During her tenure with the weather service, she provided forecasts on TV and radio for numerous AccuWeather clients including FOX News, CNBC, ABC News Now and many local stations. She had also been the main morning weather anchor for the Bloomberg Television Network.

A versatile broadcaster, in addition to her weather duties, Bilo has twice guest hosted CBS’s Daytime Emmy Award-nominated talk show THE TALK.
A certified bookworm, Bilo sets a goal to read 100 books each year. In her effort to help children develop a love of reading, she serves as Champion of Reading for the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Summer Reading program, visiting libraries to read to them. Bilo also enjoys traveling, bike riding and taking long walks. A thunderstorm junkie, her dream is to one day go on a tornado chase in the Plains.
Bilo is married and the mother of two young sons.
