Nick Kosir is the Morning Meteorologist At Fox 46 and known worldwide as ‘The Rapping Weatherman.’ He graduated from The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Arts in Communicational Organization. His broadcasting career began there, where he first worked as an on-air DJ for WZIP-FM, the nation’s #1 rated college-run radio station.
He was awarded “DJ of the Year” at the age of 18. He also worked at the University’s television station where he co-hosted an entertainment news show, which won two national awards: “Best Low Budget Production” and “Best Entertainment Show.”
After an internship in New York City with MTV’s satellite radio station, he decided to pursue a career in television. He began my career at WMFD in Mansfield, Ohio, as a reporter and part-time weather forecaster, and was promoted to Weather Director within a year. Meteorology quickly became his passion. He decided to continue His education at Mississippi State University, and earned a certificate in Broadcast Meteorology.
In October of 2008, he made my way to Beaumont, Texas, as a morning meteorologist on KBTV ‘Good Day.’ It was there that his passion for entertaining and forecasting combined. He rapped his first forecast in July of 2009 in an effort to spice up a monotonous Southeast Texas weather pattern. His performance became an instant YouTube sensation and he has been rapping the weather ever since!
After a three year stint at KMVT in Twin Falls, Idaho he now resides in Charlotte with his wife and son. He is excited to live close to the mountains and the beach! When he has spare time Nick enjoys family time, including time with his dog Nika. He also enjoys working out, listening to music and watching my favorite movie; Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
