Reynolds Wolf -- The Weather Channel
Reynolds Wolf is one of our country’s premier talents. For more than two decades viewers across the country have seen his expertise in telling stories and forecasting the country’s most brutal storms. You'll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable television personality than Reynolds. His ability to tell stories and relate to the audience has been proven at CNN, The Weather Channel and NBC News.
The audience has seen him cover some of the biggest stories and natural disasters in the country over the years. He’s been on the front lines of everything from hurricanes, the gulf oil spill, flooding in the Midwest, blizzards, and the wild fires in the west, as well as his own Father’s Day testimonial on fly-fishing with his late father in Yellowstone. That piece garnered a lot of attention across the country and galvanized his place outside the confines of weather; making him a tried and true journalist.
In every event he has demonstrated an ability to get to the compelling human interest of the crisis and deliver the vital information for those in immediate danger. It's his empathic nature that makes him resonate with all of us.
Reynolds came to The Weather Channel from CNN in November of 2012 where he spent six years as studio meteorologist and field correspondent. At CNN, he was forecasting, but also the host and one of the creators of “Trip On A Tank;” a great travel series proving to be edgy, witty and a blast, with producers and crew right along with Reynolds in front of and behind the camera. He also did a number of specials that took him around the country and the world to document ways of life rarely seen.
Before making it to the national stage he worked at KMOV in St. Louis, where he served as the CBS affiliate's 6 pm Meteorologist. He has also served as the morning meteorologist for WKMG in Orlando, Fla., where he helped his station provide Edward R. Murrow Award-winning coverage during Florida's worst hurricane season in history.
Wolf also worked at WDIV in Detroit; KXAN-TV in Austin, Texas; and KSBY-TV in San Luis Obispo, Calif. He began his weather career at WJSU-TV in Anniston, Alabama. The Jemison, Alabama native is a graduate of Jacksonville State University in Alabama and has a certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. He is also a member of the American Meteorology Society and the National Weather Association.
He’s not just a journalist. He’s not just a meteorologist. He’s not just a science and nature correspondent. He is the consummate and knowledgeable story-teller with years of experience and identification with his viewers.
