Meteorologist Blake Harms Joins WOOD-TV
November 11, 2022
Nexstar Media's WOOD-TV (Grand Rapids) has announced the hiring of Meteorologist Blake Harms. Harms is the morning meteorologist at Nexstar station WLNS in Lansing and is a West Michigan native.
“As someone who was first inspired to become a meteorologist because of WOOD, it is an incredibly exciting and humbling opportunity to be joining the team. West Michigan is my home, it is where I have always dreamed of being and to be coming back is something that I am grateful for,” Harms said.
Harms is a Valparaiso University graduate with a degree in meteorology. He has held internships at both WLNS and at WOOD TV8, after which he was hired as a weather producer with WOOD. Harms is a familiar face to West Michigan viewers and is known for his in-depth school closing predictions and forecasts. During his time at WLNS, he expanded his school closing predictions to include Mid-Michigan and West Michigan.
Harms joins the WOOD-TV Storm Team 8 alongside Chief Meteorologist Ellen Bacca, Chief Meteorologist Emeritus Bill Steffen and Meteorologists Terri DeBoer, Matt Kirkwood and Sara Flynn. Harms began his WOOD-TV assignment on November 7.
