Kyle Kiel joined the KWWL Storm Track 7 Team June 17, becoming part of the station's award-winning storm tracking team.

Raised in the Quad Cities, Kiel's interest in weather began at a very young age after a local meteorologist visited his elementary school.

A few short weeks after that visit, a tornado ripped through the area during the school day, and Kyle became fearful of storms. That fear quickly turned into fascination, sticking with him ever since.

Kiel attended Northern Illinois University and earned his bachelor of science in meteorology, as well as a minor in geography.

While at NIU, Kiel was an active member with the student chapter of the American Meteorological Society.

Kiel comes to KWWL from WHBF in the Quad Cities.

“We're looking forward to having Kyle on board,” said Shane Moreland, News Director at KWWL. “Being raised and working in Iowa, he knows our weather, which makes him a real asset to the Storm Track 7 team as well as viewers.”

“I couldn't be more excited to join the team at KWWL,” said Kiel. “Their experience, plus the storm tracking tools they have, make this a great group to be a part of.”

In his spare time, Kyle enjoys being outdoors. He is an avid runner, participating in several 5Ks every year. He completed his first half marathon in 2014, and is looking forward to completing many more.

Kyle is a big "foodie," loves a good cup of coffee, and enjoys being around family and friends.
