Connect With Me:

Tim grew up in Columbia, S.C. He is a graduate of Brevard College, Liberty University and Mississippi State; where he has earned his BS in Broadcast Communications and Meteorology degrees. He joined the News 12 team in 2005 from a station in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Tim spent two years at Brevard College in Brevard, N.C., and two years at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., playing baseball all four years. He has a Bachelor of Science 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 and the National Weather Association.

Tim got his start in television at WIS-TV in Columbia, S.C. From 2002 to 2005, he was the morning and midday meteorologist at KLKN-TV Channel 8 in Lincoln, Neb., where he experienced enough snow in three years to last a lifetime. While at Channel 8, Tim was part of the weather team who won the AP Award for Severe Weather Coverage of the Hallam Tornado in May 2004. At the time, this tornado was the widest on record at 2.5 miles.

"I've always had a fascination with severe weather," Tim said. "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."

Since joining the News 12 team in 2005, Tim has enjoyed bringing the forecast to Augusta viewers with a smile and some laughs. Tim is a part of the News 12 weather team who won the AP Award for Best Severe Weather Coverage in 2012.

Tim married his high-school sweetheart. He has two beautiful daughters who keep him busy and laughing. He enjoys several activities including going to church, working out, and playing church league softball. He is also a member of the ‘Breaking News Band’ where he plays the keyboards, sings, and the drums…if Richard Rogers is covering news. If you see him running on the Greenway, be sure to say hello!
