Originally from Nashville, Grant Roberts is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in meteorology with a minor in broadcast communications. He joined the KSLA First Alert Weather Team in 2019 after working at KPLC in Lake Charles.
Grant interned at WKRN News 2 in Nashville, the station he watched as a child. He has always been amazed by the weather and knew at a young age he wanted to become a broadcast meteorologist. As a kid, Grant would always wake up in the morning and watch the weather for hours every day.
Grant has always enjoyed the outdoors. He played many sports, including baseball, football, track, cross country, wrestling, and rugby. Baseball is his favorite to play, but football is his favorite to watch.
Grant is thrilled to be in the ArkLaTex because it has always been a passion for Grant to help the community and keep anyone out of harm's way when it comes to severe weather.
