Molly McCollum

On-Camera Meteorologist, Co-Host of Weekend Recharge

Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga, Molly has always had a fascination for weather. But, it wasn’t until her first-hand experience with its power that she decided to pursue meteorology professionally. In 2011, she witnessed the wrath of a EF-4 tornado in Tuscaloosa, AL and the destruction it left on the community. That impactful moment fueled her desire to pursue meteorology and devote her career to keeping others safe.

Molly began her journey in the Midwest at KWCH-TV in Wichita, KS and KTUL-TV in Tulsa, OK. Here she covered in-studio severe weather and chased tornadoes across the plains. She covered everything from blizzards and snowstorms, to tornadoes, sometimes all in a 24-hour span.

More recently, she worked at WGCL-TV in Atlanta, Ga, where she earned an Emmy for her coverage of the 2018 hurricane season. This period was filled with many other unique experiences like flying with “The Hurricane Hunters,” the Department of Defense’s only unit that continues to fly into tropical storms, and executing on-ground coverage of the Category 5 Hurricane Michael in Panama City, Florida.

When she's not on-air, Molly enjoys computer programming (She is certified in Full-Stack Web Development.), spending time with her husband and two rescue pups, and exploring the outdoors. Molly is a graduate of The University of Georgia, where she earned a B.S. in Geography and a certificate in Atmospheric Sciences.
