Chief Meteorologist Jason Myers and his family are excited to call Kentucky home, and look forward to getting to know each of you in the community. Jason joins the ABC 36 Storm Team after working as a meteorologist at WRIC-TV8 in Richmond, Virginia. Coming from Virginia, Jason understands the complexities of forecasting everything from severe thunderstorms to snow and hurricanes. Jason has also gained plenty of experience tracking severe weather from his years working as a meteorologist in Abilene, Texas. As a father of four, Jason knows the importance of keeping you and your family safe during severe weather situations.
Jason holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology with a Communication Concentration from North Carolina State University. Jason has also earned the American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval, and is a member of the National Weather Association. His interest in weather began in the third grade when he made a weather station for a science project. In high school, Jason decided he wanted to become a broadcast meteorologist, combining his love for both people and weather.
A North Carolina native, Jason is no stranger to the Lexington area. Jason spent time visiting the Lexington area as a kid, while his Dad completed his Doctor of Ministry at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, KY. When Jason is not tracking the weather, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, doing everything from biking and camping, to coaching his son’s basketball team and playing tennis. Jason is also excited about serving and supporting the community through his church. If you ever see Jason out and about, stop and talk to him, as he loves to make a new friend.
