Keynote Speaker Josh Judge

Josh Judge has been with WMUR for over 15 years, joining the Storm Watch 9 team in early 2001. Analyzing our challenging and ever-changing weather patterns is his passion. He loves telling viewers how the weather will affect their plans.

A lifelong New Englander, Josh grew up in the snowy hill towns of Western Massachusetts until leaving for Boston’s Emerson College in the mid 80s. He has lived in New Hampshire since 1990.

Broadcasting has been in Josh’s blood since he was 12 years old and had his own radio show by his senior year of high school. While in college, he worked as a Boston radio DJ, as well as a helicopter traffic reporter. He then spent eight years hosting a radio morning show in New Hampshire’s Seacoast region, first on Seacoast 102 WZEA (where he won the New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters’ “Air Personality of the Year” award in 1993) and later on ARROW 105.3 FM.

While returning to college to study atmospheric sciences, Josh worked for a weather company forecasting weather on radio stations up and down the East Coast, including in New York City and nationwide on AP Network News. He also spent several years doing weather on WHDH-TV in Boston and WGME-TV in Portland, Maine. He has also worked in helping develop the computer technology that TV stations use to broadcast the weather, by working as a consultant at WSI (The Weather Company), who produce TV station weather computers. He also designs many of the weather maps and graphics that you see on WMUR-TV.

In early 2006, Josh upgraded his credentials to the new the AMS “Certified Broadcast Meteorologist” seal, which replaced the previous AMS Seal of Approval. He was only the 3rd meteorologist in New England to do so, as it was a new and very rigorous type of credential from the American Meteorological Society.

He has written three weather books. “Extreme New England Weather” was released in late 2010 and featured contributions from over 15 New England television meteorologists. In 2009 he wrote a children’s book called, “Weather Facts and Fun,” written for children who love science and weather, which is now used in many NH elementary schools as a textbook. Josh recently released his newest children’s book “Be Nice to the Weather Guy.” He’s won several awards has been voted “Best TV Weathercaster” in the New Hampshire Magazine readers poll 6 times.

Josh lives in southern NH with his wife Diane, and their kids Ferguson, Adam, Zyna and Adelina. He enjoys spending time with his family, and his interests include playing tennis, skiing, boating, riding his motorcycle, aviation and New England sports (especially the Patriots and Red Sox).
