Our Guest

Kathryn Prociv, Weather Producer for The Weather Channel’s Weather Underground.

At The Weather Channel’s Atlanta headquarters, Kathryn Prociv (’11 B.A. and ’12 M.S geography Virginia Tech) is known for her calm demeanor as a weather producer on the set of the channel’s flagship program, “AMHQ” By the time the show airs live at 7 a.m. each weekday, Prociv has been up for nearly six hours preparing and assembling graphics to tell the story of the day’s weather.

Prociv secured her position after just four months of freelancing for the channel. Her colleagues often call her the morning cheerleader, complimenting her on her unflappable nature and passion for weather, even in the wee hours of the morning. She chalks it up to her five Virginia Tech storm-chasing trips, several of them as a field leader.

Our Guest 

Rick Smith, Warning Coordinator Meteorologist, NWS-Norman, OK

I’m one of the few and the proud to receive a degree from the very short-lived meteorology program at the University of Memphis. While finishing up college, I worked as a Student Volunteer, and then got a paid student position and eventually a full time meteorologist intern position at my hometown NWS office in Memphis. In 1997, I moved to Tulsa, OK to be a forecaster, and moved again in 1999 to work in the NWS Southern Region headquarters in Fort Worth. I was selected to be the Warning Coordination Meteorologist at NWS Norman – my dream job – in January of 2002, and I’ve been here ever since. Co-host on the Weather Brains Podcast.
