Troy Christensen is the weekend morning meteorologist for KFOR. Like many television meteorologists, Troy has had a passion for weather from a young age. Some of his first weather related memories included reading about clouds and taking daily rainfall measurements. His passion brought him to the University of Oklahoma, where he studied meteorology and journalism.

While in college, Troy was a Weather Anchor for OU Nightly, the University of Oklahoma’s award-winning daily newscast. In addition, he took part in forecasting accuracy competitions and the student-run weather forecasting service. Troy worked as a meteorologist for KLBK in Lubbock, Texas for several years before returning to Oklahoma City.

Troy is experienced in tracking severe weather from storm chaser and emergency management standpoints. He is also trained in disaster preparedness and response, as well as emergency communications. Troy is also a member of the American Meteorological Society, and has interned with meteorologists from WGN-TV and WLS-TV in Chicago.

Although Troy is a native of Naperville, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago), he also lived in Germany as an exchange student for almost two years. When his mind is not focused on the weather, Troy has many other hobbies as well. These include hiking, traveling, watching Chicago Cubs and Bears games and skiing. Troy is excited to be back in Oklahoma, where he can put his forecasting and severe weather knowledge to good use.
