Meet the newest member of the 4Warn Storm Team-Aaron Brackett
Please help us welcome Aaron Brackett to the 4Warn Storm Team.

I want to use my skills, everything I’ve learned to help save lives.” said Brackett. “Between college and now I have covered approximately 26,000 miles storm chasing and am ready to help 4Warn Oklahomans when the weather turns severe.”
Viewers have already started welcoming him to the Sooner state. Here are a few comments we have received.
“Wanted to say, I really like this new guy you brought in at noon today to add to our KFOR weather team. I think his name is Aaron, and I have to say, Arizona’s loss definitely is Oklahoma’s gain. Welcome Aaron!” -Brenda
“I just watched the weather forecast with your new meteorologist – I believe his name is Aaron Brackett? – and just wanted to compliment him. Don’t know if this was his first broadcast with KFOR but, it was the first time I had watched him. You have a great group of meteorologists – especially Mike Morgan and Emily Sutton!!”- Kay
“Aaron, Welcome to NewsChannel 4warn Team. Good Luck!” – Jason
