Andrew Wilson has been a meteorologist at KENS 5 in San Antonio, Texas, since August, 2019.

Andrew Wilson was born in Newark, Delaware, but grew up a majority of his life in Brandon, Mississippi. After graduating from Northwest Rankin High School, Andrew went to Mississippi State University, where he majored in Professional Meteorology with a Broadcast Emphasis. While at Mississippi State, Andrew was a member of the local American Meteorological Society/National Weather Association chapter. Andrew also played for the Mississippi State ice hockey club and competed with the waterski and wakeboard club.

Less than a week after earning his Bachelor of Science from MSU, he took a job working at KAIT in Jonesboro, Arkansas as a meteorologist/multimedia journalist. While in Jonesboro, Andrew covered various types of weather, including floods, winter storms and severe storms. As a multimedia journalist, Andrew would cover various topics, but typically worked on agricultural stories and stories that involved the great outdoors.

After a year and a half in Jonesboro, Andrew moved to Biloxi, Mississippi to work as a meteorologist/reporter at WLOX for the next three years. While there, Andrew covered severe weather and even a direct hit from Hurricane Nate in 2017. While working at WLOX in 2016, Andrew earned 2nd place in the “Best Weathercast” category of the Mississippi-Louisiana Associated Press awards.

After working in Biloxi for three years, Andrew made the move to Austin to work as a meteorologist and digital content producer at KVUE.

Andrew says he has loved his time in the Lone Star state and is always looking for new places to explore and good places to eat.

On his days off, you can see Andrew spending time running, hiking, kayaking and doing anything else that involves the great outdoors.
