Meet Collin Meyers!
I joined WIBW in June of 2014. I am coming to you directly from Oklahoma City, the tornado Capital of the world. Over the past several years, I have chased Tornadoes and Severe Weather with a few of my colleagues at the University of Oklahoma; (I know what you're thinking, 'Who would do such a thing'?) truth be told, I find extreme weather exciting. I still even remember some instances where we drove to Arkansas and Louisiana from Oklahoma overnight prior to exams the following mornings (Students, don't do this)!
I have had the privilege of learning from one of the most accurate Meteorologists in the Field, who experienced the Moore, Oklahoma Tornado disaster of May 2013 first hand, Chief Damon L. Lane, for the ABC affiliate in Oklahoma City. From my time in the most severe-weather prone market, I have learned the importance for accuracy and just how vital warnings and forecasts are prior to severe weather.
I am excited to join your very own weather team, Chief Jeremy Goodwin, Drew Switzer, and Doug Meyers, who all pride themselves in accuracy and covering your severe weather when it hits!
More about me: I am an avid sports enthusiast, and follow my teams loyally, regardless of success. I am a DEVOTED follower of my dearest Oklahoma Sooners' Football, as I know several of the players from my time at OU (sorry KSU and KU fans!). I also strongly support my Oklahoma City Thunder and Russell Westbrook and KD. But, don't worry, I also love my Kansas Jayhawks come college basketball season, and am a huge supporter of my Kansas City Chiefs and Royals.
Find me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! Especially if you love storms, or just want to stay up-to-date with the latest weather that's coming your way!
