Mark Collins Career

Collins came to The Weather Authority after working in marine research at the Florida Institute of Oceanography. He was actively involved in deploying buoys in the Gulf that contribute essential weather data to his broadcasts. Before his research phase, Collins made his mark during a four-year time at WTSP in Tampa. Despite his native ties to Tampa Bay, his childhood was filled with memories of shrimp casting around Friendship Fountain on the Southbank, along with visits to family residing on the Westside.

Collins first came to WJXT in 2010 but started tracking Jacksonville storms on-air in 2003. He has covered every corner of the state during his television career. He was in Jacksonville just in time to cover the record 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons. This followed his work within hurricane-prone areas, including anchoring weather at Miami’s WTVJ and contributing to the forecast center at WFOR. His contribution extended to Tallahassee, where he laid the foundation for the weather program at Florida’s News Channel’s statewide cable network start-up during the late 1990s.

More Information

His meteorological journey started from his personal experiences during severe weather events—like Hurricane Elena in 1985 and the 1993 Storm of the Century—that left an indelible mark.

Collins recalls the three days held up in a shelter as Elena churned 60 miles offshore. His direct encounters with some of Florida’s most terrifying hurricanes have equipped him with a realistic perspective on storms, striking a balance between understanding their impact.

During his leisure moments, he delights in beach outings with his daughter and wife, or exploring the rich culinary of Jacksonville’s small ethnic eateries.
