I started off in tv news as a reporter and anchor before finding my way to weather. After transitioning to meteorology, I made it to The Weather Channel where I was part of the team that covered Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac as well as several major tornado outbreaks. I also provided weather hits for other NBC properties including MSNBC. While at TWC I had the great fortune of working alongside some of the best meteorological minds in the world. I learned a great deal from them and rely on my Weather Channel training daily when forecasting. Other stops along the way include CBS Philly, NYC and Los Angeles. My journalism degree is from Boston University and my Geosciences/Meteorology degree is from MSU.
I'm an avid traveler, highlights include seeing the glaciers of Antarctica, the Moai statues of Easter Island, and meeting school children in Papua New Guinea. Those experiences gave me a deep appreciation of the incredible education that travel can be. It also left me addicted to seeing new places and learning about new cultures. I'm forever planning my next adventure and feel very lucky to have seen so much of the world already.
Prior to my TV career, I sang and danced in touring companies of Broadway shows including The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Beehive and Starlight Express - yes, the one on roller skates! I don't sing the weather - but have been known to entertain my co-workers during commercial breaks.
People often ask what my name means, it means that my parents were convinced I was going to be a boy and they wanted to name me Kyle. Surprise! They mostly stuck with their plan and adjusted one letter, thus Kyla.
Thanks for stopping by and tuning in.
