TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Max Tsaparis has earned the American Meteorological Society's (AMS) Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation, a professional recognition of the quality of his weather broadcasts.

Among TV meteorologists, the CBM seal is sought as a mark of distinction and recognition. Max joins Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse as a fellow member of this certification.

“The Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation clearly recognizes that the holders have the educational background and have been tested in their knowledge and communication of the sciences needed to be an effective broadcast meteorologist,” said AMS Executive Director Keith Seitter. “The general public can have added confidence in the quality and reliability of weather presentations made by broadcast meteorologists approved by the Society.”

The AMS awards the CBM seal to broadcast meteorologists who hold a meteorology or atmospheric science degree, pass a rigorous written examination, and have their on-air work reviewed to assess graphical content, explanation, and presentation skills.

Founded in 1919, the AMS promotes the development and dissemination of research pertaining to atmospheric sciences. The society has a membership of more than 14,000 professionals, students, and weather enthusiasts.
