Laura Bannon joined the KSN Storm Tracker 3 Team in January 2014 and can be seen on weekend mornings. Laura comes to KSN from WBBJ in Jackson, Tennessee.
Laura has been fascinated by severe storms and tornadoes ever since she was a young girl. Having grown up in the Chicagoland, Laura was fortunate to get exposed to intense lightning storms, tornadoes, flooding, and snow storms.
Laura earned a degree from the University of Missouri in Atmospheric Sciences and Communications. While at Mizzou, Laura enjoyed giving back to the community and was a member of Little Sisters of the Gold Rose, a woman’s non-Greek service sorority. She also interned at KRCG in Jefferson City. She didn’t miss a beat when a weekend weather opportunity opened up. Although it was challenge while still in school, she was excited to do what she loved.
A Midwest girl at heart, Laura is thrilled to be in Kansas. When Laura isn’t working she loves to go on long bike rides, play with her dog, Buster, and go shopping.
