John Fuller came to St. Louis in June of 1983, recently celebrating 30 years of weather coverage in St. Louis. Despite his longevity, John Says, "just when I think I have St. Louis area weather figured out, a new wrinkle develops, like the 2012 drought or Spring 2013 tornadoes. With the weather constantly changing, we must adapt and adjust as meteorologists."

Fuller earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from The Pennsylvania State University in May of 1975. Fuller's first job in his field was with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Air Quality Division as an Air Pollution Meteorologist. He then joined WJIM TV 6 in Lansing as their weekend weathercaster.

From Lansing, John joined KSDK-TV in St. Louis where he was honored with the American Meteorological Society's Seal of Approval. He also received the local Emmy Award for Best Weathercaster during his stay at KSDK.

A local favorite, John joined News 11 in October, 2008 as Chief Meteorologist and has taught Meteorology at University College (Washington University night school) and currently at St. Louis Community College in Wildwood..
