Well, to say “new station” is kind of misleading. If you’re an avid watcher of WQOW News 18, you may remember I was the weekend meteorologist from 2007 through most of 2009. After a short leave of two and a half years, working on the morning show at our sister station WXOW in La Crosse, I’m back in Eau Claire. It feels great to be part of the community again! I hope 2012 is starting well for you, and I wish you best of luck and a prosperous new year.
For me, a new year not only brings a new job, but also a new opportunity to connect with you, my friends and neighbors. In addition to my work on air and online, I’ll be keeping this neat blog called Beyond the Forecast. Please, feel free to bookmark this blog, because I will be sharing some cool things along the way that you won’t want to miss! If you’re an avid computer user like me, you sometimes need a go-to place online. That’s my goal with this blog. I’ll not only talk about the short and long range forecast, but we’ll get into some weird and cool science too. I promise I won’t make it difficult, just fun! I’m not limited to science either; discussions regarding the Chippewa Valley, news, and sports are not off the table!
Some things about me: I graduated from UW-Madison with my Meteorology degree in 2007 and I earned the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation from the American Meteorological Society in 2009. I love anything relating to the Wisconsin Badgers, the Packers, good food, great conversation, and fun. My wife Britny and I were married in Eau Claire in July 2010, and we both grew up in a rural community just northeast of Eau Claire. We are quite familiar with the area, but love meeting more people. If you see us out and about, never be afraid to say hi!
So, stay tuned for a look Beyond the Forecast….
