Rich Caniglia

I have always loved the weather since I was a little kid. I used to run from window to window in the house to watch the snow fall and would watch the TV weatherman everyday.
After high school I attended Cornell University and received a B.S. in Atmospheric Physics, which is a fancy way of saying "the weather".
During college I gave TV weather a try at the Ithaca College Station. I immediately loved being on air and got my first break at WETM-TV in Elmira, New York.  I spent a couple years there then came to 10NBC during the summer of 1999. After less than a year on the weekend shift I took over the 10NBC Today morning show. I have now been getting up by 3 a.m. for over 10 years and look forward to delivering the forecast every morning for many more years to come.
