Welcome to The Broadcast Meteorologist. It is a blog I’ve created to help college and entry-level broadcast meteorologists get started in the field. I know what its like to be in front of the chroma-key wall for the first time, and it can be a frustrating and stressful experience. I’m hoping to contribute helpful ideas on improving your weathercasts, and helping you land that first, entry-level weather gig.
I’ve been a broadcast meteorologist at WCAX-TV in Burlington, Vermont since 1999. I’m also an adjunct professor at Lyndon State College teaching broadcast performance to meteorology majors. I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not the best broadcast meteorologist out there, but I do have an interest in helping new mets get better.
More content is coming. Please feel free to send me your own thoughts, suggestions, and ideas. Broadcast meteorology is a great career, but it can be a challenge to get started. My hope is to help get you there.
