Josh Eachus - 2une In, Noon Meteorologist
Josh Eachus is the 2une In and noon meteorologist for WBRZ. His forecasts can be seen from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. and noon to 1 p.m. weekdays. He joined the WBRZ team in September 2013.
Josh is originally from Media, Pennsylvania, just south of Philadelphia. He attended California University of Pennsylvania and graduated with a B.S. degree in Meteorology and an M.S. degree in Sports Management. In college, Josh was Vice-President of the SWPA Chapter of the AMS, and participated in a two-week long summer storm chase across the country for credited coursework. In 2007 and 2008, he presented his personal undergraduate research focused on climate trends and winter weather at National Weather Association Conferences.
In October 2013, Josh received the National Weather Association broadcast meteorologist seal of approval.
Before coming to work for WBRZ, he worked as a meteorologist and reporter at WTOV9 in Stubenville, Ohio/ Wheeling, West Virginia from June 2011 to August 2013. During his time at WTOV9, Josh was a member of the AP Award winning best "Team of Meteorologists". He also worked as an adjunct professor with the Bethany College Department of Communications teaching public speaking, sports broadcasting and broadcast news.
After a severe thunderstorm struck the electrical transformer at the end of his driveway during a summer storm in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Josh wanted to discover more about the science of meteorology. "To this day, it is the loudest noise I can recall hearing. From that point forward, fear of the power of nature grew into a respect for weather, and a drive to understand the science of meteorology. Now, I hope my studies have prepared me to alert viewers and protect them from destructive weather."
Josh currently resides in Baton Rouge with his girlfriend, Jaimee. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing- working on getting his average out of the middle 80s and into the 70s, and watching pro and college football. While it's not as popular here in Louisiana, Josh is a huge hockey fan and a die-hard Philadelphia Flyers fan.
Josh is active on social media and prides himself on bringing you the fastest and most accurate information possible on-air and online.
"I have a passion for weather and can't help but share my passion. The greatest compliment I receive from members of the community is not just that they enjoy my weather forecasts, but that they learned something about weather from watching me."
