Yes! Brian Peters from ABC 33/40 in Birmingham will join us in February at the Renovation Revolution Home Show and will be doing a seminar for us on Alabama severe weather. Brian has a lot of experience with severe weather and a deep passion for meteorology. Take a look at his long weather career in the information below. We look forward to hearing from Brian at the Show. Thank you Brian for coming to our Tuscaloosa Home Show.
Brian Peters watched lightning as a child, so it was no surprise that when a hurricane affected him in Florida, he would choose to go into the field of meteorology. Brian earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from Florida State University and a Masters of Public Administration from Texas Christian University.
His weather career has encompassed a number of National Weather Service offices around the Southeast US including offices at Tampa, Tallahassee, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Memphis, and Birmingham. His last position with the National Weather Service was as Warning Coordination Meteorologist managing the severe weather program for much of North and Central Alabama working closely with the emergency management community and improving severe weather safety awareness.
Brian joined the weather team at the ABC affiliate in Birmingham, AL, in 2004 as an on-air meteorologist. One high point during his tenure there was the opportunity to fly through Hurricane Ivan with the Hurricane Hunters from Kessler Air Force Base and to report on Ivan’s arrival on the Alabama Gulf coast.
Brian has lived in Helena for over 25 years with his wife of 44 years, Jane, and enjoys having established roots. Their daughter works in theater in Chicago. They enjoy getting out to nature in their travel trailer. Brian enjoys computers and digital photography.
