John Coleman Broadcast Award

  John Morales, Chief Meteorologist for NBC6 in Miami, Florida is the 2018 recipient of the inaugural John Coleman Broadcast Award.


John's work to inform and prepare the public during the 2017 Hurricane Season had a significant impact for Southern Florida.

His accurate weather predictions helped viewers during Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Hurricane Irene in 1999, and throughout the numerous hurricanes in the mid 2000s.

In 2005, John was honored with the second of his three Emmy Awards for his coverage of Hurricane Wilma. In what could be considered his most important scientific recognition, John earned the 2007 American Meteorological Society Outstanding Contribution to the Advance of Applied Meteorology Award. He is one of very few broadcast meteorologists elected to be a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society.
