Ross Hull has had a lifelong passion for weather and he’s excited to be putting his meteorological skills to work at Global News.
Throughout his cross country travels Ross has reported on some of the biggest weather stories in Canada, including the national coverage in the lead up and aftermath of the historic Alberta floods in June 2013. Closer to home, he was on the air during the December 2013 ice storm and the August 2014 Burlington flooding for Global Toronto.
Hull started his weather career in 2004 at The Weather Network in Ontario, later moving to Vancouver to become the network’s B.C. Bureau Chief. In 2008, Hull relocated to Calgary to work for Citytv as a reporter, weather anchor, and Breakfast Television host, getting to intimately know the variability of Southern Alberta weather.
Hull travelled back to Ontario to work for CTV in London overseeing the weather department for both London and Windsor, before moving to Kitchener for a position as Lead Meteorologist and co-host for the Noon News at CTV in Kitchener. In January of 2013, Hull returned to Toronto for a position at CBC where he delivered forecasts for CBC News Network, The National, as well as the local Toronto newscasts before joining Global News in early 2014, later becoming weekend Global News at 6 meteorologist.
Born and raised in Montreal, Hull started acting at a very young age. Appearing in various television commercials and theatre productions, his performance career led to starring roles in several television series, including Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Student Bodies before he decided to pursue a career in meteorology.
Hull is a graduate of the Meteorology program at Mississippi State University and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University. Apart from meteorology, Hull enjoys staying active under all weather conditions.
