NEW YORK -- A new face is coming to FOX Weather to bring you the latest weather news and forecasts.
Meteorologist Michael Estime will join America's Weather Team as the newest on-air host.
Estime comes to FOX Weather from WJBK-TV, the FOX owned station in Detroit, where he spent two years as the weekend meteorologist covering flooding, snowstorms, and various weather patterns.
From 2016 to 2020, he served as the weekend meteorologist and weekday co-host of "Live on the Lakeside" at NBC affiliate WKYC-TV in Cleveland, Ohio, where he covered several lake-effect snowstorms.
Prior to that, he was a meteorologist at ABC affiliate WTVQ-TV in Lexington, Kentucky. During his time there, his coverage of snowstorms, flooding and violent tornados helped the station earn the title of "Most Accurate Forecast in Central Kentucky" by WeatheRate.
