After joining Fox in January 2004, she covered the busiest hurricane season on record in 2005—which included Hurricanes Rita, Wilma, and Katrina—and led the coverage of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Janice also reported on one of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history when an EF-5 tornado struck Joplin, Missouri, on May 22, 2011. The storm packed winds in excess of 200 mph and was on the ground for more than 22 miles. Janice is a member of the American Meteorological Society and was awarded the AMS seal of Approval in 2009.
    Many Fox viewers know Janice as "Janice Dean the Weather Machine," a nickname that was given to her by chief news anchor and managing editor Shepard Smith.
    Janice resides in New York with her husband and their two sons.

Reviews-
  • Kirkus

    Freddy the Frogcaster learns about tornadoes.Aspiring meteorologist Freddy has been practicing his weather forecasting. Every weekend he visits Frog News Network to rehearse in front of the cameras. When his weather models predict strong storms, he lets Sally Croaker and Polly Woggins, frogcasters who work for FNN, know what is coming. With the possibility of tornadoes in the near future for the town of Lilypad, Tad Polar, famous storm chaser, comes to town--and he takes Freddy with him in his specially equipped storm-chasing van. They see a tornado and let the local news teams know. The storm is scary, and it does some damage, but everyone survives thanks to Freddy and Tad. Dean's fourth Freddy the Frogcaster title packs a lot of information on tornado formation and tornado safety into a thin story. The clear, simple language of the story and the seven pages of illustrated aftermatter make this a worthy addition to larger library collections. With Cox's bright, expressive illustrations of bug-eyed, gape-mouthed frogs, it may even allay some storm fears.Best read for its informational content.

  • Dr. Marshall Shepherd, former President of AMS, Host of Wx Geeks, and Professor at the University of Georgia
    "A MUST READ for any child that has expressed interest in weather or science. Period."
  • Dana Perino, Co-Host of Fox News Channel's The Five and former White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush "I wish Janice Dean had written this book when my sister and I worried every summer afternoon about tornadoes on the eastern plains of Colorado. Janice has a way of informing without scaring, and the illustrations are fun for kids and adults alike."
  • Bob Van Dillen, Meteorologist for HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade "Freddy the Frogcaster does it again! My kids and I love how Janice Dean paints the atmospheric adventure while teaching us how to be weather prepared."
  • Neil Cavuto, Senior Vice President, Managing Editor, and Anchor for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network; Anchor of FNC's Your World and Cavuto on Business and FBN's Cavuto "Freddy's a treat and a warm, well-weathered soul! Thank you Janice, for keeping the forecast real AND really fun to learn about!"
  • James Spann, Chief Meteorologist for ABC 33/40, AMS CBM Recipient, past NWA Broadcaster of the Year, and Host of the podcast WeatherBrains "Children interested in weather will love reading about Freddy and the Terrible Tornado. Janice has done a superb job; it is a fun read, teaches science, and gives comfort knowing you will be safe during a tornado if you understand severe weather safety."
  • Dr. Reed Timmer, Storm Chaser and Meteorologist "In a lighthearted yet informative way, Freddy the Frogcaster shows us what the moments before severe weather strikes are like for meteorologists and emergency personnel. I'd like to take a ride in the Tadmobile!"
