Who Is Kait Parker ‘The Meteorologist’ and Is She Married?

Kait Parker is an atmospheric scientist who became popular in America as a result of her work for Weather.com and The Weather Channel. During the period she worked for several television stations, she studied and covered every major storm that happened in the United States. However, despite being successful in her career, Kait decided to retire in 2017. To find out more personal details about the meteorologist, keep reading.

Who Is Kait Parker?

Kait Parker was born in Grapevine, Texas USA, on the 22nd of May 1981 to a math teacher mom and a firefighter dad, who also worked as a storm spotter for the National Weather Service. As a result of her parents’ jobs, she grew up with a love for, and fascination with the weather and also with an interest in mathematics and science.

Being on a rescue-and-response team, Kait’s father always responded to every natural disaster, helping during and after the occurrence of the events. Seeing her father save lives made her think of what she could do on the front end to save these lives before disaster strikes and that was why she made up her mind to become a meteorologist.

To make this happen, Kait Parker enrolled in the University of Missouri from where she graduated in May 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in Atmospheric Science and worked as an instructor for a graduate-level course on Climate and an undergraduate course on Storm Chasing. During her time in the institution, she was part of the Mizzou storm chase team.

Her Career Achievements

Kait Parker began her journalism career as a college undergraduate, providing on-air weather forecasts for various local radio stations, as well as the dual NBC/CW+-affiliated television station, KOMU-TV in Missouri.

After her graduation from the university, Kait Parker joined WAKA-TV in Montgomery, Alabama, as the weekday morning and midday meteorologist. Moving forward, she joined WPTV-TV, an NBC-affiliated TV station licensed in West Palm Beach, Florida, United States. There, she was hired first as a weekend meteorologist but it did not take long before her role was changed to weekdays. While working in West Palm Beach, the meteorologist also worked as an instructor for Earth’s Climate Systems, a graduate-level course mapped out by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and NASA.

Subsequently, Kait Parker moved from WPTV-TV to work as an on-camera meteorologist for NBC affiliate, The Weather Channel, beginning from January 13th, 2014. There, she appeared in shows such as “Good Morning America Weekend Edition” where she served as Rob Marciano’s substitute weather anchor and substitute meteorologist. She also hosted “America’s Morning Headquarters Weekend Edition”, alongside Reynolds Wolf.

In 2016, the passionate and energetic meteorologist trended for rebutting breitbart.com, a right-wing news website that came up with claims in late November of the said year, that the Earth is cooling, not warming, and even used a video of Kait Parker in the article. In response, Kait produced a video debunking the story with strong points. Because the “alternative facts” continued to pour in, she decided to turn the video into a series titled “Science Is Real”, where she sets things straight with regards to wrong claims about various science topics. In 2017, the American Meteorology Society certified broadcast meteorologist earned The Webby Awards for the breitbart.com video which the awarding body chose as an honoree in the viral category.

Also in 2016, the beautiful lady released a mini-documentary about cyanobacteria and water management in Florida titled Toxic Lake: The Untold Story of Lake Okeechobee. She served as correspondent and producer of the project which subsequently won The Society of Professional Journalists’ top honour for Digital Video in addition to being nominated for the News and Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Science and Environmental Reporting.

The following year, Kait Parker was listed among Grist’s 50 Climate Fixers in that year and was also featured in Marie Claire Magazine’s first issue on sustainability.

Michael works for The Weather Channel but before then, he worked at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center, Miami, Florida. He is a hurricane specialist.
