Marcus Bagwell Meteorologist
Marcus Bagwell joined the KETK Live Doppler Skywatch Weather Team in September 2013. Before he made his way to Texas, Marcus called his home Nashville, Tennessee.
It's in the Music City that he found a passion for weather. At the age of 8, Marcus recalls a severe storm that produced three tornadoes which moved across parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. All day, he followed local meteorologists from his TV set. Little did he know this would lay the foundation for his future.
Years later, Marcus attended Western Kentucky University where he received a degree in Meteorology. While in college, he interned at WTVF in Nashville, TN, where gained the experience needed to put his book smarts into real life applications.
Marcus was also involved with the WKU Storm Team, a group of student broadcasters who inform the campus community of weather conditions.
Even though this meteorologist is far from his roots, he is happy to call East Texas his new home. In his spare time, Marcus enjoys watching sports and spending time with his wife, Cassie.
