Todd Howell’s fascination with weather dates back to his elementary school days, despite originally pursuing business administration and marketing at the University of Georgia in Athens, where he earned his degree in 1987.
However, three years after working in computer sales, Todd decided to follow his passion for weather. He returned to school at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi, and in May 1993, he achieved a Master’s degree in geo-science through the Broadcast Meteorology program.
While pursuing his education, Todd took on the role of a weekend weather anchor at WTVA-TV in Tupelo, Mississippi.
After earning his master’s degree, Todd joined WBIR-TV in June 1993 as a staff meteorologist. In 1996, he was promoted to the position of Chief Meteorologist. He’s a member of the National Weather Association, showcasing his dedication to the field.
Todd, along with his wife Leigh, resides in Knoxville, where they share their home with their four sons, named Walker, Davis, Nolan, and Stewart. As a family, they enjoy the outdoor activity of camping, creating lasting memories together.
