Cruz Medina

Cruz joined WSMV in September 2022. He joins us from WBAY in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

He attended North Carolina State University and studied Meteorology and Spanish earning bachelor's degrees in both. Cruz served as an officer for NCSU Weather and did weekly forecasts for them during his time at NC State.

Cruz's passion for forecasting and his love for weather began at the age of 5. He would watch storms roll in on the horizon with his grandpa and would run outside when it lightened and thundered (instead of staying inside as he should've). He always knew he wanted to study meteorology, but a tornado outbreak in April of 2011 that impacted his hometown of Wilson, NC further solidified his passion for weather. Now he enjoys forecasting severe weather!

Cruz serves on the American Meteorological Society Board of Broadcast, as an ambassador for the AMS Latinx Committee, and is also a member of the National Weather Association.
