He continued his education from 1992 to 1997 by doing postgraduate work in Atmospheric Science at the University of South Carolina. His first job was with the Center for Storm Research in Houston, TX. In 1975, he went to work at WREG-TV in Memphis, TN, as the first meteorologist ever to appear regularly on television in that city. Jim moved to Oklahoma City in 1977 to join the meteorology staff of KTVY-TV (now KFOR-TV). Five years later, he joined the consulting firm WeatherData, Inc. in Wichita, KS, where he served as Director of Technical Operations, providing weather forecasts for the Kansas State Network.
In June, 1984, Jim joined WIS-TV in Columbia as Chief Meteorologist. During his 14-year tenure, he became well known for his forecast of Hurricane Hugo, his coverage of the 1993 superstorm, and the Lexington County tornado outbreak in 1994. Jim was awarded the American Meteorologist Society's Seal of Approval for weathercasting in 1985 and in 2009 became a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) becoming the first CBM in the Columbia area. The State newspaper named Gandy Best TV Weather Forecaster in 1993, and "Columbia Metropolitan Magazine" named him Best TV Weather Personality for five consecutive years. The South Carolina Broadcasters Association presented the Masters Award to Jim in 2004. The award has only been given to 12 South Carolina broadcasters and he was the first meteorologist to receive the award.
In 1998, Jim joined Gannett Television, where he worked as a meteorological consultant with the weather staffs of the company's 22-station broadcast group.
Gandy is a member of the American Meteorological Society, the National Weather Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union and the Planetary Society. In an effort to bring the science of meteorology to schools, Jim has taught a course called Weather Science for Teachers through the Center for Science Education at the University of South Carolina.
Recently Jim partnered with the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University and Climate Central to develop a program called Climate Matters. The program is presented during the weathercasts to explain how and why our climate is changing. Jim received the 2013 Award for Excellence in Science Reporting by a Broadcast Meteorologist for Climate Matters. In addition, Climate Matters has its own webpage on the WLTX website. Jim started a blog to write about weather and climate which has the original title of Weather and Climate Matter.
