Brandon joined the KDLT Weather team as the morning meteorologist, and was promoted to chief meteorologist in the spring of 2013. KDLT marks the second stop for Brandon since graduating college. He started his meteorology career at FOX 21 News in Duluth, Minnesota as the weekend meteorologist.
Brandon grew up in Lombard, IL, a suburb of Chicago, and is a winter weather fanatic. Brandon graduated from Valparaiso University in Northwest Indiana where he earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Meteorology. During his time at Valpo, he had the opportunity to intern with WGN Meteorologist Tom Skilling and learn from Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee. He was also a member of the Crusader Football team.
Brandon made his first stop in Sioux Falls during the summer of 2009 on a storm chase and was able to catch a Sioux Falls Canaries game. He is excited to return to the state of South Dakota and call Sioux Falls his home!
While weather is his number one passion, sports follow as a close second. He is a huge Cubs, Blackhawks, Dolphins and Bears fan. As a former athlete, Brandon likes to work out, run, and play pick up sports to stay in shape. He also loves to watch movies, play guitar, and doing outdoor activities.
