Greg Bennett is our weekday morning meteorologist and the newest addition to the KCTV5 Weather Team. A seasoned atmospheric scientist, Greg received his meteorology degree from Florida State University in 2012, one of the leading universities for meteorology. Since then, Greg has been in broadcast weather both locally across the country from Florida to California and nationally, working for The Weather Channel in Atlanta.
Greg has a huge passion for weather and science but he's a pretty down-to-earth kind of guy. Greg is originally from Connecticut but was raised in Central Florida. The son of a truck driver, he grew up in a hardworking, middle-class family with his parents striving to make a better life for him and his two brothers. Since the day he was able to lift a lampshade, Greg would accompany his father on his truck and move furniture every summer and winter break, making money to go to college. His father would always say to him on each trip "Son, I want something better for you. I want you to not end up like me. I want you to work with your head and not your back." Greg took these words to heart but even to this day, during Greg's time off he still helps move furniture with his father.
Greg is so excited to be a part of KCTV5 and the Kansas City community. He cannot wait to visit schools and help show students that science and weather are not only fun but can actually be really cool. Did we mention that Greg is also a motorcycle rider? He is also quite handy and enjoys tinkering on cars and doing his own home renovations.
