In December of 2005, Doug Iverson was offered the opportunity to join NBC Newschannel 6 as the chief meteorologist. And without any hesitation he jumped at the chance to come back home to Eastern Idaho.
You could say Doug has come full circle. He originally got his start in television at KPVI where he was a master control operator in the late 80s. A few years later he became the weekend weather anchor at KIDK. Then in the mid 90s he became the main weather anchor at KMVT in Twin Falls. While there he was honored with a Readers Choice Award for "Best Local Television Personality" from the Times News.
Before returning to Idaho, he spent 5 years as the chief meteorologist at KERO-TV in Bakersfield, California and was fondly known in the community as "Doug I. The Weather Guy". While at KERO he won "Best Weathercast" 4 years in a row from the Kern Press Club. Plus, he earned the Seals of Approval from the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
If there's one thing Doug loves most about the weather is teaching it to children. "There's nothing like seeing a child's face light up when talking about the weather." In fact, he has two children of his own, Chandler and Xander, who he occasionally teaches the weather to.
Doug and his wife Jennifer are looking forward to raising their two sons in Eastern Idaho.
