Aaron Morrison

Aaron joined ABC 17 News team in April 2016.  He was born in Pensacola, Florida and lived there until Hurricane Andrew forced him to move to a small town in Mississippi of less than 4000 people. Prior to ABC 17 News he worked at his home station, WTOK-TV out of Meridian, Mississippi, as a weekend meteorologist and reporter. Aaron obtained his broadcast meteorology degree from Mississippi State University, where he was active in the NWA/AMS club on campus, as well as the Vice President of Finance at his local Farmhouse Fraternity chapter.  Aaron has experience covering severe weather, as Mississippi is heart of Dixie Alley.  Throughout the years, Aaron has experienced countless impacts from Mother Nature. The storm of the century in 1993 that dumped several inches of snowfall in Mississippi was one of them. He was impacted by a tornado that ripped through his hometown in December 2001.  His greatest experiences comes from the April 2011 tornado outbreak and Hurricane Katrina, as the eye of the hurricane went right over his house. It was these events that lead Aaron to obtain his degree from Mississippi State. Prior to Mississippi State, he spent a short stint at culinary school, where he learned to fine tune his cooking skills.  He is excited to be in the Midwest and looking forward to the challenges that the weather has to offer here. When Aaron is not forecasting, he enjoys cheering on his Mississippi State Bulldogs or Atlanta Braves, spending time with friends, Netflix, or collecting Harry Potter memorabilia.
