A former broadcast meteorologist sharing my views and insights on a variety of topics, including meteorology, faith, fitness, communication and current events.
Rich Rogers is a former broadcast meteorologist from Augusta, Georgia, forecasting the area’s weather professionally for 10 years, most of which was at WAGT (NBC 26). After WAGT was purchased by another company, Rich served at WJBF NewsChannel 6 as a meteorologist and web content producer in 2016. In December 2016, Rich left broadcasting and began a career in higher education web content and development at Augusta University.
Rich graduated from Greenbrier High School in Evans, Georgia. In 2003, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, with an emphasis in television and cinema, from Augusta State University (now Augusta University). In 2011, Rich also completed the 3-year Broadcast Meteorology Program at Mississippi State University. He earned the broadcast seal of approval from the National Weather Association.
Rich was born and raised in Augusta, and most of his family lives in the area, although extended family members live in South Carolina, Virginia and Florida. Rich is married to Stephanie and is also a dad to an active little boy!
