Becky Taylor, Baldwin City Radio Chief Meteorologist

Becky Taylor grew up in a small town outside of Wichita, KS, called Colwich, and she has been passionate about the weather from a young age. Her father was instrumental in this passion, and they attended storm spotter meetings and chased storms together starting when she was in elementary school. 

She spent her first two years of college at Kansas State University, then transferred to the University of Kansas. Becky graduated from KU with a degree in Atmospheric Science in May of 2015. She has two years experience as a broadcast meteorologist at 6 News in Lawrence and KSNT News in Topeka.

Becky left TV to raise her beautiful daughter, Thea, and she now lives on a farm outside of Baldwin City with her husband, Benton. In her free time, Becky loves to garden, read, cook, storm chase, play with her two dogs, and cuddle her cat.

Station operations manager Daniel Smith says "We are pleased to be able to deliver local, accurate forecasts from a trusted meteorologist who lives and works in our community. Becky is committed to keeping our community safe especially during severe weather."
