The Weather Channel Welcomes New On-Camera Meteorologist, Liana Brackett

ATLANTA (Oct. 26, 2016) - The Weather Channel television network announces that Liana Brackett has joined the company as an on-camera meteorologist.
 
Originally raised in Temecula, California, Brackett began her weather journey at Arizona State University where she initially studied broadcast meteorology. Fascinated with weather forecasting, she decided to change her major and transfer to University of California, Davis to study meteorology. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science in 2009.
 
Liana started her career working as a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Portland, Oregon. She spent over six years issuing watches, warnings and advisories for southwest Washington and northwest Oregon. She received several awards for outstanding forecasting and teamwork during significant weather outbreaks with the National Weather Service.
 
While she loved being behind the scenes, she left the National Weather Service in December 2015 to start a new adventure in front of the camera at Fox 12 Oregon in Portland, Oregon. With the support of her husband, David, and their two dogs, Dolce and Dasher, Liana is excited to be a new member of The Weather Channel family.
