Chief Meteorologist Kevin Coskren has always had a passion for weather. "I remember the blizzard of 1978 when I was growing up. I watched the snow pile up next to a yardstick outside the kitchen sliding glass door. There was lightning and thunder and during all this I wondered how it all worked," Kevin recalls.
Kevin's quest for knowledge took him to the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and to the University of Wisconsin, where he earned his Master of Science degree in Meteorology. He earned the AMS Seal of Approval in 1999 while forecasting weather for WKBT-TV in La Crosse, Wisconsin. In June of 1999, Kevin moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to become KLKN-TV's first morning meteorologist. A short time later, he was promoted to KLKN's Chief Meteorologist. Kevin has earned numerous awards and made appearances on The Weather Channel's "Tornado Week" and Discovery Channel's "Storm Chasers" after his coverage of a tornado that nearly destroyed the town of Hallam, Nebraska in May 2004. Nebraska is also where Kevin worked with News 12 Morning Meteorologist Tim Strong. Ten years later, Tim and Kevin are excited to be working together once again.
Before making the Augusta area his home, Kevin most recently worked as Chief Meteorologist at WLNE in Providence, Rhode Island. There he encountered everything from hurricanes to nor'easters. Kevin and his family are thrilled to be here in Augusta after having to endure some of the coldest, snowiest winters in New England's history.
Kevin says if he wasn't a broadcast meteorologist, he'd probably be a teacher. "I love kids, and I enjoy teaching people how the weather works."
