HIGHLY ACCOMPLISHED, EXPERIENCED AND AWARD WINNING TELEVISION WEATHER (& NEWS) ANCHOR/PRODUCER/REPORTER
CHIEF METEOROLOGIST, KTMF-TV, MISSOULA, MT
8/2012 - CURRENT
JUST IN: Winner of the 2014 Montana State Broadcaster’s Assn. Best Weathercaster of the Year Award! Not your typical Chief Meteorologist job. ABC/FOX didn’t have local newscasts when I arrived, but now we have 5:30, 9 and 10 PM newscasts along with a midday weather webcast. Before all that could happen, a weather center had to be built literally from the ground up.
We use Weather Central’s new FUSION system. Each day, over 140 temperatures and 90 weather icons are updated to produce a dynamic, viewer friendly and highly profitable weathercast.
Consistently recognized by Weather Central as a highly skilled and creative user of their system ... and by viewers as a genuine friend they can count on.
