Kathy Orr TV Journalist

Kathleen A. "Kathy" Orr (born October 19, 1965) is a meteorologist. She grew up in Westvale, New York, outside Syracuse and is the Chief Meteorologist for the CBS 3 Eyewitness News (KYW-TV) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and provided the 4 P.M., 6 P.M., and 11 P.M. weather forecasts from 2003 through summer 2011. She joined KYW-TV in January 2003 as their chief meteorologist, making her debut on the same night as Marc Howard. Orr has her National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society seals of approval in addition to being an AMS (number 106) Certified Broadcast Meteorologist. She came from WCAU-TV where she worked as a weekend weatherperson. She was reportedly asked to be chief meteorologist at WCAU when John Bolaris left but turned that down when she received a better salary offer from KYW-TV for chief meteorologist there. The offer at WCAU was ultimately taken by Glenn Schwartz. Since becoming the head of the Eyewitness Weather Team, Orr has also helped establish "CBS-3 Kidcasters", where she and various CBS-3 crew members travel to various shopping malls in the Delaware Valley and encourage children of all ages to do a mock weather forecast.

1. Syracuse University Colleges/University

Syracuse University, commonly referred to as Syracuse, 'Cuse, or SU, is a private research university located in Syracuse, New York, United States. Its roots can be traced back to Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1832, which also later founded Genesee College. Following several years of debate over relocating the college to Syracuse, the university was founded independent of the college in 1870. Since 1920, the university has identified itself as nonsectarian, although it maintains a relationship with The United Methodist Church. Syracuse was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1966 but withdrew its membership in 2011 due to diverging views in evaluating criteria between the University and the AAU.
