Kirk Greenfield has been with WTAP for almost 20 years.

He has a BA and MA in Telecommunications from Michigan State University, plus a Broadcast Meteorology Certificate from Mississippi State University. He studied weather at Ohio University in Athens in the early 90s before the Internet arrived.

For two years, he served as the Cooperative Observer for the National Weather Service in Athens County.

A married father of two grown children, Kirk enjoys spending quality time with his family. He supports his wife's work in the Athens Community Garden. He's also involved in home improvement and Habitat for Humanity. He sometimes rides a motorcycle to save gas and energy.

An avid sailor, Kirk's first interest in the weather was sparked by a purchase of a Dayton Sportsyak sailboat while in Junior High in Michigan, where he says "there's a lake every time you turn around!" He says, "Every kid learns to drive on snow and ice there." He also enjoys downhill snow skiing.

Kirk also leads Holiday Vacation trips for the station to interesting destinations once a year.

Prior to joining TheNewsCenter, Kirk worked in radio and had a successful career in Public Broadcasting, something he remembers fondly.

Kirk enjoys keeping the Mid-Ohio Valley informed of what to expect with the weather, especially when severe weather threatens.
