Mike Doyle

Mike Doyle is WTAJ’s Noon and Central PA Live Meteorologist. Mike joined WTAJ back in March of 2018 to return closer to home. He grew up in Horsham, PA, just north of Philadelphia. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Meteorology from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL.

Mike has always had a fascination of flying and weather. While he was in high school, he went for his private pilot license and flew Cessna 172 Skyhawks. While flying, he realized it was the weather that really piqued his interest, and that is what he decided he wanted to spend the rest of his life doing.

Mike got his first real experience with tornadoes and hurricanes in Montgomery, Alabama, where he spent his first year and a half as a Meteorologist. His career then took him to Medford, Oregon, where he spent the next three years witnessing the beauty of the west coast, but also the tragic destruction from wildfires. Mike says there is nothing like seeing ash fall like snow and having it stick to your car. The sun would be blocked out for days at a time because of how thick the smoke was from nearby wildfires.

Family is a big part of Mike’s life, and that drove him to WTAJ, just a car ride away from family and friends. Mike loves all Philly sports, hunting, fishing, hiking, cooking and of course his dog Mozzie.

Join Mike and other WTAJ viewers for this once in a lifetime experience.
