Brandon Beck

You can catch Brandon each morning on Ozarks Today.

Brandon started at KY3 reporting weather on weekends just before he graduated from Evangel University (then college) in 1996. He holds a BS degree in Broadcasting and a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Brandon reported weather on the weekends, and worked in the KY3 promotion department three days a week. In 2000, he moved to Ozarks Today Monday-Friday when well-known weatherman Tom Dye retired. The morning news has expanded from 30 minutes to four hours in the 20 years he's been part of the morning team, from 5-7 am on KY3 and 7-9 am on the Ozarks CW.

Brandon says his most memorable weather events to cover include the May 4, 2003 tornado outbreak, the 2007 ice storm, the 2009 derecho, the 2011 blizzard and the 2017 flooding in West Plains, MO. He's fascinated with severe weather in particular, but loved talked about almost any kind of active weather.

Away from the station, Brandon loves to spend time outdoors, enjoys movies, (his favorite is the Back to the Future trilogy) church, and drumming. He has three grown boys and a German Shepherd named Sarge.
