Math teacher, Nathan Maus’s wife, April Maus is a part of the weather and traffic team for CBS 62 First Forecast.

  She is a Maryland native, but she graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. She also worked for News Central 34 in Mt. Pleasant.

  April has to change her last name to “Moss” so that people know how to pronounce it, and for privacy purposes.

  She joined CBS 62 back in 2012. She first realized she loved broadcasting when she was in middle school. She loved to write and was not shy in front of a camera.  

  Moss stated, “My dad suggested that I concentrate on public speaking and reporting because of my strong writing skills, so he brought me to the local TV station for their morning news cast when I was 12 years old.”

  From that moment, she loved the excitement of the newsroom and the set. She decided decided that becoming a TV reported was her goal.

  In high school, she took a speech class to help her improve on speaking in front of people. By her senior year, she helped launch her school’s first newscast. She was a producer and anchor. She even had the privilege of giving the Commencement address at her High School graduation which was held at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

  She stated, “That was quite a challenge, but it helped prepare me for my current job.”

  In addition to her position as a Weather Forecaster, she also hosts a community affairs show on the CW50. She loves hosting the Street Beat because it gives her the opportunity to meet amazing people across Metro Detroit. Moss has met and interviewed many people such as the Superintendent of Detroit Public Schools, the CEO of Belfor, Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller, as well as many other from charities such as The Humane Society, The Salvation Army, Recovery Park Farms, and Vehicles For Change.

  Moss does not really consider herself a celebrity. When people recognize her in public, she often smiles, but doesn’t tell them she’s on TV.

  She stated, “I try not to let any of that get to my head…I like to think that I’m just a mom who happens to have a really fun part time job.”

  Maus really enjoys seeing his wife on television.

  Maus stated, “It’s pretty cool to see someone you know on TV and even better when they are on all the time. She loves her job and really enjoys the work.”

 Moss loves her job and she has always wanted to help people. She feels that giving accurate weather is helpful to everyone- to school districts on snow updates, pilots on flying conditions, and construction workers. She is grateful that her job is part time because she can spend time time with her four sons, “which happens to be the greatest honor of all.”

  You can check out April Moss on CBS62 every Saturday and Sunday at 11 p.m., and 10:58 p.m. on the CW50.
