Bay is an Emmy-award winning journalist and a meteorologist.

He began his career in 1999 in Eastern North Carolina and got a taste for news at WNCT during flooding in the wake of Hurricane Floyd.

From North Carolina, he moved to Texas where he reported on President George W. Bush at his Crawford home and the break-up of the Space Shuttle Columbia over Central Texas for KXXV.

In 2003, Bay joined WZVN in Fort Myers where he was an anchor and reporter known for his coverage on the front-lines of Hurricane Charley and the numerous storms that later followed in 2005.

After several years on Florida’s west coast, Bay moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to work for KSTP as a reporter and was awarded an Emmy for his coverage of breaking news. Bay was also a fill-in meteorologist while at KSTP and covered a wide range of weather events from snow to tornadoes.

In 2010, Bay joined WeatherNation-TV where he forecast the weather for television markets nationwide and KARE-TV’s digital weather channel.

Once “done” with below freezing temperatures of Minnesota winters, Bay and his wife moved to Miami for a much warmer climate. Bay commuted to West Palm Beach every weekend where he was a popular weekend meteorologist for WPTV.

Currently, Bay is a web producerand utilizes his 15 years of television news writing and weather forecasting with CBSMIAMI.COM in addition to his on-air work each weekend morning.

When he isn’t digging up news or forecasting the weather, Bay and his wife enjoy the many beaches of South Florida and taking care of their two dogs, Gatsby and Bailey.
