The Weather Channel’s very own Jim Cantore was among the first three honorees inducted into the 2018 Weather Hall of Fame at the National Weather Museum and Science Center in Norman, Oklahoma on Saturday, October 20th.
As one of the most recognized faces in weather, Cantore embodies the passion and knowledge of The Weather Channel. If you’ve ever seen him in thundersnow, you know this to be true! Not only is he the weather authority viewers turn to when their forecast turns dire, but he has been a guiding voice during every major weather event of the past 30 years. Tornado? Been there. Blizzards? Done that. Hurricanes? That’s his bread and butter. From Superstorm Sandy to Hurricanes Katrina, Irene, Harvey, and most recently Florence and Michael, Jim has always brought tremendous and trustworthy storm coverage to millions of homes across America. Before, during and after weather events, his live reports and insights keep the public safe. When not in the field, he covers the latest forecast and weather news on AMHQ weekday mornings, where he lights up the screen with his zest for life and weather.
“I am incredibly honored to be a part of the Weather Hall of Fame and can’t thank the National Weather Museum and Science Center enough,” said Jim Cantore. “It’s rewarding to be recognized and play a part in the immense impact The Weather Channel television network has on the country, particularly in times of severe weather.”
If you’re a fan of The Weather Channel or weather in general, there’s a good chance you’re a fan of Jim Cantore too. Nobody can cover the weather quite like Jim, so to us, we are not surprised in the slightest he was inducted into the Weather Hall of Fame.
Cantore was honored alongside Dr. Elbert W. (Joe) Friday, Jr., retired director of the NOAA National Weather Service and Thomas J McNellis Jr., senior manager with Lockheed Martin.
