Chris Gloninger joined NBC 10 Boston and the New England Cable News [NECN] in June 2016, where our own Kenny K2KRP was at the time the Vice President & News Director.
As most of those who regularly check in to the daily ‘8:35 on the 805’ Net know, Kenny is the OMARC Weather Net Coordinator and also serves as our OMARC Treasurer.
When Kenny told Chris about OMARC, Chris generously began donating his time and sharing his expertise with a group of OMARC members who have volunteered to serve as Weather Net Controllers.
Chris received his Certified Broadcast Meteorologist accreditation from the American Meteorological Society. Recently Chris presented a paper, “How to Improve Communication During Times of Severe Weather,” at the AMS annual meeting in New Orleans.
In addition to working with Kenny to train the Weather Net Controllers in the basics of weather spotting and meteorological science, Chris is ‘on call’ should we have any questions in our role of gathering data and disseminating it to the National Weather Service and broadcast news outlets in New York City and Albany.
We are most fortunate to have Chris as our ‘coach’ and Kenny as our leader and coordinator of the OMARC Weather Net team.
If you are interested in volunteering to serve as a Net Control or in other Weather Net support roles you can contact Kenny K2KRP at email@example.com.
