Meteorologist Chris Gloninger joined NEWS10 in July 2007. The Long Island native began his career in Rochester, NY.
Chris became hooked on the weather when Hurricanes Gloria and Bob hit his hometown, Sag Harbor, New York. While growing up, he became a SkyWarn Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service. And in college, Chris was an active member of the American Meteorological Society, serving as its vice president during his junior year and as president in his senior year. At that time he organized a fundraiser to benefit the American Red Cross for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Chris completed two internships: one with the National Weather Service in Upton, New York and the other at WABC in New York City. Chris produced and broadcast the weather at PCC3-TV in Plymouth, New Hampshire. He earned his BS in Meteorology with a minor in Technical Math from Plymouth State University, and he has passed the written exam for the American Meteorological Society's Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) accreditation.
During his time at WHEC in Rochester, Chris enjoyed forecasting lake effect snow. While there, he taught a Meteorology/Climatology course at Monroe Community College. When Chris is not tracking storms, he enjoys playing tennis, sailing, kayaking, skiing and traveling!
Chris is happy to be living in the Capital Region and to be working with NEWS10's Weather Team! To contact Chris, you can email him at: Chris.Gloninger@wten.com.
