COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WUSA9) -- OK, I admit it, I'm a University of Maryland Alumnus and I currently work at the Journalism School there. So, who better to write about this year's Maryland Day, right?
I'm a little biased (I'm really a LOT biased), but I must say, this year was bigger and better than ever!
If you stopped by Knight Hall at the University and recorded your own weather forecast with an on-air personality from the station, you're probably watching your forecast and saying: "Wow, they make it look so easy on the air!"
Last year, WUSA9's on-air team recorded about 200 DVDs with visitors to our attraction. This year, we broke that record. We gave away thumb drives with weather forecasts, and we took hundreds of pictures from the massive event. Click on the photo gallery above to see all the fun.
