What You Enjoy About Local News:

As a meteorologist, doing local news is the best place to be. Weather touches every part of our lives, from farming to football to everyday dress. In East Tennessee, the weather on the plateau can be very different than the weather in the southern valley. Local news gives me a chance to challenge myself, and to bring you the most up to date forecast for your backyard.
