Chris Webb, a native Texan and OU graduate, has always had a passion for weather. What had originated as a fear of thunderstorms, quickly evolved into complete fascination.
His time at the University of Oklahoma was spent studying meteorology and interning at various television stations in Oklahoma, including FOX 23 in Tulsa and KFOR in Oklahoma City. During this time, Chris covered the May 2013 tornado outbreak and many other severe weather systems throughout Oklahoma and Texas’ tornado alley. Along with his internships, Chris also served as a meteorologist for 4 years at the Emmy award winning student newscast, OU Nightly.
Upon graduation in the spring of 2015, Chris and his wife Jessica moved to San Angelo, TX to begin his first job at KXVA/KIDY. It was here that Chris helped launch a brand new morning show called Wake Up West Texas where he served as the morning meteorologist and co-anchor.
Apart from the weather, Chris enjoys airplanes and flying, playing guitar, golfing, and ice hockey. Chris is excited to join the 5NEWS Weather team and bring his skills to Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley.
