Where are they now?

Today, we feature former WBRE weather forecaster Dr. Jon Nese.

A Penn State graduate (with a Ph.D., no less), Nese split his time between teaching and television. He spent two years in small markets in Ohio, before coming to WBRE in 1995 as a fill-in forecaster. After three years, Nese left television for academia, moving to Philadelphia to head up the weather center at the Franklin Institute Science Museum.

Where is he now? Nese is now a "storm analyst" for The Weather Channel.

Sorry, Howard, but I do believe you are one step behind Jon's career track; last I knew he'd left TWC and was back at PSU in State College.

Jon is a very nice man. I worked with him at two of his stops, and he is a quality guy with high standards. He is a real pro who knows his stuff.

Yes, Jon is teaching again at Penn State - and is probably the best out there. His family didn't really like Atlanta (and he wasn't the biggest fan of those early mornings either) and moved back north in the spring of '05 to be closer to the rest of the family. Jon loves teaching so it wasn't a hard decision. He's also was one of those true nice and genuine guys. I wish he'd fill in again sometimes!

During Jon's time at WBRE he was a full time tenured professor at Penn State Hazleton before he was recruited by the Franklin Insitute.

If anyone's interested, he'll be back at PSU Hazleton 3/27/07 to give a talk about "Mediarology." All are welcome to attend.
