During the 2007 summer holidays I was on the weather desk for Seven News and when covering complicated weather systems, I would call the Bureau of Meteorology to talk about the details, I’d speak to Tony Auden. I discovered Tony was a fellow surfer, and we’d often talk about potential cyclone swells and the chance of perfect winds. 8 years later, fate would have it, that meteorologist Tony Auden would become the weekday weather presenter for Seven News. It was a move unprecedented for a Queensland network, where so often weather stories lead the news bulletins. When you think of drought in the outback, torrential summer downpours, cyclones, swells that destroy our beaches, bushfires and of course the Brisbane floods of 2011, it’s pretty evident that having the knowledge and forecast capabilities of a meteorologist in a news room is a huge asset to informing a network’s viewers. Lunch with Liz caught up with Tony, at Ole Fuego, at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.
