Michael Estime’s Professional Life
Prior to joining the WJBK Fox 2 News team, he worked for WKYC in Cleveland for four years as the Weekend Meteorologist and weekday co-host of “Live on Lakeside.” Because of its proximity to Lake Erie, Northeast Ohio is a great place to reside.
Every fall, winter, and spring, Lake Erie wreaked havoc on daily life with masses of lake effect snow! It was a new task for him, but one he eagerly accepted with open arms and a shovel in hand.
Prior to moving to Cleveland, he served as the Morning, Midday, and Noon Meteorologist at WTVQ in Lexington, Kentucky, the “Horse Capital of the World.” His forecasts of debilitating snowstorms, record-breaking cold, deadly flooding, and violent tornadoes earned our weather team the distinction of “Most Accurate Forecast in Central Kentucky” by WeatheRate while he was in Kentucky.
He began his professional broadcasting career in Macon, Georgia, the “Song & Soul Capital of the South.” He worked at WMGT for numerous years as the Morning Meteorologist before being appointed to Chief Meteorologist, a post he held for several years.
In Georgia, he experienced it all, from scorching hot summers and hurricanes to snow and ice storms. The record tornado outbreak in the southeast on April 27-28, 2011, which ravaged sections of Central Georgia, serves as my humble pie as to Mother Nature’s enormous might.
Through the Emma L. Bowen Foundation (EBF), Estime began his career working behind the scenes at WWJ-TV CBS Detroit and was awarded a 5-year work/study scholarship with CBS News. He was able to work/shadow with meteorologists from all over the country, including New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Detroit, thanks to the EBF.
