First Alert Morning Meteorologist
Jacob Howard joined KTIV in June 2022 as the new Storm Team 4 Meteorologist. He was born and raised in small-town Raleigh, MS just south of Jackson.
Jacob recently graduated from Mississippi State University in May 2022 with a Bachelor of Geoscience with a concentration in Broadcast Meteorology and a minor in Communication. During college, Jacob was a part of the Montogomery Leadership Program, Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society, East Mississippi and Mississippi State University's Chapter of the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society, and volunteered throughout the community of Starkville, MS.
During Jacobs's off time, he enjoys taking his dog, Daisy, on adventures with him. He also enjoys gardening, growing multiple indoor plants, going to garage and estate sales, collecting cookbooks, and traveling to new places. If you see Jacob out and about, be sure to say "Hi". He enjoys meeting people in the community of Siouxland.
Jacob is excited to be here and looks forward to keeping you up to date on the changing weather in Siouxland. He is especially excited to forecast the snow here in Siouxland since he has only seen snow less than 10 times in his life.
