Michael Estime Biography

Michael Estime Education

Estime graduated from Central Michigan University (CMU) and earned a degree in Meteorology with a minor in Mathematics. During his time at CMU, he worked for MHTV News Central 34 and was awarded “Best Weathercaster” in 2006, 2007 & 2008.

Michael Estime Career

Estime is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist at Fox Weather. Prior to joining the WJBK Fox 2 News family, he served for 4 years as the Weekend Meteorologist and weekday co-host of “Live on Lakeside” in Cleveland at WKYC. Northeast Ohio is an incredible part of the country to live in given its proximity to Lake Erie. Lake Erie impacted day-to-day life every fall, winter, and spring with tons of lake-effect snow! It was a forecasting challenge, but one that he welcomed with open arms and a shovel in hand.

Before heading to Cleveland, he worked as the Morning, Midday & Noon Meteorologist at WTVQ in the “Horse Capital of the World” – Lexington, Kentucky. As he was in Kentucky, his forecasts of crippling snowstorms, record-shattering cold, devastating flooding, and violent tornadoes helped earn our weather team the title of “Most Accurate Forecast in Central Kentucky” by WeatheRate.

He began his professional broadcast career in the “Song & Soul of the South,” – Macon, Georgia. Estime served as the Morning Meteorologist at WMGT for several years before being promoted to Chief Meteorologist – a position he held for several years. He experienced just about everything in Georgia, from blistering hot summers and hurricanes to snow and ice storms. The historic April 27-28, 2011 tornado outbreak in the southeast, which decimated parts of Central Georgia, serves as my piece of humble pie as to the extreme power of Mother Nature.

Estime began his career working behind the scenes at WWJ-TV CBS Detroit through the Emma L. Bowen Foundation (EBF) and was awarded a 5-year work/study scholarship with CBS News. The EBF allowed him the opportunity to work/job shadow meteorologists all over the country from New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Detroit.
