Joe Bird

Weekend Meteorologist, Reporter

Joe “the weather” Bird is the newest member of the Weather Authority team.

He joined Eyewitness News in November 2013 when making the journey up to the Tri-State from Shelbyville, Tennessee. Being from the south, Joe knows just how quickly weather can change and how much of an impact the weather can have on our daily lives.

He graduated in 2007 from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelors Degree in Electronic Media Journalism and then enrolled at Mississippi State University to study Broadcast Meteorology.

Not only does Joe love the weather, but he loves animals - especially cats and dogs.

“When I moved to Evansville, I had to leave my cat with my parents. I hated  to do it, but I knew that was best for him. At least I get to keep my two goldfish!”

Not only will you see Joe forecasting the weather for your area, you will also see him reporting on stories during the week.

Joe would love to answer any questions you may have for him. You can contact him at
