Tevin Wooten is a 2014 University of Arkansas alumnus with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. He has been hired as an on-camera meteorologist for The Weather Channel.
"Tevin has been focused on a career in weather reporting for years, and he's earned this new opportunity. He pioneered weather coverage at UATV, the campus TV station, and he received national recognition for team coverage of the Faulkner County tornado when he was an undergrad. Tevin is not only a hard working, talented pro, but he's a wonderful person, and we're really proud of him. He's come a long way from when he arrived on our campus from Camden, yet he remains humble and totally connected to his roots."Larry Foley, Chair of the School of Journalism and Strategic Media, speaks on his experience in teaching and working with Tevin Wooten.
