Weather Channel Proposal VIDEO — Meteorologist Kim Perez Gets On-Air Marriage Proposal

Viewers who tuned into the Weather Channel Sunday night were treated to a tearjerker with a side of sunny skies as meteorologist Kim Perez got an on-air proposal from her longtime boyfriend, police sergeant Marty Cunningham. Kim had just predicted rainfall for Florida and the Southeast this New Year’s Eve when Marty stumbled onto the set.

“Hi!” said the mother of three.

“How are you?” Marty asked.

“Good!” Kim replied.

“We’ve been talking about this for a long time, and I love you, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. So I’m asking you today,” he started getting down on one knee, “Will you please marry me?”

“I will,” Kim said, smiling.

Don’t you just love a happy ending?

Kim has been obsessed with meteorology ever since she was a little girl.

“I first realized that gender may be an issue very young,” Kim wrote on The Weather Channel website. “When I told someone I wanted to be a meteorologist, they asked why a nice girl like me would want to study meteors! I didn’t understand the problem until I started looking though books and doing research, I couldn’t find any women meteorologists, not even on TV!”
