Michael Schlesinger


I knew at the age of four I had to work in weather. The tornado scene in "The Wizard of Oz" helped me decide to fulfill an on-camera dream, plus the fact I'm actually born on Groundhog Day, February 2.

I have spent most of my TV career in the Ohio Valley, including Toledo, Ohio, Evansville, Indiana, Parkersburg, West Virginia, and Cincinnati, Ohio. I also worked in Lansing, Michigan and Wichita, Kansas. I'm originally from Atlanta, Georgia, home of The Weather Channel. I even interned there for two years during college.

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Meteorology from Penn State University and have both the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association Seals of Approval.

In my free time, I like to hike, play tennis, work out, and swim. I also spend time volunteering for "Meals on Wheels" and working in various rescue missions.
