GEMS 125th Anniversary Virtual Educational Series

Rob Lydick (BS in Meteorology, 2011) 

Weather World: The Meteorological Merger of Science and Communications at Penn State

More than six decades of television weather history at Penn State have shaped a world-renowned Weather Communications program that teaches and develops student excellence in effective communication. The capstone experience is Weather World, a weather and climate magazine show that airs on public television and the statewide Pennsylvania cable network. Students are given a wide range of on-air experience with anchoring, forecasting, and reporting assignments, as well as behind-the-scenes opportunities for directing, producing, and creating graphics. These experiences with Weather World and the Weather Communications program empower and equip students for careers in broadcasting and beyond, even in the midst of a global pandemic.
