|Hazel Murray is one of the best known of Sky's acclaimed team of Weather Forecasters.|
Hazel made her name as the voice of the Flying Eye, reporting on traffic for Capital Radio through the evening rush hour, between 1987 and 1993. During that time she published a book of her aerial photographs of London, 'Capital London - Focus from the Flying Eye', with anecdotes from Tony Blackburn, David Jensen, Neil Fox, Chris Tarrant and others.
She then moved to Sky News, where she presents the weather with Francis Wilson and the Sky News weather team. Hazel has attended courses at the Meteorological College at Bracknell, and also has a first class degree in Mathematics. Although most of the weather broadcasts are done in the studio, there are also many outside broadcasts, especially in the summer
Hazel is passionate about flowers and gardens and, sponsored by Sky, she designed and built a small garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2003, where she and her amateur team were awarded 'Best Courtyard Garden in Show' for their 'View To A Future' Tuscan garden, which highlighted possible results of global warming. A year later she and her team won Silver Gilt at Hampton Court Flower Show for 'Vineyard Vision' based on her plot of a hundred vines, again focussing on climate change and sponsored by Sky.
