After 10 years and six cities, Chris Cerenelli’s journalism career has brought him back home.

Chris is the weekend morning weather forecaster for WFMJ Weekend Today and reports weeknights.

Chris was born and raised in Youngstown and comes to 21 News from WEVV 44 News in Evansville, Indiana, where he was weeknight evening co-anchor and producer. He helped relaunch the station’s news department in 2015. 

Before that, Chris did nearly every job you can think of during stops in Nashville, Dayton, Lima, Erie, and Zanesville. His responsibilities included weather forecasting, shooting and editing his stories, and running the assignment desk. 

Chris says, “It’s a great time to be in Youngstown and I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys!”

Away from his weather and news duties, you’ll most likely find Chris pursuing his passions in the gym or on the golf course.

Chris is also a fan of traditional country music. He’s an experienced singer and musician who’s performed with some of the top touring musicians in Nashville.
