Meteorologist Steve Norris is certainly no stranger to Cincinnati television. Steve jokes that he may very well hold the record of "appearing on the most TV stations (3) in the Cincinnati market in the shortest period of time (9 months).
Most recently, he did freelance work for WLWT-TV. Before that, he spent 3 years as the weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter for WXIX-TV where he was nominated for a regional Emmy for a story he did on earthquakes. He can now be seen weekends at 6pm and 11pm on the Channel 9 News.
Steve's love of weather started at a very young age. He grew up in Cloverdale, Indiana and remembers watching all the fierce thunderstorms that would boil up in the western sky and move overhead. After starting his television career in news, he quickly made the leap into weather.
Away from work, Steve says there's never a dull moment in the Norris household with his 22-year-old Blue-Front Amazon parrot named Hector among the brood. "It's impossible not to crack up when he starts laughing, whistling and talking non-stop. He talks more than I do, if that's possible."
Steve enjoys the many hours he spends playing the stock market, but admits "the past year has been challenging at best." He's also an avid runner and can often be found poolside in the summer. His latest challenge is learning to play the violin.
Steve loves meeting and talking to viewers as he travels around the Tri-state. Drop him at line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
