Justin Berk
Justin is obsessed with snow. He never hid his passion in nearly 20 years on TV, and doesn't today: "Faith-in-the-Flakes"
Justin got his degree in meteorology from Cornell University and worked his first two TV jobs in Syracuse and Binghamton NY. That's a lot of years in the snow-belt, but still not enough. In that time, he transitioned from skiing to snowboarding. The early years he spent as much time as possible between Greek Peak, Hunter, and Windham Mountains in NY. Stowe, Stratton, and Killington in VT.
In 1997, Justin moved to Maryland to work on TV in Baltimore. Over the next 14 years he became the first meteorologist in the region to achieve the CBM seal from the American Meteorological Society, was named Best in Baltimore by Baltimore Magazine 3 times, co-founded a radio show called Weather Talk, and taught weather classes at Stevenson University. He also has written for and grew his Facebook following to over 50,000. He won The Mobbies Award for best Facebook Page in Maryland for the past 2 years, including a Readers Choice Award in 2013.
Covering the Mid Atlantic Region includes his backyard in southern Pennsylvania. During the winter of 2013, Justin started a video series with Snowtime, Inc. filming weekly updates from Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail. His other favorite spots include Seven Springs, Wisp, and of course Snowshoe, WV.

Justin received his Meteorology degree from Cornell University, and was one of the youngest people to get the AMS seal a year later. His first jobs were in the 'snow belt' of Syracuse (WSTM) and Binghamton (WBNG) NY. He arrived in Baltimore in 1997 to work for WBAL. Five years later he joined the ABC-2 Storm-Team, and has been here since February, 2003. He has also worked free-lance for WPHL in Philadelphia. He was given the title 'Best in Baltimore 2000 and 2006 "by Baltimore Magazine.
Since 2000, Justin has taught at Villa Julie College. His classes include Introduction to Meteorology and Climate Change: Science and Society. Besides being "That guy in the snow" on WBAL, some more memorable experiences locally include: The first helicopter traffic reporter on WBAL, live coverage from Ocean City during Hurricane Isabel, and live broadcasts from schools on Good Morning Maryland.
He also serves on the panel of content development for Science on a Sphere with The Maryland Science Center on a few projects.
Justin also co hosts Weather Talk. The only radio show in the country dedicated all weather. More information can be found on his WEATHER TALK website
In his free time, Justin enjoys playing guitar, golf, and exercise including biking and running and weights (3rd place in NY State Bench Press 1995). Daily hikes are a must with his wife, son and dog.
In 2007, Justin became the only person in Baltimore with the CBM (Certified Broadcast Meteorologist), the highest level of credibility from the American Meteorological Society.

Justin Berk has gained a ..., 3 Jan 2013 [cached]
Justin Berk has gained a considerable following during his more than a decade as a meteorologist in the Baltimore region.
That following has grown in recent years, as Berk quickly learned how to reach out to an ever-expanding audience via social media. It was the desire to explore social- media opportunities more that eventually led Berk to walk away last January from WMAR-TV, where he had forecasted since 2003.
"The face of media is changing," Berk said. "Those in old media are now adjusting to how to best utilize new media at a time when people expect their news and weather instantaneously, many through their smartphones."
Berk said he spent the first part of last year working out a plan on how to move his career forward. This included working on the schematics for several smartphone apps.
However, the idea he eventually moved forward with didn't come from him; it came from his 6-year-old son, Brendan, who suggested a weather app designed specifically for kids. This led to the recent release of the Kid Weather App.
"I had some idea of what I wanted to do with an app, but I realized that Brendan [was] onto something special," Berk said. "I come from a family of educators, and it was important to me that I develop something that people could learn from. A weather app for kids, designed by kids - I think accomplished just that."
Berk said the app has something to offer children from toddlers to preteens. Along with weather for local communities, the app also features trivia, safety tips, temperature graphing and a Fahrenheit-to-Celsius calculator. There are also several avatars people can choose, and users can "dress" them based on the weather.
"Weather is something that interests people of all ages," Berk said.
Berk said he already has had several thousands of people pay $1.99 to download it.
Berk said Miller and Sibel Thomas learned of the app, like most who have purchased it, via social media.
Most of Berk's marketing is done on Facebook, where he has more than 23,000 followers. More than half of those started to follow Berk after he left WMAR.
"This huge following really opened my eyes to the impact of social media," Berk said. "I get instant feedback on everything from the weather forecast to what people do and don't like about the app. The key moving forward is learning how to best leverage that audience."
Berk said developing the app has been an amazing learning experience. It is the centerpiece of his company, Just In Weather LLC, which also has Berk offering metrological consulting work for several businesses. Berk, a 1995 Cornell graduate, also continues to teach meteorology classes at Stevenson University.
"The response has been tremendous," Berk said. "What has made this even more special is that I got to go on this journey with my son."
Berk added that the lesson he taught Brendan through this process went far beyond the weather.
"Getting this app off the ground was not an easy process," Berk said.
