With over 25 years of experience in the television broadcast industry, Claire has recently joined Anaïd Productions, overseeing the day-to-day operations and communications in Edmonton and Vancouver. Prior to joining Anaïd, Claire was the senior meteorologist at CBC News Network working along side The National’s chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge and other newscasters, enlightening the country with her wealth of knowledge about the weather.
Claire helped build the CBC Weather Centre from the ground up – recruiting, leading and developing a team of on-air meteorologists from St. John’s, NL to Vancouver, BC.
Before this, she was with Global News Edmonton and Environment Canada.
Martin’s career includes a number of accolades including “Best Weather Presenter in the World” from the International Weather Festival in 2000, 2001 and 2003. She was also the first person in Canada to receive the “Certified Broadcast Meteorologist” designation by the American Meteorological Society in 2005, and was the first on-air meteorologist in Canada to earn the “Professional Meteorologist” or P.Met designation.
Originally from England, Martin moved to Canada in 1989 and has since travelled around the world with the UN’s World Meteorological Organization, meeting locals and teaching them the sciences of weather prediction and more importantly, the art of science communication. She was the lead author on guidelines published to help weather services deal with all issues of communication
One of Claire’s passions is her love of photography and she enjoys capturing the beauty of the skies in her work. Another fun fact: she experienced rock star status when as a child, she appeared in the video for Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.”
