Josh Linker Career Career

Josh’s weather forecasting career began with a job at WNYT in Albany, New York, but his interest in the weather dates back to his childhood. Josh cites two hurricanes that hit his hometown on New York’s Long Island as influencing his future career. Hurricane Gloria hit the island directly in 1985, knocking out power for his family for ten days. In 1991, Hurricane Bob passed to the east of Long Island, bringing plenty of wind and rain on its way to landfall in New England.

Josh left WNYT in May 1998 to take on a new challenge forecasting weather in Tornado Alley at KGAN in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Josh’s time in eastern Iowa led him on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for anyone who is as fascinated with the weather as Josh is. He encountered 14 tornadoes while working on a story about storm chasers, two of which were rated F3 or higher. “There was one time when the tornado was actually chasing us,” Josh recalls. Josh moved to the Bay Area in March 2001 and began watching hurricanes again as a member of Bay News 9’s Weather on the Nines team.
