Charlie Lopresti - Chief Meteorologist

Charlie makes up the "Weather Part" of WGME News 13s evening edition. A native New Englander, he grew up enjoying the area's exciting and sometimes wild weather. At an early age, he knew his love for big storms and weather extremes would some day lead him to a career in meteorology. Charlie received his meteorology degree from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. After graduation, Charlie went to work high atop New England's tallest peak, at the Mount Washington Observatory. As staff meteorologist, he had the unique opportunity to observe, forecast, and conduct important research in "The World's Worst Weather."

Charlie's broadcasting career began up in Bangor at WVII ABC-7. His passion for forecasting New England weather then brought him to WLNE ABC-6 in Providence, RI. After a few years in southern New England, the Maine lifestyle came calling once again, and for most of the past decade, he has called Portland home. Charlie can be seen forecasting Monday through Friday on Live at 5:00, Live at 5:30, News 13 at 6:00, News 13 on Fox at 10:00, and News 13 at 11:00. He has been awarded the American Meteorological Society's seal of approval for quality television weather broadcasts. He has also been designated Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the AMS. His forecast was awarded Best Weathercast for the past four years by the Maine Association of Broadcasters. In addition, his Weathercast also won first place by the Maine Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

Enjoy every nice day outdoors, that sums up Charlie's lifestyle outside of work. When not in the News 13 weather office, you can usually find him, his wife Morningstar, their daughters Catherine and Maris, and dog Barley doing something fun outside. They enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, and cooking during the winter months. When the snow melts, you can usually find them working in the garden, hiking in the White Mountains, or fishing for stripers along the Maine coast..

WGME CBS 13 :: News Team - Gregg Lagerquist

Gregg Lagerquist - Anchor

"Somewhere in Maine today, there's a great story happening...and we need to know it, find it and tell it first!"

That thought sums up Gregg's motivation and his outlook on what it means to be in the news business. "It's about finding the stories that matter to people and telling those stories in a compelling way," says Gregg. "Pretty simple really. But it means so much. I see it as a trust issue. People who have a story to tell have to know they can count on you to get it right. And that goes for the people watching at home, too!"

Gregg has been someone you can count on at News 13 for more than a decade. He grew up in Minnesota and came to News 13 in 1996 from Vermont. He is an award-winning journalist, earning state and national awards, including one of the first ever "Walter Cronkite Awards for Excellence in Political Coverage" presented by Mr. Cronkite, himself. "Highlight of my professional life so far," says Gregg. "Covering George Mitchell in Northern Ireland immediately after the Peace Accords was incredible as well"but a distant second." If you visit Gregg in his office, you can see an autographed copy of the Good Friday Agreement and a picture of a smiling "Walter and Gregg" proudly hanging on the wall. Gregg also works with a number of non-profit groups and charities in Maine"singling out "hear ME now!" as especially close to his heart"a group helping deaf and hard-of-hearing kids in Maine get a great start in life.

When Gregg looks for the best things in his own life, he heads home. His wife, Leslie, co-owns a small business in Maine. "She's amazing! Although, don't tell her I said that. She'll get a big head," jokes Gregg. He and Leslie have three children"two sons, Reece and Max, and a daughter, Tess. ("See... I told you Leslie's amazing!") Gregg enjoys hitting the beach with his family, basketball, bike riding, ultimate frisbee, road trips, and reading biographies. He's a graduate of Carleton College in Minnesota and has a Masters degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Illinois.

If you have a story to tell, Gregg is counting on you to give him a call.
