Best Local Meteorologist

The weather is always changing in Wisconsin, and the same dynamism applied in 2019 to the TV weather landscape. All three finalists from last year’s poll moved off the small screen, leaving room for three new names. However, 2019’s Best Local Meteorologist is a familiar face: WEAU 13 News’s Darren Maier, approaching a decade delivering our forecast and deservedly now in the Best of the Valley Poll rankings. His new colleague, Tucker Antico, swirls right into second place, while WQOW News 18’s “Daybreak” meteorologist, Justin Esterly, won the hearts of Chippewa Vallians for a third-place score. – Luc Anthony
