Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode is back at News 4 Tucson after a three-year stint at the CBS-affiliate in Portland, Ore.
“My body may have left Tucson when I moved to Portland, but my heart remained at KVOA”
You may recall seeing him forecasting the weather from 2006-2010 on “Tucson Today.”
Matt jumped at the opportunity to return back to Tucson and to lead the True View 4 Weather team.
“This is truly my dream job. Having worked at KVOA for 4 years, being a two-time graduate of the University of Arizona, I know the people and the pulse of the city. My family has a rich history in Tucson. Go find a 1945 Tucson High yearbook and you’ll see my uncle Seymour’s picture. My father and Aunt also spent a few summers in Tucson. My sister and a number of other cousins’ are also proud UA graduates. Tucson is very much home to me.”
Matt holds the AMS Seal of Approval – from the American Meteorological Society – and has worked in Duluth, Minn. and West Palm Beach, Fla., in addition to his stints in Tucson and Portland.
He is an avid reader, a decent guitarist and despite his degrees from the University of Arizona, is a huge Michigan Fan.
“Having grown up in Ann Arbor, Mich., dad and I would go to all of the Michigan games together”
Matt also is a self-described deadhead having attended many Grateful Dead concerts while they were still touring.
He would love to answer any weather-related questions and is passionate about sharing his knowledge of the weather.
