Brandon Roux joined the Local 4 weather team in June 2010. He can be seen each weekend on Local 4 News Morning and at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
Before joining Local 4 News, he was the weekend Meteorologist and Environmental Reporter at WBNS-TV, the CBS affiliate in Columbus, Ohio with stops over his career at WFTC-TV in Minneapolis, Minnesota, KTNV-TV in Las Vegas, Nevada and KIVI-TV in Boise, Idaho.
"I've worked in every time zone and every climate from the Las Vegas desert to the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities," said Brandon.
Brandon's favorite season? Of course, it's winter. "So, I guess I'm in the right place!" laughed Brandon. "Winter weather seems to have a more widespread effect of the viewing area than severe weather, so forecasting becomes even more critical."
Brandon is recognized with the Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. He has received several awards for weather coverage, including the 2009 Associated Press award for Outstanding Weather Operation and the 2009 Society of Professional Journalists award for Best Weather Continuing Coverage.
