T.J. Springer


T.J. Springer is an Emmy-Award-winning meteorologist for WGAL News 8. You can catch him on News 8 at Noon or Saturday and Sunday evenings at 6,10, and 11.

T.J. has received the American Meteorological Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist distinction, which is the highest designation from the organization. It requires a rigorous exam and review of his on-air weathercasts. T.J. has also been honored by the Iowa Broadcast News Association for his severe weather coverage.

T.J. hails from Maryland but has worked in the Ohio Valley, Upper Midwest, the Central High Plains, the Ozarks and now the Susquehanna Valley. This is a bit of a homecoming for T.J., as he grew up about an hour south of Lancaster.

T.J. has worked at WOAY TV in Oak Hill, WV, KTIV TV in Sioux City, IA, KSNW-TV in Wichita, KS, and KOLR 10/Ozarks FOX in Springfield, MO. Springer was the AM Meteorologist at three of his last four TV stations - so he’ll never stray away from a cup of coffee!

Before he got his start in the world of meteorology, he interned in Baltimore, MD at WBFF Fox 45.

T.J. graduated from Millersville University with his Bachelors of Science in Meteorology. He was largely involved in musical theatre and choir during his time at MU which drove him to pursue a minor in music. This is where he started to feel comfortable in front of an audience and eventually in front of a camera. T.J. loves hiking as well as the outdoors and is excited to explore the Valley even more. He also loves golf so if you have any recommendations, send them his way. If you don’t find him there or down in Ocean City, you’ll probably see him walking and playing with his adorable Shichon puppy, Gizmo.
