Andy McCray Career
About 12 years ago, he began playing weather trivia on Local 4 News at 5 and 6. He’s asked thousands of questions since then and given away tens of thousands of dollars in prizes. Do you want to get some free food? Ticket to a concert? Tickets for the River Bandits, Quad City Storm, or Steamwheelers? Every Monday through Friday, Andy will host a weather trivia game.
Andy earned his Bachelor of Science in Meteorology degree from Ohio State University in 1999. He interned at two TV stations while in Columbus, but he’d already determined he wanted to be a meteorologist even before he started college! At the tender age of eight, his family won a Christmas decorating contest in Dayton, Ohio, where he was already a major Weather Channel devotee. One of the local television stations broadcasted the weather “live” from McCray’s front yard as part of the reward! Andy had been sucked in.
After a few years, Andy received the Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association in 2004. His seal is renewed every three years depending on his continued meteorological education, which includes visiting seminars across the country.
Andy is also proud of his role in leading the drive at WHBF-TV to become one of the first television stations in the country to be designated as StormReady by the National Weather Service. The station was one of the first ten TV stations in the country to receive this honor in the spring of 2012!
