From Higher Ed to the Weather Channel

A few podcast episodes earlier, we interviewd Lyndon State College President, Joe Bertolino for a second time.  Dr. Bertolino mentioned the Lyndon State meteorology program and how Joe D'Aleo was a member of the faculty of Lyndon State and became involved in the beginning stages of the Weather Channel.  So we reached out to Mr. D'Aleo and he was kind enough to chat with us about his time at Lyndon State and at the Weather Channel.  Mr. D'Aleo has an extensive professional background in meteorology, including serving as the first director of meteorology at The Weather Channel in 1981.  Just prior to joining The Weather Channel, he was a professor and chairman of the department of meteorology at Lyndon State.  He is currently the cp-chief meteorology at WeatherBell Analytics in Boston.
