Storm stayed in Houston for four years doing a variety of radio and television jobs, including hosting the Houston Rockets halftime and postgame shows and also hosted Houston Astros postgame shows on television. She worked as a weekend sports anchor on WCNC TV 36 (formerly WRET) in Charlotte, NC in 1988–89. She made the leap to CNN from there.
