AMS Certified Consulting Meteorologist #756
AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist #126
Right Weather LLC founder Fred Campagna has made a career out of trying his hardest to be right all of the time. Of course, with New England’s fickle weather, that’s impossible, but Fred enjoys the challenge of striving for perfection. Fred has more than 21 years’ experience on-air including work in two of the top ten markets in the United States. Fred is one of the few meteorologists nationwide with the American Meteorology Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) and Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) distinctions.
Fred currently works as an on-air meteorologist at WGCL CBS46 in Atlanta, GA. Prior to moving to Atlanta, Fred spent 20 years in Southern New England television markets. Fred worked at Boston 25 News, the FOX affiliate in the ninth largest television market in the country in 2019 and 2014-15. Prior to his most recent time at Boston 25 News, he was Senior On-Air Meteorologist at WTNH-TV News8 in the Hartford-New Haven, CT television market.
Fred’s television career at WLNE-TV ABC6 in Providence spanned nearly 14 years, beginning in 1998. He was promoted to chief meteorologist in 2007. Along the way, Fred earned his American Meteorological Society (AMS) Television Seal of Approval, and he became the first in Southern New England to earn the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist distinction from the AMS. In his final year at ABC6 and in his first year at CBS46 in Atlanta, his team was certified as the most accurate forecast in the television market by Weatherate – an independent forecast verification service.
Fred is a Rhode Islander, having earned his BS in Meteorology from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. He also has BA in Economics from the University of Colorado. Fred lives in Bristol with his wife, Diane, and their three children. When he’s not watching the weather like a hawk, he enjoys running, reading, developing web sites for small businesses, and spending time with his extended family.
