Tim Van Horn

Title: Meteorologist

On the air at WMC-TV since: June, 1999

Organizations:  American Meteorological Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist.  Holder of the National Weather Association Seal of Approval.

Education: Bachelor of Science degree (Geosciences) from Mississippi State University & a Bachelor of Arts degree (Communications) from The University of Memphis.  I graduated from Kirby High School in Memphis in 1980-something.

What's fun about my job: Visiting schools and civic groups to talk about weather and television is very rewarding for me.  When I was in school, newscasters visited my campus, and I feel it that it's simply my turn to give back what I was fortunate to receive.

Hobbies:   It's been my privilege to be the Public Address Announcer for the Memphis Redbirds for the past 11 seasons.  Also, soccer season seems to never end.  When I am not coaching, I have my goalie gloves dusted off and am hoping to stop as many shots as I can.  Also, it is a privilege and a pleasure to have the chance to tutor and assist with ACT prep at a local high school.  Otherwise, I enjoy just crashing on the couch with a good book or with some music.

Family:  I have family right here in the Memphis area and relatives scattered throughout the southeast. 

Why Memphis is so great: We've got the world's best drinking water here.  Someone should bottle it.
