The Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center is pleased to announce its latest Hall of Fame inductee for 2012. Fred Gadomski joined us in Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day - February 2 - in the Weather Discovery Center lobby for the official announcement and ceremony.

Host and co-producer of Weather World, founding member of the Weather Communications Group, instructor at Penn State Dept. of Meteorology, Fred Gadomski continues his research to further science education and communicate weather information to the public. A native of Massachusetts, his interest in weather 'sparked' at an early age and 'led to a bonfire' for the rest of his life. He has received numerous awards, one of which was being named broadcaster of the year by the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters.
