Anthony Peoples joined the 13 First Alert Weather Team in May 2017 as a meteorologist after spending much of the last 15 years in the Midwest.
Anthony was born and raised in western Kentucky. He always knew he wanted to be a “weatherman” before he even knew the specialized term "meteorologist". As a youngster, he made weather instruments from whatever he could find around the house and he spent just as much time forecasting weather in high school as he did studying math and science. However, he didn't neglect his studies and graduated in the Top Ten in his senior class.
He graduated from Murray State University with a degree in Radio-Television News Performance and a minor in Criminal Justice. He then earned a Broadcast Meteorology certification from Mississippi State University in 2006. While working to become a certified meteorologist, he earned the National Weather Association television "Seal of Approval".
Before moving to the Northwest Florida Panhandle, Anthony worked as a meteorologist and a reporter for television stations in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Texas, Ohio, and Maryland.
When Anthony is not forecasting weather for News 13, he's following it from home, so you’ll likely get social media updates in the afternoons, evenings, and even on the weekend! Anthony believes in keeping you informed without all of the hype and “worst case scenarios”.
In his spare time, Anthony loves movies, binge-watching television shows, photographing nature, and cooking. He loves Mediterranean food and has a fondness for desserts!
Anthony also enjoys meeting people, so when you see out him in public, feel free to say hello.
