Question 1 of 24

How would you react if you made a mistake on-air?

A good response would show that the candidate is humble and able to take responsibility for mistakes. Meteorology is an imperfect science, and in order to be credible, they must admit mistakes when they happen or afterward. A candidate should respond by discussing their ability to recognize mistakes on the fly, such as incorrect numbers or text on their graphics and explain it to the public so they are not misinformed. They should also respond by mentioning that they would be comfortable addressing the issue later with the public so they will continue to be taken seriously.
