Scott Roberts, Chief Meteorologist
Scott Roberts returned to WDHN as its chief meteorologist in April 2018. He originally joined WDHN in March 2013 before moving to a station in Augusta, Georgia. Scott was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, but grew up mainly in Port Charlotte, Florida. While attending high school there, Hurricane Charley, a category 4 storm, made landfall in Port Charlotte. The force Charley had and the efforts of the local TV meteorologist to guide the community through the storm reinforced his desire to make meteorology and broadcasting his career.
He graduated The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography with a minor in Climatology. That later led him to Mississippi State University to pursue a Master of Science degree in Geosciences with an emphasis on Broadcast Meteorology. While at Mississippi State, Scott participated in the WxChallenge, a national forecasting competition, and placed first in the graduate student division forecasting for Hilo, Hawaii.
Before WDHN, Scott worked as an early evening meteorologist at WRDW/WAGT in Augusta and as a weekend morning meteorologist at WTVA-TV in Tupelo, Mississippi. He also was an intern meteorologist at WINK-TV in Fort Myers, Florida, and at WTVT-TV in Tampa, Florida.
