Samantha Roberts comes to us from our sister station in Richmond, Virginia. She has also worked as a meteorologist (with occasional sports desk duties) in Alabama and Georgia. She’s studied, forecast, and worked during tornadoes, tropical systems, Nor’Easters, and more. She is incredibly excited to forecast what the Great Lakes region is so well known for: lake effect.

She graduated from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!) with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Electronic media. She obtained her Broadcast Meteorology Certificate from Mississippi State University.

In her spare time, she is a major bookworm. She is also an avid runner, big sports fan, and loves to cook.
