Jeff Baskin Career

Baskin works with FOX16 News where he serves the station as a Chief Meteorologist. He joined the station in January 2009 with more than 12 years worth of experience forecasting all types of severe weather which include tornadoes, snow and ice storms, and hurricanes.

Prior to FOX16 News, he was working as an on-air meteorologist at WFOR in Miami where he helped Floridians weather a very active 2008 Hurricane Season. Prior to that, he was working as a Chief Meteorologist at KOIN in rainy Portland, Oregon. This is in addition to having worked as a weekend meteorologist for WVUE located in New Orleans.

It was while in New Orleans that he gained much of his experience with severe weather, forecasting for at least 6 years along the Gulf Coast. This includes the devastating 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons. Previously, he was working in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast. The Hurricane destroyed the station where he worked and inundated the neighborhood where he lived with flood water.

In his time in New Orleans, he was awarded “Best Weathercast in New Orleans” twice by the New Orleans Press Club. He is originally from Upstate New York and is a proud graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York where he obtained a Degree in Meteorology.

He kick-started his career working in Utica, New York. There, he was serving the station as a meteorologist and general assignment reporter. Living in a place that averaged 90 inches of snow per year, he forecasted more than his fair share of major snow and ice storms.
