Residence: Gold Coast
Having grown up in Lincoln Park and gone to school at the University of Michigan, Michael Weber wanted to get out of the Midwest. So after graduation she packed up, moved to Hawaii, and turned an internship at a local television station into a gig for Good Morning Hawaii. “I went to work at 2 a.m. and was on the beach surfing by noon,” she says.
Fast forward four years: Weber’s 27 and conversing with a warden about a prison inmate she needs to interview as part of her new position as a producer for American Justice on A&E. “Apparently he couldn’t socialize with other inmates, so I had to conduct my interview in a linen closet with him shackled to a chair.” Quite a change from her sunny days on the beach.
Despite having grown up in “a family of attorneys,” Weber was surprised to find out just how passionate she was about law. “I’d never be able to sit behind a desk and write legal briefs,” she says. “But I’m fascinated by the issues I cover.”
When it comes to men, Weber admits that she’s something of a serial dater. “My friends always joke that I go on one date and next thing they know I’m in a relationship,” she laughs. “I know almost immediately whether or not I want to see someone again, so if I go on a second date you know I’m interested.”
