AMS Certified Meteorologist Brad Nitz joined WSB-TV in January 2006. His forecasts can be seen weekdays on Channel 2 Action News at 5 p.m., The Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11 pm and whenever severe weather breaks.

Brad has received numerous awards for his work as a meteorologist, including an Emmy award for his work covering Hurricane Irma in 2017. Brad also has several other Emmy nominations for coverage of metro Atlanta’s tornadoes and flooding. He has won the Excellence Award from the Atlanta chapter of the American Meteorological Society for “Outstanding and innovative live team coverage” of severe weather.

Brad also won "Best Weather Reporting" from the Associated Press several times over the years, including for his work covering tornadoes, severe weather, and winter storms in metro Atlanta.

Brad graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Meteorology. He holds the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation from the American Meteorological Society. The CBM is the highest certification a broadcast meteorologist can obtain.

Relatively few meteorologists have completed this rigorous certification and Brad is one of the first 90 meteorologists in the country to do so. This means you can count on Brad to bring you the most accurate and dependable weather forecasts during severe weather or sunshine and everything in between.

Prior to joining WSB-TV, Brad worked as a meteorologist for NBC News. He worked much of his early career forecasting hurricanes and tornadoes in Florida at stations in Orlando and Jacksonville.
