Jared Cerullo, Forecaster
Jared got his first taste of the power of mother nature in his late teens when the Haysville/Andover tornado of April 26th, 1991 left his boyhood neighborhood in shambles and several of his neighbors dead. Since then, Jared’s fascination with the power of the sky has never waned. Shortly after high school, Jared began working for KFDI, the #1 radio news and weather outlet in his hometown and spent 14 years writing, reporting and anchoring the news there. During that time, Jared won a handful of regional and two national Edward R. Murrow awards for his reporting of breaking news and spot news. Lightning nearly struck twice for Jared on the night of May 3rd, 1999. While Jared was working for KFDI, he literally chased a massive tornado right to his own neighborhood” the same neighborhood that had been leveled eight years prior by the infamous Haysville/Andover tornado. In 2007, Jared made the jump from radio into television by going to work for KAKE TV, the ABC affiliate in Wichita. In 2014, Jared joined The Storm Report and continues to call Wichita, Kansas, his home.
Eric Burris, Tropical Meteorologist
As a child, Eric was petrified of the afternoon storms that Florida is well known for. He would run and hide. “I still remember the weatherman coming on TV and talking about the storms. I knew if he said it would be ok, then it would be.” That’s the whole reason Eric wanted to be a weatherman: to help people be safe when the skies darken. Eric’s greatest television achievement to date was covering Hurricane Charley in Orlando, when it took a turn for the worse. “I’m living my dream, and enjoying the heck out of it!” Eric received his education from Mississippi State University. In 2007, he earned the Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society. In his free time, Eric loves taking care of his saltwater fish. He also has a very strong musical background, and loves helping out with marching bands, and cheering on his younger brother Jason, who is a member of the Boston Crusaders Drum And Bugle Corps.
