'GMA' Meteorologist Ginger Zee Weighs In On Sweater-Gate
Ginger Zee says she dresses very conservatively.
Good Morning America meteorologist and Dancing with the Stars finalist Ginger Zee has given her take on the reporter told to cover up live on air.
“I actually do something when I first start a job; I always dress really conservatively, like ridiculously conservative,” she told Inside Edition.
Zee, who picks her own outfits on GMA, said that what a meteorologist wears is a "huge part of our job. It is how you present yourself. It is what people see first."
KTLA meteorologist Liberté Chan was told to cover up by one of her colleagues after viewers complained about her outfit when she delivered the weather report on Saturday morning.
She took to her blog on Sunday to say that the whole situation was a “joke” and was not ordered by her bosses to cover up.
She wrote: “For the record, I was not ordered by KTLA to put on the sweater. I was simply playing along with my co-anchor’s joke, and if you’ve ever watched the morning show, you know we poke fun at each other all the time."
Zee did express some sympathy for Chan, telling Inside Edition that the embattled meteorologist had another dress but it did not appear correctly on the green screen of her news station and had to change to the outfit in question.
While some complained about her outfit, in Latin America the forecasts and the outfits can get steamy.
Mexico's Yanet Garcia is known for delivering the forecast in an extremely tight outfit.
Arlett Fernandez, also in Mexico, often dons short skirts while pointing out weather patterns.
Office attire experts say women should never wear tank tops, flip flops, or skirts more than two inches above the knee.
