Craig Allen ’79 is always excited to come back to Stony Brook University. Whether mentoring students at an alumni networking mixer or, most recently, moderating the Town Hall on The New York Climate Exchange with President Maurie McInnis, Allen feels right at home on campus.
After graduating with a BS in Earth and Space Sciences, Allen has carved out a highly successful career in meteorology. He is currently the chief meteorologist for WCBS/AM-880, and has held that position for over four decades. He also spent time at WCBS-TV, Fox5-WNYW, WPIX-TV and now at News 12.
As both a leading meteorologist and a proud alumnus, Allen was thrilled to have been part of the university’s historic announcement regarding The Exchange, the anchor institution for a world-leading climate solutions center on Governors Island in New York City.
