Jeff Berardelli has served as the weekend evening meteorologist for CBS4 since 2007. Jeff arrived back in sunny Florida after 4 years as a morning meteorologist at WCBS-TV in New York City and fill-in weather anchor for the CBS Early Show. While there he helped build the 9-11 Tunnel to Towers event in lower Manhattan. He has now brought the yearly 5k down to the South Florida area to honor the heroes of 9-11 and raise money for our wounded veteran’s.
Having also worked in Tampa, Jeff has spent the better part of his career here in Florida forecasting hurricanes and severe weather. But Jeff’s enthusiasm for weather dates all the way back to the age of three. Since that very early age Jeff has had pinpoint focus in reaching the goal of working as a TV meteorologist. Jeff says “It has always been a part of my fiber and I’m grateful every day to be living my dream”.
While at CBS4 Jeff also created ZoomRadar, an interactive radar map for the internet and mobile, which is currently being used on CBSMiami.com. In addition to Jeff’s work at CBS4 he is also a professor of Meteorology at the University of Miami.
Now living in South Florida for over 5 years Jeff’s passion has become serving the community. Besides helping organize the Ft Lauderdale Tunnel to Towers run, Jeff is very active with the Children’s Cancer Caring Center. The CCCC is a 47 year local South Florida charity which provides free life saving cancer care for children who come from limited means and may not have insurance. Jeff is on the board of the CCCC and organizes fundraiser events for the charity. He also organizes a yearly fundraiser for Neighbors 4 Neighbors, CBS4’s community charity. “It is vitally important to me that I work hand and hand with the South Florida community to help make a difference locally”, says Jeff.
On his off days he loves to spend time fishing, scuba diving and kayaking in his favorite place in the world, the Florida keys!
