Best Meteorologist: Bill Taylor

Best Meteorologist

Winner: Bill Taylor


Bill Taylor grew up in New Jersey but has spent almost his whole adult life in the South. After earning a journalism degree from Louisiana's McNeese State University and starting his TV career at a nearby NBC affiliate, he went on to study meteorology at Mississippi State University and took the weather slot at a station in Montgomery, Alabama. He then applied for a weekend weather position at KENS-TV, and the rest, as they say, is history. Taylor's been providing KENS viewers with the weather lowdown since 1996, and as the station's chief meteorologist, he's become a local television institution. Beyond his meteorological expertise, he's won points from viewers with an irresistible smile and a cheery personality both on-air and at public appearances. What's more, Taylor isn't afraid to poke fun at himself, a trait that frequently shows up in his forecasts, promos and on his social media platforms. Check out the bloopers and outtakes he occasionally posts to see what we mean.
