AJ Colby Profile
AJ Colby is an American Meteorologist working at WJW-TV Fox 8 in Cleveland, Ohio. He joined the station in August 2018.
AJ Colby Career
Colby serves at Fox 8 as a meteorologist. He grew up in the legendary “Snowbelt.” He knew he wanted to be a meteorologist from a very early age. After a massive tornado outbreak in May of 1985, AJ witnessed the awesome and awful destruction caused by an EF5 tornado in Albion, Pennsylvania. AJ was only 10 years old at the time, but this event indelibly etched fascination, passion, and respect for the weather into his conscience. Ultimately, this deep experience led to a career that would hopefully help people survive by warning people in advance about potentially life-threatening and devastating weather events like the Albion tornado.
When the Morning Show first debuted in the winter of 1988, AJ began reporting local temperatures and snowfall data to various media outlets, primarily to Fox 8’s very own meteorologist, André Bernier. Throughout his high school and college years, and beyond, he was blessed with the chance to have André as his mentor. When he was just 16 years of age at WSEE-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania, the local CBS affiliate, AJ had an incredible opportunity to start his career as a television weathercaster.
Soon after, WJW Television hired him. This was an amazing opportunity for a 19-year-old college student, and in many ways, unprecedented. On many of the Newscenter 8 newscasts, AJ was honored to fill in, having the extraordinary opportunity to work with heavyweight characters such as the legendary Dick Goddard, Robin Swoboda, Tim Taylor, Wilma Smith, and André Bernier. AJ received his bachelor’s degree from Ohio State University in “Arts and Sciences.” This was thanks in no small part to André Bernier’s guidance and advice.
After graduating, AJ landed his first full-time, on-air position at WICU-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania, the local NBC affiliate. He helped focus AJ’s collegiate studies on the appropriate classes and experiences necessary to learn about the atmosphere and predict disruptive weather events. AJ started working full-time in Cleveland in the spring of 2000 and is now honored to serve as a staff meteorologist at WJW Fox 8.
