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! 


This virtual educational series is sponsored by the College's Graduate of Earth and Mineral Sciences (GEMS) Board of Directors (and not PSU NYC) and will spotlight the College's research in short interactive webinars to engage your curiosity and introduce you to our world-class faculty and alumni.  The event will be led by Weather World's Rob Lydick and moderated by PSU NYC's Erica Grow.
