Michael Fish joined NBC26 in May 2017 as the meteorologist for NBC26 Today.
Michael is a Wisconsin native, born and raised in Fond du Lac.
While storm spotting in 1996 and experiencing the massive Oakfield, F5 tornado he knew he wanted to obtain a better understanding of Meteorology.
After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, "Fish" as most people call him, came back to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to work on his Master's Degree in Atmospheric Science.
This Wisconsin education led to an internship opportunity with 36-year veteran John Malan at Today's TMJ4 in Milwaukee. Michael was lucky enough to be offered a position with TMJ4, while he was still going to school, as well as teaching Meteorology lab classes at UWM.
Fish had an almost 10-year career forecasting the weather at TMJ4 for the Milwaukee area and a nearly 5-year stint forecasting for our very own NBC26 in Green Bay.
