Meteorologist Jessica Camuto came to WHNT News 19 in August of 2021. She came to Huntsville from our sister station in Elmira, NY. While at home in New York, she had the opportunity to fill in at several other sister stations: WROC, WIVB, and WUTR. She has experience with various types of weather events, especially snow, but her passion is severe weather. She says that passion came from a thunderstorm during a softball game when she was younger!

We love having Jessica here in North Alabama, and we hope you love her too! To get to know her a little better, here are some fun facts about News 19’s Jessica Camuto!
