Emma Landeros joined the KPHI Team!

Emma Landeros is an undergraduate at the University of Oklahoma (OU). She is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology with a minor in Broadcast Meteorology. Emma is involved with OU Nightly, OU’s student-run TV broadcast, where she records a Spanish weather briefing every week. She is also involved with The Oklahoma Weather Lab, where she is a co-deputy director of Broadcast Media. After graduation, Emma hopes to pursue a career as a bilingual broadcast meteorologist. Emma is excited to be a part of KPHI-TV and is looking forward to learning anything and everything she can, focusing on how broadcast meteorologists communicate severe weather to the public.

Joseph Trujillo has joined the KPHI-TV Team!

Joseph Trujillo is a MA student with the Department of Communication at the University of Oklahoma and a Graduate Research Assistant with the Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies and the National Severe Storms Laboratory. Prior to graduate school, Joseph wanted to pursue a career in bilingual broadcast meteorology; however, he quickly noticed that communication methods and dissemination in Spanish needed additional work. Since starting graduate school, he is working to raise awareness of weather and climate translations in Spanish and collaborate with the National Weather Service.

With KPHI-TV, Joseph hopes to focus on the communication of rapidly updating warning and probabilistic information in Spanish. In addition, he hopes to analyze how probabilistic hazard information will influence the way social media coverage is disseminated in the future.

Welcoming Sean Ernst to KPHI TV!

Sean Ernst is a MS student with the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma (OU).  Sean’s research interest is the societal impacts of hazardous weather and weather risk communication. Sean  earned his BS in Meteorology in Spring 2018 from OU.  His research interests were greatly impacted by the 2013 Moore and El Reno tornadoes, as he has focused his study on how weather information is communicated to the public, and the impacts that public perception of that information can impact their response to dangerous weather.  Since then, he has worked to study emergency managers’ weather information needs, the perceptions of NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologists of effective Impact-based Decision Support Services, and the general public’s reception of tornado warnings in Oklahoma.

With KPHI TV,  Sean will focus on how the Severe Weather Outlooks, created by the NWS Storm Prediction Center, impact severe weather communication by broadcast meteorologists. Stay tuned for more information regarding focus groups at the upcoming 47th Conference on Broadcast Meteorology/Fifth Conference on Weather Warnings and Communication.
