The Press of Atlantic City, which has led the newspaper industry with its weather reporting, now gives you another reason to trust its coverage.


Meteorologist Joe Martucci will now be able to showcase the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal in articles, videos, social media and more. Joe is the 931st person to earn the seal since it started in the mid-2000s, in a professional organization of over 13,000.

Meteorologist Joe Martucci earned the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) seal from the American Meteorological Society, the country's largest technical and professional weather organization, in July. Founded in 1919, the AMS has more than 12,000 members, including professionals, students, and weather enthusiasts.  Since it began awarding its CBM seal in 2005, only 931 meteorologists who have earned the designation.

“The Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation clearly recognizes that the holders have the educational background and have been tested in their knowledge and communication of the sciences needed to be an effective broadcast meteorologist,” said AMS Executive Director Stella Kafka. “The general public can have added confidence in the quality and reliability of weather presentations made by broadcast meteorologists approved by the Society.”

To earn the CBM, broadcasters must hold a degree in meteorology or equivalent from an accredited college or university, pass a rigorous written examination, and have their video work reviewed to assess graphical content, explanation, and presentation skills.

After earning the seal, CBMs have to earn professional development points in order to maintain their certification. These points can be earned by attending scientific meetings, volunteering within the society and public events.
