Meteorologist Mike Tsolinas is a 25-year broadcast veteran who has multiple Emmys to his credit as well as the AMS Meteorological seal of approval.
Mike is a two-time KTNV employee, having worked in Las Vegas from 1997 to 1999 and then most recently since April 2006.
Tsolinas began his career in Duluth, Minnesota with "a couple of wooden weather maps and some great felt markers!" He soon moved to Austin, Texas and then after just 2 1/2 years of TV under his belt, moved to Detroit, Michigan where he spent five years as weekday morning meteorologist and general assignment reporter. His next stop was Chicago where he had a chance to go home for six years before moving to Las Vegas, Minneapolis, San Diego and Los Angeles.
Tsolinas, an avid follower of weather, has worked hard at his craft, spending endless hours of his free time attending meteorological conferences and radar seminars in an effort to always keep up with technology and the latest applied sciences.
Mike is also the creator of "WeatherNutz," a program for children to teach them the world of weather in a fun and innovative way. The program has reached over 100,000 kids nationwide.
In his 25 years of TV, Mike has also done a lot more than weather -- including more than 1000 reporting stories, live shots, golf shows and game shows. He even once interviewed Paul McCartney and Bill Cosby as well as doing the weather with countless celebrities and athletes.
Mike's personal life revolves around his daughter Gabi and his dogs. When he does have time, which is rare, he loves to read, work out (besides his household chores) play golf and fish.
