Stephen Shiveley joined WGXA News in October, 2013, as a meteorologist.
Stephen grew up in Ocala, Florida, and has always had an interest in the weather. Even at a young age, he would often be seen following the weather forecasts on TV, enjoying an afternoon thunderstorm, and tracking hurricanes.
After high school, Stephen joined the U.S. Air Force and became a military weather forecaster. During his four-year enlistment, he forecasted the weather for Korea and Japan, covering everything from typhoons to blizzards.
After completing his tour of duty, Stephen was accepted into Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he pursued his meteorology degree. While in college, he worked as a TV meteorologist on MPBN, covering many storms, including Hurricane Irene. Stephen accomplished his educational goal in three years, receiving a bachelor of science degree in applied meteorology with an area of concentration on research.
After graduation, Stephen became a member of the American Meteorology Society and was a presenter at the 2012 Annual AMS Broadcast Conference.
Stephen then moved north and worked as the weekend/fill-in meteorologist at WMDT in Salisbury, Maryland.
He is glad to be back in the southeast, and is very excited about providing weather coverage for the WGXA audience in Macon and Central Georgia.
In his spare time, Stephen can be found exploring the area, going on a run, or enjoying a Saturday afternoon of college football.
