(October 23, 1945 – January 18, 2012)

Early life and education

Goldstein was born in Swampscott, Massachusetts in 1945,[1] where, as Goldstein himself put it, "the conversation was always about the weather."[clarification needed] He earned a degree in meteorology from Penn State in 1967, followed by a doctorate from New York University.

Career

In 1972, Goldstein took up a teaching job at Western Connecticut State University He established the only meteorology bachelor's degree in the state, and began to run WestConn's weather center, which supplied forecasting information to 20 local radio and television stations. Goldstein joined WTNH as a meteorologist in 1986. He became somewhat of a local celebrity in Connecticut from these broadcasts, eventually becoming WTNH's chief meteorologist. In 1999, he authored the Complete Idiot's Guide to Weather. He held the honorary title of Director Emeritus at the Western Connecticut State University Weather Center.[citation needed]

Personal life

In 1996 Goldstein was diagnosed with a multiple myeloma, which his doctors predicted would claim his life within three years.[2] Hoping to beat the diagnosis, Goldstein underwent a series of treatments at Yale-New Haven Hospital and he far outlived his initial prognosis. He returned to work at WTNH, though on a limited air schedule.[citation needed]

Retirement

On August 23, 2011, WTNH announced Goldstein's retirement after 25 years of service. In celebration of his service, the station produced a prime-time tribute to Goldstein.[3]
