Hello and thank you for stopping by to learn more about me and my passion for weather, nature, and people!

About Alex

Alex Calamia is the weekend meteorologist for WCJB-TV20 in Gainesville, Florida. Alex was on-air to talk viewers through Hurricane Irma and report their stories after the storm passed. Through his dual role as a meteorologist and reporter, Alex has covered record-breaking rain, hard freezes, winter weather threats, and the impact of daily summer Florida thunderstorms. Alex holds a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey – New Brunswick, with a minor in Environmental Policy, Institution, and Behavior.
Before working on-air in Florida, Alex freelanced as a weather producer for WPIX-11 in New York City. That’s where he realized his passion for describing weather with creative graphics under tight deadlines in a highly competitive television space.
At Rutgers University, Alex broadcasted the weather for 4 years. He developed presentation skills and a talent for creating WSI weather graphics. Alex held the position of treasurer and then president of the local AMS and NWA local chapter, the Rutgers Meteorology Club – where he actively led the club in educational outreach.
Outside of meteorology, Alex has a passion for photography, nature, and community service. Alex loves to explore the stunning green spaces in North Central Florida and is an active part of Florida’s gardening and agriculture community
