Charlie Ironmonger joined WITN in October 2012. He is a meteorologist from the beautiful but rainy Seattle, Washington.

Charlie started off his education studying business marketing. But as he continued school, he lost interest in economics. He attended a mid-life crisis seminar when he was 19 and quickly realized weather was the subject matter for him. During his time studying meteorology at the University of Washington, he interned at the National Weather Service and at KOMO News in downtown Seattle. After forecasting the snow/ice storm that shut down western Washington and left many without power, he knew his goal was to be a TV meteorologist.

Charlie is also passionate about community outreach and community service. In Seattle, he guest taught at local elementary schools, helped raise funds for children with special needs and revamped the weather portion of NOAA’s annual Science Camp. He is very excited about continuing community service here in eastern North Carolina.

Charlie is an avid college football and basketball fan and believes March Madness should be recognized as a national holiday (yes, the entire month).

From the culinary arts to ECU football, Charlie is excited to experience all that the Eastern Carolina culture has to offer.
