Great interview. Duffy is such a breath of fresh air. She is so real. She is so Chicago. She is one of the best meteorologists in Chicago. I love her. Want to see her more on WGN, she is so accurate and personable. I leave CLTV on and stop when I hear her voice. She's a breathe of fresh air.
Thanks for listening! I agree with you.
