Tim grew up in Columbia, SC near the town of Irmo. Many of his days were spent playing sports like baseball and football. Tim has also been responsible for many broken windows while playing baseball in the back yard with his older brother.
After graduating from Irmo High School, Tim went on to Brevard College in Brevard, NC, where he played baseball for two years. After Brevard, he finished up college at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and also played two more years of baseball. He has a BS in Broadcast Communications from Liberty University and a certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State. Tim is also a member of the American Meteorological Society.
Tim got his start in television at WIS-TV in Columbia, SC as a news photographer from 2000-2002. From 2002-2005, he was the morning & midday meteorologist at KLKN-TV Channel 8 in Lincoln, Nebraska; where he experienced enough snow in three years to last a lifetime. While at Channel 8, Tim was a part of the weather team who won the AP Award for Severe Weather Coverage for the Hallam Tornado in May 2004, the widest tornado on record, 2 1/2 miles wide. He also anchored with his current co-host, Stacey Hilton.
"I've always had a fascination with severe weather. When I was growing up, my friends would get a real kick out of how I could name all the Meteorologists on the Weather Channel. I make my wife very nervous when I go outside during thunderstorms with the video camera."
Tim married his high school sweetheart & has a daughter Elena, and two cats, Mr. Bear & Babe. He enjoys several activities: church, working out, watching movies, church league softball & traveling. Tim also makes frequent stops at Chick Fil A for any meal of the day. He loves being back in the South where family is close, and he does not have to worry much about snow.
