John is the weekend morning meteorologist at News 3. He joined WSIL in July of 2018, after completing his bachelor’s degree in Atmospheric Science at the University of Missouri.
John is originally from Sedalia, Missouri, where he first discovered his love for weather. Growing up between two open fields, John spent a lot of time watching storms roll in. Before joining the News 3 Weather Team, John learned the ropes of broadcast television at KOMU in Columbia, Missouri.
John likes to spend his free time exploring local restaurants, visiting the gym to enable his first hobby, and searching for nature’s beauty in and around southern Illinois. He's also a die-hard fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, but splits his allegiance evenly between the Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals.
John is happy to call southern Illinois home, not far from where he grew up in central Missouri.
