Rising Stars: Meet Cesar Cornejo of Cedarcroft

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cesar Cornejo.

Hi Cesar, can you introduce yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
I started my career in the news after graduating from Towson University with an internship at WMAR-2 News in the summer of 2018. From there, I was hired as a weekend meteorologist in Pocatello, Idaho, in the summer of 2019. I worked there for almost two years, making my way up to morning meteorologist before leaving for Salt Lake City. In Salt Lake City, I was the weekend meteorologist once again but shifted around to every spot they needed me in. After about a year, I was missing home and a little burnt out, so I decided to come back east. Luck was on my side as WMAR-2 News was searching for a freelance meteorologist, which then solidified my presence in Baltimore to now.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has been a challenging road for me. Besides the usual growing pains with work, being across the country, away from home, and not knowing anyone was tough. My family and friends have always been my biggest supporters, so being far from them was a big-time obstacle.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a tv meteorologist for WMAR-2 News. What I have been told I am most known for is my excitement and my social media presence, and my excitement explains when the weather starts to go a bit crazy. I am most proud of my coverage of the Labor Day wind storm of 2020 that ripped through Idaho and Utah and my daily in-depth coverage of Utah’s fifth wettest monsoon season.

What’s next?
I look forward to becoming a big part of the Baltimore community and telling the amazing people the ins and outs of the weather forecast. Hopefully for many years to come.
