S4C creates first all-female weather team

Two new faces will be joining the S4C Weather team before the end of the month.

Branwen Gwyn and Tanwen Cray join Alex Humphreys and Megan Williams to create S4C’s first all-female weather team.

Although Branwen from Cardiff began her career working as a presenter on a variety of different programmes, more recently she has been producing and scripting for S4C’s children’s service, Cyw.

Tanwen Cray from the Vale of Glamorgan has just spent the last year studying an MA in Broadcast Journalism at Cardiff University.

“When I saw the ad, I immediately thought – I have to go for that” said Branwen.

“Like everyone, I’m sure – I have an interest in the weather, and the weather has a big effect on my mood!

“I love the sun and any chance I get I’m out in the sun working, sitting and enjoying!

“I’m really looking forward to being back presenting and to the thrill of presenting live. ”

Climate change

Tanwen added: “I have always thought that one of the best jobs in broadcasting is presenting the weather because it is an opportunity to communicate with a wide range of viewers.

“We all love the weather! The weather now covers such an important topic as well as climate change.

“I can’t wait to get started, and I was so excited when I found out I got the job. ”

Branwen and Tanwen will be appearing on our screens from late May.

The weather is part of the S4C News service and is broadcast from the BBC building in Central Square, Cardiff.

As I have said elsewhere, I hope that they have a good knowlege and understanding of Meteorology. Saying that we all like weather is just not good enough! Also, a robot could read off Auto-cue and cost less!!

Do you have the same requirements of male forecasters? I don’t care whether they are meteorologists or not. I just want to know what the weather will be like near me. You talk about cost but want fully qualified meteorologists. You know that would be a pricier option?
Also a presenting robot would cost a fortune, along with the programmers required to programme it. Unless you just mean text-reading software. Which I’m sure would have massive viewing figures.

Angharad Mair’s daughter, jobs for the girls as well . S4C, the gene pool is getting smaller and smaller and reflected in endless so called celeb programmes, rather than stuff of substance these days. I liked Chris Jones, where’s the totty for us women then? Maybe he will turn up on Seleb Oci Oci Oci,…who was that pioneering manager who actually heard that pitch and said we have to turn it into a tv programme🤣🤣🤣 must have been on drugs.
