Meteorologist Eric Snitil is trading his heavy coat and snow shoes for shorts and sandals, and couldn't be more thrilled. Eric comes to us from KTVA, the CBS affiliate in Anchorage, Alaska where he served as the station's morning meteorologist. Covering everything from blizzards and ice storms to earthquakes and tsunamis, Eric polished his forecasting skills in one of the most extreme places on earth.
As exciting as Alaska was, Eric's passion is severe weather. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, he couldn't stay away from thunderstorms for long. As an avid storm chaser, the Alabama region offers an exciting backdrop for any weather enthusiast…especially those crazy enough to dare to chase some of Mother Nature's worst.
Eric has earned his Certification with Advanced Standing in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University and has completed coursework for a Bachelor's in Broadcast News from Kent State University. While at Kent, Eric served as Weather Director for TV2, the local station.
You can watch Eric on WSFA Friday's at 9:00pm, all day Saturday and during the evening shows on Sunday. You can also catch him reporting during the week.
As it has for as long as he can remember, Eric's life revolves around weather. When he's not staring at weather maps, Eric can usually be found on the baseball diamond or soccer field. If you see him out and about around Montgomery, be sure to stop and say hello!
You can also get in touch with Eric by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook and Twitter.
