Blake is no stranger to Michigan, as he grew up, went to college, and has worked exclusively in the Great Lakes state.
Starting in 2017, he worked at UpNorthLive (WPBN-TV) in Traverse City, Michigan, kickstarting his meteorology career covering severe weather and winter storms across Northern Michigan. His last role at UpNorthLive was as a weekday morning meteorologist making sure early risers had their forecast for the day.
