WGEM-TV, a 2016 National Edward R. Murrow winner and dominant #1 NBC affiliate in Quincy, Illinois, has an opportunity for a weekend meteorologist.
The WGEM StormTrak Weather team is a dominant local weather brand. Our weather system is state of the art--The Weather Company’s MAX, MAX Storm, MAX Studio and MagicTrak. During severe weather coverage, our meteorologists are supported by a team of award-winning journalists who report live from the field.
