KCAU-TV Meteorologist Fred Hexom Returns to UNI

KCAU-TV (Sioux City) Chief Meteorologist Fred Hexom (Electronic Media, 1999) returned to the UNI campus in October as part of the 9th Annual Fast Forward conference.  He shared his story with students in a workshop titled "From Mild to Wild: Weather Forecasting in the Midwest."

Then he went rogue.

Fred, with a producer, spent the rest of the day visiting UNI, his professors, and his old haunts, including Lang Hall, KULT (the student radio station where Fred started his broadcasting career), and his dormitory.

His visit is captured in the series "The ABC9 News Team Goes Back to School" in November on KCAU.  His story aired Monday, Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. on the KCAU news (click on link to see video).
