An Arizona native, born and raised in Mesa, and graduate of Arizona State University, Ian Schwartz is thrilled to be home.
After starting his journalism career in Illinois, Ian worked in Albuquerque and later Sacramento. In the field as a reporter, he has covered flash floods, blizzards, tornadoes, wildfires, drought, and just about everything the weather can offer.
After spending some time reporting, Ian decided to further his education and completed Mississippi State's broadcast meteorology program. Ian loves everything about Arizona's weather from winter storms in the north to the monsoon in the south.
When Ian isn't giving you the forecast in the morning, you can find him hiking, traveling and exploring everything our great state has to offer. If you have any weather pictures or want to say hi, drop him an email or connect online.
