How can you put a face on weather? That's a mighty deep question, but I can tell you that, as a child growing up in this area, the weather certainly put a face on me...the face of fear! I was a kid afraid of storms. I vowed that I would learn all I could about storms and overcome my fear. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Arkansas and my Broadcast Meteorology credentials from Mississippi State University. My fear of storms has been replaced with a respect for the many faces of weather.

I am currently the StormTracker 12 Meteorologist for KSLA News 12 This Morning, the number one rated morning newscast in the market. I am proud of our many accomplishments and awards in such a short time. It is truly a team effort. I also co-anchor KSLA News 12 at 9 A.M. and am the meteorologist for that news time slot and for KSLA News 12 at Noon. I never tire of hearing "Hey Ron, what's the weather gonna be like?" I consider myself blessed to hear those words so often. I feel as though I know every viewer we have. I hope the feeling is mutual with every viewer. I believe in volunteerism in the communities we serve and always try to give back what has been afforded me. The Ark-La-Tex is my home...I will always treat it as if it were the actual residence in which I live. And the people of the Ark-La-Tex are like my family and will always be treated that way. It's all one great big team effort, all of us...ALL of US...and that is one of the many ways KSLA News 12 is "Coverage You Can Count On".

So when you see the faces of the Weather Team at KSLA News 12, the News Team or the Sports Team, you can rest assured that our passion is a common one- to keep you safe and informed, quickly and accurately, no matter what face the situation bears.
