A 2017 national survey of broadcast meteorologists

Mar 1, 2017 | All Categories, Climate Matters, Reports

Broadcast meteorologists are increasingly playing an important role across America as trusted, local climate change educators. Through our Climate Matters partnership—with Climate Central, the American Meteorological Society, NASA, NOAA and Yale—we provide broadcast meteorologists with materials and training to play this new role of climate educators well.  To that end, we intermittently survey weathercasters to learn more about how best to support their efforts. In January, we surveyed all TV weathercasters nationwide to learn more about their evolving views on climate change and their activities as climate educators, and to explore other factors that are influencing their work in broadcast meteorology.

The results of that survey can be downloaded here.
