ll also me blogging about multicultural lifestyle, career, healthy living, and naturally curly hair. In addition, my husband and I have a Couples Chat series where we talk about parenting and relationship matters.
While we often share parenting tips and fun stories, we also allow our audience to see the embarrassing and imperfect moments as well.
Let’s face it; life is a journey filled with ups and downs. There’s no such thing as living a perfect life. Thanks so much for joining us on this adventure. Please sign up for our newsletter and subscribe to Weather Anchor Mama and My Fun Princess Life on Youtube. Don’t forget to like and comment.
