Spencer Adkins is the longest-serving on-air personality on WOWK TV. He joined the station in March of 1993, after driving a U-Haul through the remnants of the “Storm of the Century.” That should have been a sign he would end up spending most of his time talking about the weather.
His first TV job was in 1989 at WBKB TV in Alpena, Michigan which was the smallest TV market (and station) in the nation at the time. Spencer did an entire load of news, weather, and sports for the weekend newscasts, his first exposure to weather casting. After that, Spencer would venture to Clarksburg, WV also in 1989, where he became the 11 p.m. co-anchor and producer. Spencer filled in for the late, great Mike Simons on the weather. His next stop was also in West Virginia at WYVN TV in 1991, in the beautiful Eastern Panhandle where he also produced and co-anchored the 11 p.m. news. Yes, he also filled in on weather when needed. In 1992, Spencer took a position as a weekend weather anchor and weekday news reporter at WHOI TV in Peoria, Illinois. Six months later, West Virginia would come calling again.

Two years later, Spencer was asked to take over for departing Chief Meteorologist Dave Parker. Spencer accepted, went back to school for meteorology, trained on the job, busted a few forecasts, learned a whole lot, and eventually earned the prestigious Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
