Jake Dunne is the morning and noon meteorologist for WLNS TV in Lansing, MI. Before moving to Michigan in late 2005, Jake was the Chief Meteorologist for KTWO in Casper, Wyo. Jake was born in Kansas and spent the better part of 20 years there, but between now and then he has called several different areas of the country home.
Jake graduated from Mississippi State with a degree in Atmospheric Science. He began his TV career in Wichita, Kans (his home town) at the CBS affiliate where he worked as a forecaster and weather producer. From there, Jake moved to Myrtle Beach, SC and took a position at WBTW as Weekend Meteorologist. Before calling Lansing home, Jake also made stops in Colorado and Iowa where he worked as a Morning Meteorologist for KCAU. In January of 2003, Jake was awarded the AMS Seal of Approval for his outstanding weather presentations.
Jake took a minor detour from the world of television weather for about a year. He decided to put his skis and his literary talent to the test when he accepted a position at Winter Park Ski Resort in Colorado. While at the resort, Jake gave guided tours of the mountain to visiting media and wrote numerous press releases and articles pertaining to Winter Park. Jake's love for writing didn't stop there as he has two published novels: Johnstone Junction, released in 2008, and Stand By, released in early 2012.
Jake spends his free time outdoors. Whether it's golf, snow skiing, or a trip to the lake, Jake loves being outside. You may also see Jake on some of the local trails or paths, either running or on a bike. Jake is a former 1st class certified personal fitness trainer and can be found in the gym on most days.
His true love isn't weather, writing or skiing though, that honor goes to his son, Brady, and his daughter, Addison. Jake and his wife Holly reside in mid-Michigan along with their rescue dog Gibson.
