WBIR Chief Meteorologist Todd Howell started working at Channel 10 on June 14, 1993.
In that time, he's guided and helped keep East Tennessee safe through severe weather, snow and ice, and flooding. We've also come to enjoy sharing those "A-B" (absolutely beautiful) days with him, and share his excitement over a rare event like thunder snow. You won't find anyone more excited about the weather.
He's raised a wonderful Christian family with his wife, Lee. They have four sons, Walker, Davis, Nolan, and Stewart. You won't find a more proud and devoted dad.
He's a friend to everyone at Channel 10, always has a smile, and time to share a story or a laugh, or a personal forecast. You won't find a better co-worker.
I guess what all of us at Channel 10 are trying to say is, we have loved every minute of working with him over the last 20 years, and are hopeful he'll still be part of the family for at least 20 more!
Happy 20th anniversary at WBIR, Todd! We love you, and thank you for everything, Straight from the Heart!
