Payton Malone grew up in the small town of Archer City, Texas before moving
to Norman, Oklahoma where he attended the University of Oklahoma. During his
time at OU he interned as a meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City where he
experienced all types of weather ranging from tornadoes, flooding and winter
storms. Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in
Payton's interest in weather began at the very young age of six after a
local broadcast meteorologist talked to his class about preparing for severe
weather. That along with growing up in the middle of Tornado Alley, Payton
has been hooked to the weather ever since.
He is excited to move to the Gulf Coast and start a new adventure away from
the plains. He loves venturing around the area finding new coffee shops,
local places to eat, and he looks forward to being involved in the
communities on the Mississippi coast.
