" I have the best job on Earth! Each morning, thousands of people invite me into their homes to report the weather and even give 'em a laugh or two. When someone tells me that the smile I brought to their face made their day that much better, it brings to me a feeling of joy that words can't explain!"
You can see Greg on the CBS7 Morning News weekdays at 5:30am and again at Noon.
Before his love for weather took him to Mississippi State University to study meteorology, his love for laughter took him all over the country. Greg has performed at Universities and comedy clubs from coast to coast and now brings a special blend of science and comedy to the CBS 7 morning news. Greg joined the CBS 7 family in 2001.
Greg is proud to be a native Midlander, where he grew up and attended high school at MHS. Greg is an avid storm chaser and spends a great deal of time conducting weather research. In 2002, Greg co-authored a paper on severe weather warnings that was published in the National Weather Association's Journal of Operational Meteorology. Greg also holds the National Weather Association's Seal of Approval.
In 2006, Greg was nominated for the NOAA Hero of the Year award for aiding in high water rescues which saved the lives of eight people during an August Flash Flood in Midland. In 2007, he was awarded the Walter J. Bennett Public Service Award from the National Weather Association for the same event. Greg also enjoys talking to schools, companies and community groups about the weather and how it impacts their lives.
When he's not forecasting the weather, Greg enjoys spending time with his wife Melody and their two children, playing the guitar, going to the beach "albeit some distance away," rodeos, fishing, and stand up comedy (you might even see him performing locally from time to time).
