Meteorologist Katie Vossler became a valued member of the Good Morning East Texas team in April 2017, though her ties to the region run deep.
Katie was born and raised in the heart of the Piney Woods, having proudly attended and graduated from Troup High School and Tyler Junior College. She pursued her passion for weather and obtained an associate’s degree in Physics before transferring to the esteemed University of Oklahoma, renowned for its prestigious weather school, where she earned her B.S. in Meteorology.
During her formative years, Katie wasn’t certain about the direction her career should take. However, fate led her to an internship opportunity at KLTV with Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto. Mark’s encouragement and guidance ignited her interest in television, and he has remained her devoted mentor ever since. Katie is thrilled to be collaborating with him once again.
Following her college journey, Katie launched her television career in East Texas at KTRE in Lufkin, where she served as the weekend meteorologist for two years. She then ventured to KOTV-TV in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she spent several years skillfully forecasting severe storms and even chasing tornadoes. As part of the station’s storm chase team, she has borne witness to at least a dozen tornadoes from both the ground and the air, aboard a station helicopter.
Her expertise also extends to covering winter weather events, notably receiving recognition and a regional EMMY award for her coverage of the ice storm in December 2007.
In her recent endeavors, Katie contributed her meteorological talents to KSAT 12 in San Antonio, Texas. One of her most unforgettable moments occurred during live storm coverage when baseball-sized hail caused nearly $7,000 worth of damage to her car, showcasing her dedication to her craft.
Katie’s credentials include the esteemed title of Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (Certificate #113) from the American Meteorological Society. Her exceptional skills have earned her local accolades as the “Best Weather Forecaster” and “Best Television Personality” from regional publications.
Beyond her work, Katie has a compassionate heart and advocates for local pet rescues, volunteering with organizations such as the SPCA and Humane Societies. She has a particular fondness for dachshunds, and her motto, “Adopt don’t shop,” reflects her commitment to animal welfare.
Outside of her meteorological pursuits, Katie finds joy in supporting her husband, who serves as a teacher and coach, by cheering on his team from the sidelines. The Vossler family includes a daughter named Grace and two beloved fur babies, Ranger, a dachshund, and Primrose, a border collie/golden retriever mix.
Katie Vossler’s dedication to her craft, her community, and her family exemplify the values that have made her a respected and cherished member of the meteorological field and the East Texas community.
