MICHAEL ESTIME - Meteorologist


Morning & Noon Meteorologist at WTVQ ABC 36 in “The Horse Capital of the World” Lexington, KY.

I am so happy to be joining our sister station, WTVQ, in the beautiful Blue Grass State of Kentucky.  If you’re up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning, you can catch me handling morning and noon weather duties on ABC 36's Good Morning Kentucky from 5:00am - 7:00am & at Noon & 12:30pm.

I am a proud graduate of Central Michigan University and earned degrees in both Meteorology and Mathematics.

I started my career working behind the scenes at WWJ-TV CBS Detroit through the Emma L. Bowen Foundation (EBF) and was awarded a 5-year work/study with CBS News. The EBF allowed me the opportunity to work with meteorologists all over the country from New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Detroit to The Weather Channel.  In 2009, the EFB
honored me with its coveted “Outstanding Student of the Year” award. My next jump took me to the "Song & Soul of the South," Macon, Georgia. I served as our Morning Meteorologist at our Morris Multimedia sister station, WMGT 41 NBC, before being promoted to our Chief Meteorologist. I got a taste of just about everything in Georgia, from blistering hot summers to rare snow & ice storms. The historic April 27-28th, 2011 tornado outbreak in the southeast serves as my piece of humble pie as to the power of Mother Nature. Your safety before, during and after a storm is my number one priority. Rain or shine, day or night, my passion for the weather, commitment to our community, and optimistic outlook are qualities that you can count on. 

I am a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.

In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, playing the clarinet, and spending time with friends and family (including my identical twin brother!)
