First Alert Meterologist at KOAT Action 7 News
Introduction

"I guess you could call me a weather geek. Weather is what makes me tick and it affects everyone every day."

Byron Morton keeps you in the know morning and night on the weekend editions of Action 7 News.

Before joining the Action 7 News team in December 2001, Byron was chief meteorologist at WMSN-TV in Madison, Wisc., and fill-in meteorologist at its sister station, WKOW-TV.

Prior to this, Byron held on-air positions at WOI-TV in Des Moines and WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisc., and served as weather producer for Good Morning America, The LA Times, and Televisa Mexico. Byron also interned at KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City.

Byron is the second forecaster in the state (after Chief Meteorologist Joe Diaz) to earn the prestigious designation of "Certified Broadcast Meteorologist" from the American Meteorological Society (AMS), and he holds a seal of approval from the National Weather Association (NWA).

Byron graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Geosciences at the University of Oklahoma in 1996.

When he’s not keeping an eye on the sky, he enjoys weight-lifting, tennis, hiking, running, and just about anything else outdoors.
