The Northern Ag Network is proud to provide five weather programs, Monday through Friday, produced by well-known Montana Weathercaster John Pulasky. Listeners can hear John's reports five times daily on affiliated stations in Montana, Wyoming, and the Western Dakotas, and many have come to trust his forecasts to plan their daily routine.
Our five network weather programs are strategically scheduled at intervals to give the most complete picture of developing weather patterns, and to provide that critical information at the times when it is most usable by radio listeners. The first report of the day is fed to affiliated stations at 6:41AM, in time for the early morning news block, with one-minute updates at 8:41AM and 12:54PM offering a regional look at weather that provides the latest forecast from Northern Ag Net. The 11:41AM feed provides an in-depth midday update on current conditions. Finally, at 4:41PM an evening weather program is fed to stations for play in their evening drive slot as part of their daily local news and information wrap.
With extensive experience in weather reporting, John Pulasky has been producing radio and television station weathercasts since 1976. John's family farms near Huntley, Montana. He was born in Great Falls, went to college at MSU-Bozeman, and lived and worked in Missoula...so he knows the territory. He is a private pilot and currently teaches Aviation Meteorology at Rocky Mountain College in Billings. He also serves as a Federal Aviation Administration Safety Counselor for Montana.
In 2003 John was named an NOAA Environmental Hero, by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS). John was nominated for this award by the four National Weather Service offices in Montana.
John Pulasky's lively sense of humor and easy conversational style make his program enjoyable as well as informative. He likes to throw in tidbits of weather trivia, relate to local events and history, and involve the hometown listening audience whenever possible. Not only is he a native son of this area, but he has a bred-in understanding of the importance of agricultural weather applications and is able to serve our region's largest industry like no other weathercaster in the country.
