LEXINGTON, Ky. – A longtime meteorologist from central Kentucky returns to Lexington this week. TG Shuck will join ABC 36 as the weather service’s chief meteorologist beginning Monday, April 18.
Shuck’s name is very familiar to viewers in central Kentucky. Many viewers will remember him for the 16 years he spent at WKYT from 1996 to 2012, concluding his successful tenure as Chief Meteorologist.
ABC 36 General Manager Chris Aldridge said, “TG is someone with deep Bluegrass roots. He has been with viewers through all types of weather events, good and bad. The people of central Kentucky trust him and we are honored to have him.
“We promised big changes and that’s exactly what we’re doing,” said Miranda Combs, the station’s news director.
Shuck is a four-time Emmy Award winner and has won the Kentucky Associated Press “Best Weather Anchor” award 5 years in a row. Shuck was also the first Lexington TV meteorologist to earn the prestigious “Certified Broadcast Meteorologist” certification when it was established in 2005. Shuck will be the only chief meteorologist in Lexington to have this certification.
Lexington is home to Shuck. He attended Lafayette High School and graduated from Georgetown College with a degree in communications where he also played on the football team. Shuck earned his degree in broadcast meteorology from Mississippi State University.
Shuck said: “Hundreds of viewers have asked me the same burning question on social media and in person: ‘When are you coming back to Lexington? After 10 years, I can finally say that the time has come!
Shuck joins us after spending the past 5.5 years at WHAS-TV in Louisville, where he was the morning weatherman for most of his tenure.
