Tyler Southard

Tyler is very excited to join the 5NEWS family and experience the culture and natural beauty of Arkansas.

In 2010, Tyler worked in Georgia where he became the weekend Meteorologist and weekday reporter at WGXA in Macon. Along with plenty of severe weather experience, Tyler sharpened his skills as a reporter winning an award from the Society of Professional Journalists in Breaking News for his collaboration on a homicide case involving a law student.

When Tyler isn't watching the skies he is usually adventuring outdoors, in the gym, cooking, or enjoying a movie or video game.

Tyler attended Lynon State college in Vermont where he earned a degree in Atmospheric Science and Television News.
