Meteorologist Jay Gallé joins WDSU from another NBC station in the Hearst Television family -- KSBW TV in Salinas, Calif. But for Jay, there's more than one family that's glad to have him in New Orleans.
This is his home, and after a number of years away, he's excited to be back among his parents and siblings, and to join the WDSU ExactWeather weather team.
Jay graduated from Holy Cross High School in the Lower 9th Ward and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Loyola University. His first experience in local television came as a sports producer, but he wasn't always set on a career in broadcasting.
Jay is a proud former United States Marine and was at one time assigned as a reservist to Belle Chasse Naval Air Station. He later worked as an actor and producer in Southern California, and from there, turned his attention to the weather. He began forecasting for KSBW in 2006. In 2009, he earned his certificate of Broadcast Meteorology at Mississippi State University. Jay has earned the Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society and is also a member of the National Weather Association.
Jay's primary assignments team him with "WDSU News This Morning" anchors Randi Rousseau and Sula Kim, and traffic reporter Susan Isaacs.
