Lynette Charles


I joined WMAR-TV as a meteorologist in August 2010.

I began my career at The Weather Channel as a camera operator. I was also chosen as one out of four competitors to participate in the Weather Channel's "Practice Team Program".

I became the weekend meteorologist at WDEF, in Chattanooga, TN. While there, I was an active member of the community.

I was the morning Meteorologist and co-anchor of a two hour morning news show at WPMT in York, PA. I attended and reported local events, gained many loyal viewers, participated in community affairs and gave school talks to local schools.

I have always had the belief that if I were given the opportunity, I would make the science of weather come alive for my television audience.

I received a Bachelor degree in Radio and Broadcast Journalism from Cal State-LA in Los Angeles, CA, and a Certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University.

I am also a member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).

I am originally from Silver Spring and in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love animals, traveling and watching and playing all sports.
