Hollie Strano – Bio
The fine meteorologist was born as Hollie Strano on the 3rd day of December 1972, in Lyndhurst, the eastern suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. She was the first child out of three kids birthed by her parents. The names of her siblings are Mike and Stephanie. If the photos she has posted online are anything to go by, Strano seems to share a special bond with her brother Mike. Mike is a married man and a father of three children.
The young Hollie Strano had her basic and high education in private religious owned schools; Saint Clare Grade School, Lyndhurst, and Notre Dame Cathedral Latin and Walsh Jesuit school, Chardon, Ohio.
Strano later enrolled straight into a Catholic-owned university, known as John Carroll University in Ohio where she pursued a degree as a Meteorologist before moving to Mississippi State University where she bagged her National Weather Association Seal, a certificate that empowers her to forecast the weather conditions reports, live on air.
Hollie Strano soon landed herself a job with the WKYC television station located at Cleveland. Her style of reportage and presentation soon made her the toast of many both in the station and among the general public. With consistency, her bubbling and ever charming personality, laced with hard works, she grew through the office ranks. She is now hosting a 1-hour live program called the Live On Lakeside show, on Channel 3 News, along with Katherine Boyd. The show takes a peek into the lifestyle of Cleveland natives especially the celebrities with weather reports incorporated in the program. Apart from this, the show encourages sponsorships and gives their sponsors airtime to advertise their products and services to the teeming viewers.
The show has been a successful one, competing with other like-shows in renowned news outfits like the CBS’s The Price Is Right among others.
She has co-hosted the show with notable names like Alexa Lee, Maureen Kyle, Dave Chudoskwy, Michael Estime, Larry Macon and Joe Cronauer. Alexa Lee and Joe Cronauer are WKYC media personalities, Michael Estime is a fellow meteorologist at WKYC while Larry Macon is a Pastor in Mount Zion Church of Oakland.
Besides being a broadcaster and television show host, Hollie Strano also treats her fans to a cooking show, where she introduces her list of best recipes from pastries to everything munchable.
The hardworking mother of two has been dubbed as one of Cleveland’s Most Interesting People by Cleveland Magazine in 2005.
Her Salary and Net Worth
The Media personality and broadcaster has been very discreet with respect to her earnings, as such there is virtually little or no information to go by in that regard. However, one could only believe that she earns a tangible sum based on the fact she has been working for quite some years on the television as a weather forecaster. From her social media posts, it is clear to see that Strano is living well.
Is She Married or Divorced?
The 5 feet 3 inches tall broadcaster has had her feel of the marriage institution having been married a couple of times. Her first ever marriage was to a high school boyfriend who is known as Brian Toohig whom she met in Notre Dame Cathedral. After years of dating, they walked down the aisle together.
The couple welcomed their first child whom they named Jessica in 2005 and almost a year later their second child Grady was delivered in 2006. Sadly the couple split in 2011 but thankfully they were both involved in the upbringing of their two adorable children. Three years down the line Hollie Strano found love again in Alex Giangreco, a Florida born, with whom she exchanged marital vows with on the 15th day of June 2014 but again, three years after their marriage in 2017, the pair gave up on their love and went their separate ways.
Things have since been quiet in Hollie Strano’s love life. Perhaps she is taking time out to focus on her work or maybe she has decided to try the low key method of dating.
