(WWLP) – Meteorologist Nick Bannin can be seen bringing you the forecast each weekday morning on 22News starting at 4:30AM and on 22News at Noon.
Nick was born in Bristol, England. He then moved to Manchester, England and became a diehard Manchester United supporter. At age 4, Nick relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio. It was there that he first developed his passion for weather, winter snow storms, and spring severe weather. Nick then moved back to England, just outside of London this time, at age 7, for one final stint as a Brit. At age 9, Nick returned to the USA for good. He set down roots first in San Jose, California, and then in San Diego. Nick enjoys heading out west to see his family because it doubles quite easily as “vacation” at any time of year.
Higher education brought Nick to the Northeast where he attended Cornell University achieving a Bachelor’s Degree in Atmospheric Science, as well as a Minor in Applied Economics and Management. After graduation, he began his on-air career as a meteorologist for WETM-TV in Elmira, N.Y. serving the Twin Tiers and Binghamton area.
In October 2010, Nick Bannin joined the 22News Storm Team as the weekend meteorologist. It was a busy start for Nick at 22News with major weather events such as the June 1st tornado, Tropical Storm Irene and the October Snow Storm happening all within his first year!
Nick met his now wife while interviewing her for a story about the weather. He is very happy to call western Massachusetts home.
If you see Nick out and about, make sure you say, “Hi.” Just remember… he goes to bed early so he can wake up for his 1:55 a.m. alarm Monday through Friday!
