Meteorologist Jamey Singleton joined the ABC 13 News team in November 2012 as a Web Producer for our website wset.com.
Occasionally, you may also see Jamey fill in for our Weather Experts team as well.
Jamey grew up in nearby Franklin County and graduated from UNC Asheville with a degree in Atmospheric Sciences in May of 2000. He brings over 15 years of TV and weather experience to WSET.
Jamey's passion for weather started at an early age. When he was just 10 years old, he drew his own weather maps with crayon, hung them up in his bedroom and pretended to do TV weather reports.
By high school, Jamey wrote weather columns for the high school paper, "The Eagle", and started his own weather segment on Franklin County's Cable 12. Jamey also helped start Franklin County High School's TV station, providing on-air forecasts during the school day.
Jamey worked for eight years as a TV meteorologist in Roanoke, covering hurricanes for TV stations across the country. He has reported live from Hurricanes Isabel, Dennis, Katrina, Charley, and Ivan.
Jamey is very active in social media, often posting weather alerts and forecasts for followers on Facebook and Twitter, especially during severe weather.
Jamey really enjoys living in the Heart of Virginia and is very excited to be a part of the ABC 13 team.
