Andrew Brightman joined KSLA News 12 as a meteorologist in August 2019.

Andrew comes to us from our sister station in Cheyenne, Wyoming where he worked as the Morning Meteorologist and then the Evening Meteorologist.

During his time in Wyoming, Andrew got to cover essentially every type of weather imaginable. From blizzards that dropped 15 inches of snow to triple digit heat, tornado outbreaks and even hail that was the size of a grapefruit, Andrew has seen it all. One notable exception is tropical weather, something he is very excited to put his meteorological skills to the test on.

Andrew first graduated from Emerson College with a degree in Broadcast Journalism in 2014. After deciding to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a meteorologist Andrew returned to school and a acquired a degree in meteorology from Penn State University in 2017.

Andrew loves sports and football season is his favorite season of the year. While he grew up in Philadelphia, for the most part Andrew is a New England sports fan. Sadly, that does include being a fan of the New England Patriots.

Andrew loves the outdoors and looks forward to getting explore the ArkLaTex (send food recommendations). He also is a golfer and looks forward to hitting the links when the temperatures don't nearly melt his clubs.
