Mike Stone has over 20 years of experience as a broadcast meteorologist. He can be seen on our weekend morning newscasts, and the noon & 7 p.m. newscasts on Wednesday through Friday.
He originally worked at WTVR in the late 1990s. Since then, he has worked in Toledo, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. His first job was in Oklahoma, where he gained a lot of experience covering tornadoes and severe weather.
Mike graduated in 1993 from Penn State University. He has been certified by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) as a broadcast meteorologist, and also holds the National Weather Association (NWA) seal of approval. He was part of two team efforts that won Emmys — one for best weather special, and one for best weekend newscast.
Mike attends local, national and international weather conferences, where the latest technology and forecast techniques are presented. In 2009, he was one of only twenty broadcast meteorologists chosen to participate in a climate change conference in Chicago.
Mike served as a weather consultant for the 2013 movie “Available”, which was shot in Richmond. The shooting schedule was during a rainy week, and he had to pinpoint the isolated dry hours for filming. More about the movie can be found at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2734498/?ref_=nm_flmg_msc_1
Mike is married and has a golden retriever named Selena. You might be able to find one or two (thousand) pictures of Selena on his Facebook & Twitter pages:
