My name is Pierce Legeion. I am a graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and a minor in Global Business Strategies for the Earth, Energy, and Materials Industries.
My interest in the weather started at the age of 5 when the Weather Channel was my favorite channel on TV. I can remember as a kid sneaking downstairs in the middle of the night during the Blizzard of '93 to watch the storm unfold on live TV. I drove my family crazy at times as a result, but weather was definitely my passion then and still is today.
My love for weather has taken me to great places. From pursuing my education at Penn State to chasing tornadoes in the Great Plains of the central US to stops in West Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia working as a broadcast meteorologist, my love for the weather grows with each new experience.
I started my career at the television station in my hometown, WNCTV 7. I gained lots of experience in everything from production work behind the scenes to on-air work on a live show aired weekly along with a weekly live weathercast. That experience led me to WDTV 5 News and WVFX Fox 10 News in Clarksburg, WV where I was the weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter for Marion and Taylor County, WV for 6 months and the morning meteorologist for 2 and a half years. Next, I spent 3 years as the weekend morning meteorologist and a weather/science/environmental/feature reporter for WNCT 9 On Your Side in Greenville, NC. I then moved to Augusta, GA to serve as a meteorologist and reporter for WFXG FOX 54 News Now.
I hope you have enjoyed your stay so far. Feel free to send me an email and let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting my website. Have a great day!
