“Yes, WETHERBEE is my real last name,” says “Big” John Wetherbee. “And I have always been a ‘weather geek’, chasing storms while trying to serve others with life-saving information on TV and the radio.”
Sealed and certified as a broadcast meteorologist, John also happens to be a 37-year radio veteran as programmer, performer, seller and manager. “They never let me into the shop, which was probably a good thing when you start so young.”
He is a four-time forecaster-of-the-year, serving on the National Weather Association’s certification board for the last four years, Emmy-award winning and former AMS local chapter president.
John and his wife are proud parents of three daughters and one son-in-law, all working toward college degrees. There’s a dog, two cats and three fish.
