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
