Brooke Brighton


Brooke Brighton is an on-air meteorologist at Spectrum News 1 - Wisconsin. Brooke is so happy to embark on this new adventure and be closer to family. From Madison to Sheboygan to Fond du Lac to Oshkosh, Brooke has family all across the state! It is a requirement at each family gathering that a cheese and salami spread is included. 

Brooke has started to explore different cities in Wisconsin, but there are so many more to visit! If you have any recommendations on places to go or things to do, don't hesitate to reach out! Oh, and Brooke is determined to find the best cheese curds in Wisconsin, so if you have any leads, let her know. 

Brooke's last TV station was in Peoria, Illinois where she was an on-air meteorologist/reporter at WMBD 31 and WYZZ 43 News. She will forever be #CIProud of her time in Central Illinois and getting to know the wonderful people who live there. 

Although Brooke is a B1G Ten supporter and will continue to cheer on the Wisconsin Badgers, Brooke actually attended The Ohio State University where she studied Agricultural Communication and Atmospheric Sciences. With that agricultural element, Brooke is fascinated with the dairy industry that is so important for the state of Wisconsin. Brooke would love to visit farms around the state and get to know their story.

Brooke was a weather intern at both ABC7 - Chicago and NBC4 - Columbus. In recognition of her work at ABC and NBC, Brooke received an "Outstanding Internship" award from her college at tOSU.

Brooke loves the outdoors and when not at work, she enjoys working out (especially kickboxing), chasing storms, hiking and shooting nature photography. Although passionate about all sports, Brooke has spent many hours on the basketball court and played on several championship basketball teams. (She is always down for a free-throw competition.) Brooke realizes the importance of giving back and continues to volunteer at Friendship Circle of Wisconsin where everyone is welcome and included.

Brooke would love to learn more about the wonderful community that makes up Wisconsin. Send her a quick "Hello" through any of her social media accounts listed below:
