Brandon Chambers

Brandon Chambers joined the WHNT News 19 team in June 2011.

Brandon was born and raised in Oklahoma, but his roots run deep in the south. In fact, his grandfather was born here in the Tennsessee Valley in Decatur.

Brandon holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma, and served for seven years as a meteorologist in Oklahoma City, where he covered weather that ranged from destructive tornadoes and hail to ice storms and blizzards.

Other than his passion for weather, Brandon's interests include almost all sports (especially baseball), hunting, fishing, flying, and just about anything else that will get him outdoors.
