At the age of 6 years, Brad had already decided on his career path which was to become a meteorologist. He attended The Ohio State University where he pursued his dream and passion to become one of the best meteorologists. Throughout his senior and junior years at OSU, Brad got the opportunity to chase storms together with his fellow students and also professors during the Spring quarter.
After graduating from OSU, he got his first job in Dayton, Ohio at the NBC station doing the morning shift. After some time Brad was offered a unique opportunity by a FOX affiliate station.

In the year 2005, he went back to his old station to help out before a hurricane struck the Gulf Coast. As a result, he ended up being amid of the worst Hurricanes in U.S. history called Hurricane Katrina.

It all started as a funny joke between moms’ Facebook group who happened to love Brad Panovich, the WCNC Chief Meteorologist that transformed into an unbelievable way to give back to the Carolinas for Hurricane Florence relief efforts. The moms helped out in buying Brad gift cards for dinner after they discovered that he was working during his breaks to cover Florence for days.
After some time, the moms had too much money and decided to obtain supplies for Florence’s victims. Then followed a post that was suggesting a t-shirt fundraiser and the pre-orders started turning up. 100% of the earnings from the sale of the t-shirts branded “I’m a Brad FANovich” would go directly to hurricane relief efforts.
