Jennifer Gray is a meteorologist for CNN based in Atlanta at the network’s global headquarters and has earned the AMS Seal of Approval from the American Meteorology Society.
Gray covers everything from hurricanes, to earthquakes, to wildfires, keeping viewers informed from the CNN Weather Center using detailed graphics and explainers that capture the realities of catastrophic weather events. In 2018 she led viewers through Hurricanes Florence and Michael, as well as the devastating California wildfire season, one of the deadliest on record.
In 2017 Gray reported on the impact of climate change on Tangier Island, Virginia, a community that could be uninhabitable in 20 years due to rising water levels and erosion. The report promoted a response from President Donald Trump who contacted the mayor of Tangier directly to discuss the threats facing the community.
Prior to joining CNN, Gray was the weekend morning show meteorologist and a feature reporter for WTVJ, the NBC affiliate in Miami, where she covered severe weather in the field and helped produce specials that focused on hurricane preparedness and safety. She co-hosted and co-produced ‘Florida Insider Fishing Report’ for Sun Sports and ‘Beyond The Reef’ in conjunction with the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, raising awareness of conservation issues facing the oceans and Florida’s fisheries.
Previously, Gray was a meteorologist for KTBS 3, the ABC affiliate in Shreveport, Louisiana; and KBTV 4, the NBC affiliate in Beaumont, Texas. During this time, she covered hurricanes, tornados, record heat waves, ice storms and flooding; and she reported from live events, including Super Bowl XLIV.
Gray earned her bachelor’s of science in geosciences, broadcast meteorology program from Mississippi State, and she earned her bachelor of arts in broadcast journalism from Northwestern State University in Louisiana.
