Mike Bennett joined the FOX 13 staff as a meteorologist in August 2013. He can be seen on the weekend evening newscasts and filling in during the week.
Mike is originally from South Jersey, but went to school at Cornell University where he received a B.A. in atmospheric science. While at school, Mike began his broadcasting career working for the local college station, Ithaca College TV (ICTV), as well as interning at WCBS in New York City.
After school, Mike began working for WSYR in Syracuse and eventually moved down the thruway to work for WTEN in Albany, both as a broadcast meteorologist as well as a multi-media journalist for science and weather-related stories.
Mike has traded in the long Northeast winter seasons for the sunshine and heat in Florida, and looks forward to the forecasting challenges of tropical meteorology.
In his free time, Mike can be seen on the golf course (though mostly in the bunkers), on the beach, and grilling with friends.
