Tim Drawbridge joined NEWS10 in July 2013. He along with Cap, Andy, and Steve Teeling love the weather and strive to deliver accurate forecasts that allow you to plan your day and keep your family safe.
Tim actually wandered the hallways of NEWS10 during his first internship with Cap while also filling in for Andy at WNCE-TV (Channel 8) in Glens Falls in 1991. He grew up on the East End of Long Island and is a graduate of Lyndon State College which is located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
Tim is a member of the American Meteorological Society holding their TV Seal of Approval since August 1998. He also has been recognized by Metroland Newsweekly as "Best TV Weather Anchor" in their yearly, staff-compiled "Best of the Capital Region in 2004, 2007, and again in 2011.
His career began at WVNY in Burlington, Vermont late in 1993. A year later, Tim was off to Central Kentucky and WLEX. He spent three years forecasting the weather and dealing with the severe weather challenges of the Bluegrass State. He received accolades for his severe weather coverage having been nominated and commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel by a member of the former Lexington office of the National Weather Service. As well, he had the opportunity to co-host the Miss Kentucky Gala while also becoming familiar with the fun of Kentucky basketball, the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, and The Derby.
In 1997 Tim took on the challenge of building a weather department from scratch. He was off to WSYM in Lansing, Michigan where he ran into Coach Tom Izzo at first base during his first PR appearance at a charity softball game. Tim participated in the Snowflake Chili Cook-off four times with his team winning 4th place one year. He learned some of the ins and outs of Hot Air Ballooning and loved experiencing the MSU football & basketball seasons. Early in 2002, Tim headed for WZVN in Fort Myers, Florida to bask in the sunshine and deal with the intricate challenges of sea breeze fronts and tropical meteorology.
Tim returned to the Capital Region in September 2003 having worked Capital News 9 – now YNN – and, more recently, was known as the "weekend warrior" at WNYT.
You can also hear his forecasts on the radio daily on FROGGY 107.1, Classic Hits "Q" 101.7, 100.3 The Point, 1230 FOX Sports Radio WMML, and 1410 CBS Sports Radio WENU.
When Tim isn't doing the weather, he's hitting the gym, landscaping and gardening - obviously, when it's warm. He's also no stranger to the kitchen - yes, the dude can cook, bake, and grill. And yes, he's been a Mets and Jets fan since the days of Craig Swan pitching to John Stearns and Richard Todd throwing deep fly patterns to Wesley Walker and Kurt Sohn.
