Sam Dunaiski

Broadcast Meteorologist
A little more about Sam...

Sam Dunaiski grew up in Duluth, MN. He loves the fact that Duluth is clean, laid-back and slow paced. He also enjoyed the various weather that Duluth would have year round. It wasn’t until high school that he decided to study meteorology. His high school guidance counselor told him to pursue a job that you will have an interest in all the time. And that is what led Sam to a degree in weather. Sam attended UW-Madison and received his B.S. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science. He is the oldest of three and is married.

Favorite Sport? I used to participate in high school basketball and soccer, but now I am an avid runner. I have completed two marathons and several half marathons.
When I was younger I wanted to be? An archeologist, Indiana Jones inspired me a little bit, plus I just wanted to play in dirt! A paleontologist job interested me as well. But if I had to go back to school for something, it would be culinary school. I would love to be a chef. (I've been told I look like Bobby Flay.)
Favorite CD/Album? Hands down... it has to be Weezer's Blue Album. It's the first cd that I could listen to every single song.
Proudest Moment? It's a tie between a chicken McNugget eating contest (58 nuggets in 10 minutes.) and watching my wife defend her PhD thesis in genetics.
