Workshop on Weathercasting Techniques

Professional Interests and Activities
Since 2004, Jim has returned to his alma matter (Lyndon Class of 1986) to teach an intensive class on television weathercasting. During this special class, current broadcasting-concentration seniors get a unique perspective on the business, and intensive one-on-one work with Jim.

Perhaps no one person is more suited to instruct such a class. After graduating from Lyndon in 1986, The Weather Channel gave him his first job out of college in July of that year. He has worked at The Weather Channel ever since, where his uniquely passionate style have helped him become one of the most recognized national weather personalities. Jim is passionate about education, whether he’s explaining the significance of a dry slot on water vapor imagery, or describing the real-time impacts of severe tropical weather.

Jim enjoys a fine powder ski day in the Western United States. He may be seen tending his fine collection of Japanese Maple trees.
