Our Guest

Ross Ellet, Toledo TV Meteorologist at 13ABC and Storm/Aurora Photographer

October of 2005, I got my first chance to be on air.  Along with working weekends I also did some storm chasing for the station during the week all while finishing up my degree at Purdue. In early June of 2007 I accepted a Morning Meteorologist position at WOAY in Oak Hill, West Virginia. Just 3 months later I became one the youngest Chief Meteorologists in the country after I was promoted. A short time later I was awarded the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation from the American Meteorology Society. In November of 2008 I started a new adventure in tornado alley. I accepted a Weekend Meteorologist position at KHBS/KHOG (40/29 in Fort Smith/Rogers, AR). I enjoyed my time in Arkansas in front and away from the camera, but it is was time to get back to my roots in the Midwest. I joined the 13ABC Weather Team in Toledo Ohio during the summer of 2012 and love the forecasting challenges of the Great Lakes

Our Guest

Kim Cunningham, former On-Air Meteorologist at The Weather Channel

Kim has been a meteorologist for over 30 years. She had a 25 year dream career at The Weather Channel, first behind the scenes and then in front of the camera.  She was the first woman to be used as a tropical, severe and winter weather specialist/expert.  Kim was honored by her peers and asked to co-author “You can be a Woman Meteorologist”, a book for children about her career.

Prior to The Weather Channel, Kim was a forecaster and weather observer for the United States Air Force where she specialized in severe and tropical weather. Cunningham has been named Airman of the Year, and was the first woman promoted to the Severe Weather section of Global Weather Central at Offutt Air Force Base. While Kim is building a career in motivational and public speaking, she is also a communication coach for Speechworks, Inc and a freelance on-camera meteorologist for CBS46 in Atlanta.
