Shane Holinde WBKO
He began his career at WBKO in the production department in the Summer of 2000 before joining the First Alert Storm Team in March 2001. Having served for nearly 20years at WBKO as a meteorologist, Holinde recently got promoted to the Chief Meteorologist position.
He is a member of the National Weather Association. In Nov 2006 Shane earned the organization’s much-regarded broadcast seal of approval. Additionally, he has been honored four times by the Kentucky Associated Press for “Best Weather Anchor” in TV Division II in 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2014, with a second-place award in that category in 2008.
Holinde says he has been a weather nut since he was in diapers! His parents site the “Great Ohio Valley Blizzard of 1978” as the first big weather event that enthralled their son while growing up near Owensboro, KY. “Picture a little tike in pajamas running from window to window, marveling at the blowing and drifting snow outside, while his mother tries desperately to keep him in bed,” he says. “The power was out and the house was freezing!”
Years later, he got his first taste of performing in front of an audience, where he broadcasted a weather forecast on poster board for his fellow grade school students. Over three decades on, Holinde retains that same interest in meteorology, having covered everything from ice storms to tornadoes.
While at the University of WKU, he served as a weather and news reporter/anchor for the student TV newscast. He also spent a semester as a disc jockey for WWHR-FM (then known as New Rock 92) and has been known to spin some tunes at sound-&-light shows in his native Owensboro for a unit appropriately known as “Thunder and Lightning Music.”
In 2009, he returned to his alma mater to serve as an adjunct broadcast meteorology professor. One year, he has served on the board of the South-Central KY Chapter of the American Red Cross. Shane is currently vice-chair for the board.
