Michael Rieger has loved weather since he was 8 years old. He always checked the weather online and on T.V. everyday wondering what the forecast would be. By 8th grade, he decided to pursue becoming a broadcast meteorologist. He is determined to become a meteorologist at a local news station, hopefully in the northeast. He interned at two news stations, twice at NBC Connecticut in West Hartford, CT, and once at WFSB in Rocky Hill, CT. These internships strengthened his passion for meteorology.
