Brandon Michaels was born and raised in Green Bay Wisconsin. He attended Green Bay East High School before graduating from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. There he was a member of the University chapter on the American Meteorological society. At University of Wisconsin-Madison, Brandon was able to enjoy many wonderful meteorological opportunities, from chasing tornadoes with classmates to creating his own supercell index.
This is Brandon's first job in broadcasting, but he spent over a year preparing mobile app forecasts for his native Green Bay, and is very familiar with the weather in the Great Lakes region. He's looking forward to his time in the Northland, although he admits he's a little nervous for his first Duluth winter. Outside of work Brandon enjoys the outdoors and sports, including biking. He also enjoys photography and trying new foods.
