Another Loukoumi Dream Day comes true! What do you want to be? Panagioti Pasaportis turns 8 years old next month, but he already knows what he wants to be when he grows up - a storm chaser and a meteorologist... And so, the latest winner of our Growing Up With Loukoumi Dream Day Contest got to spend the day with FOX-5 meteorologist Nick Gregory! During his Dream Day experience this adorable young boy from Whitestone, NY explored the weather center with Nick, learned about the polar vortex, tracked storms, toured the set and appeared before the green screen. He watched two newscasts live and also got to meet Ernie Anastos, who gave Panagioti some make-up for his close-up and invited him to sit in his news chair.  Special thanks to Nick Gregory, Ernie Anastos and everyone at FOX-5 for making this child's dream come true!
