Meteorologist Jeff Renner earns weather honor

KING-TV chief meteorologist Jeff Renner has been named a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society, a designation that recognizes education, experience and expertise in science and environmental issues.

KING-TV chief meteorologist Jeff Renner has been named a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society, a designation that recognizes education, experience and expertise in science and environmental issues.

Renner is the only broadcaster currently working in the Seattle market to earn the distinction, first introduced nationally in 2005.

Renner joined KING in 1977 as a science reporter, and three years later was named weather anchor. In addition to holding a journalism degree, he earned a B.S. in atmospheric sciences from the University of Washington in 1988.

"Jeff is the guy every other broadcast meteorologist is measured against," said Pat Costello, vice president and KING station manager.

Renner's five-day weather forecast is available daily in The Seattle Times.
