Jason joined the Action News Now weather team as the weekend meteorologist in the Fall of 2013. He was born and raised in the metro Detroit area where his passion for weather began. In the summer, Jason would sit in the window and watch thunderstorms as they rolled through.
Before joining Action News Now, Jason had internships at WJRT in Flint, Michigan and WDIV in Detroit Michigan. He graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in meteorology and minored in mathematics, geographical information science, and environmental studies. The next chapter of Jason's life took him to Grand Junction, Colorado where he worked as the Weekend Meteorologist for KJCT News 8.
When Jason isn't working, he loves to spend time outdoors. He likes to go on hikes and explore new areas. Another hobby of his is cooking. He likes to try all different kinds of foods and likes to experiment with different recipes. He's also a fan of Detroit sports teams, especially the Detroit Red Wings and the Detroit Lions.
If you have any suggestions for hikes or day trips, want to share a recipe, or have any questions about weather, he'd love to hear from you. Feel free to email him at JAtcho@ActionNewsNow.com or send him a message on Facebook by searching Meteorologist Jason Atcho.
