Our Guest

Gary England, Oklahoma TV Weather Legend

In 2015 Gary England was appointed by the Oklahoma Board of Regents as the University of Oklahoma Consulting Meteorologist in Residence.  Well known for his time as a TV Meteorologist with KWTV in Oklahoma City, Gary received four Heartland Emmy awards and has been the recipient of numerous other honors including the prestigious national Edward R. Murrow award for coverage of a tornado event.

In 1981, Gary became the first person in history to use Doppler radar for direct warnings to the public.  Besides appearing in the Steven Spielberg movie, "TWISTER", he has long been a sought after consultant for tornado weather specials produced by national and international television channels, appearing in over 60 such productions. 

He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and meteorology.
