Mary Ours joined WJAC in March 2016 as the weekday weather anchor for 6 News at Sunrise and 6 News at Noon.
Mary grew about 45 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh in the small town of Beaver Falls, known as the hometown of Joe Namath. Mary went to high school there for three years before graduating from Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in 2008, where she majored in musical theater.
Mary is working on her broadcast meteorology certification through Mississippi State University and is a 2012 graduate of Point Park University. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcasting with an on-camera concentration.
At Point Park, Mary reported, anchored and did the weather for numerous U-View programs for the university. She was also part of Point Park News service where she reported and wrote stories. Mary had the opportunity to study the European International Media in Prague for two weeks while in school as well.
While in college, Mary spent her summers in Philadelphia interning at the Michael Smerconish Program, where she worked closely with the famed producer and on-air radio talent, while also being able to edit columns for the Daily Inquirer. She also worked with Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla at KDKA-TV, where she studied the weather.
Mary has always been interested in helping people ever since she was young, including starting her own event to help victims of 9/11 when she was 12 years old. She loves the movies "Deep Impact," "Twister," and "The Wizard of Oz" because of her fascination with weather phenomenon. In Mary's spare time she loves to sing and spend time with her two nephews, family and friends.
Mary is ready to track down those storms to keep you safe, and of course, bring a ton of sunshine!
