Kristin Ketchell has always had a love for weather. For her, meteorology is more than just a job, it's a passion, and she describes her day to day as never feeling like work.

More so, being able to live in a place with such weather extremes is a meteorologists dream come true.
Throughout Kristin’s time covering the weather, one of the stories that sticks out to her as her most memorable was her coverage of Hurricane Florence and it’s devastating impact on the city of Wilmington, Nc. With damages cutting off the city from the rest of the state, Kristin recalls how imminent it was for her as a weather forecaster to continuously keep people up to date on the dangerous and changing conditions.Kristin is a decorated meteorologist to say the least. She is a proud recipient of the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal from the American Meteorological Society and has been awarded the 2018 Anchor Team of the Year and the 2017 Weathercaster of the Year from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolina’s.
Kristin explains living in Wisconsin as living around some of the kindest and most interesting people she’s been fortunate enough to meet. A growing state with a mix of everything from city life to beach life to farm life, Wisconsin has something for everyone.
