Chief Meteorologist, WRTV 6
The name Gregory is synonymous with weather in Indianapolis. Kevin Gregory's father, Bob, has worked for three decades at WTHR. Gregory admits that he learned a lot growing up by going to work with his father and observing his easy-going style and commitment to the community.
When Gregory is not forecasting the weather for WRTV 6, he is often in the community teaching the next generation about the weather. He has visited hundreds of elementary schools over the last 18 years and now hosts Kevin's Weather Camp each July. Nearly 2000 children have attended the camp since it began and each December he leads the WRTV 6 Toy Drive to help families in need during the holiday season.
Gregory joined WRTV 6 in August 1989. He also worked at WCIA-TV in Champaign, Illinois and at WLFI-TV in Lafayette, Indiana. In 1987, he was awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor from Purdue, and award given to the top male and female student athlete at each Big Ten school. Gregory was an All Big Ten tennis player and graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
Gregory earned the American Meteorological Society's Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation, granted to broadcast meteorologists who meet established criteria for scientific competence and effective communication skills in their weather presentations. Among radio and television meteorologists, the CBM designation is sought as a mark of distinction and recognition. He is also a member of the National Weather Association.
Gregory lives in Avon with his wife, Susan and children, Matt and Annie.
