Jennifer Zeppelin Named Chief Meteorologist at KTUL

KTUL has named a new chief meteorologist to replace Frank Mitchell, who retired earlier this week. Jennifer Zeppelin will step into the role at the Tulsa ABC affiliate, making her Tulsa’s first female chief meteorologist.

Zeppelin has been a freelance meteorologist at KTUL for the past nine months. She made the move to Tulsa earlier this year after her husband accepted a job at the Oklahoma State University Foundation. Prior to that, she worked at KCNC in Denver as the morning and noon meteorologist.

“In the last few months [Zeppelin] has shown all of us that she not only loves what she does, but also is serious about protecting our viewers from severe weather,” KTUL general manager Pat Baldwin said in a statement. “We believe Oklahomans will welcome her on board wholeheartedly.”
