Jeff George is the FOX 25 Storm Watch Chief Meteorologist. He also serves in the Oklahoma National Guard as a Weather Forecaster for the 137th Special Operations Wing at Will Rogers Airport, and as a proud member of the Joint Task Force at Joint Force Headquarters.
His career in meteorology started in the U.S. Air Force in 1991. His last stop while on active duty in Louisiana led to his first TV job at KALB in Alexandria in 2000. It was not a pretty transition, but it eventually led to a full-time gig in Bismarck, ND. After that it was Chief Meteorologist titles in Abilene, TX and Toledo, OH.
Jeff is currently an acting member of the Governor's Task Force on Weather Safety. This group focuses on many weather-related initiatives across the state and continuously improves Tornado Safety Guidelines.
Upon arriving in Oklahoma in 2007, Jeff developed an educational program for Oklahoma schools called "Future Forecasters" that has taught weather safety to thousands of kids across the state.
On top of his passion for keeping Oklahoma as safe as possible during extreme weather, he annually emcees fundraisers for JDRF, Special Olympics, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the American Lung Association (ALA). He continues his love for the community by serving on the Board of Directors of the ALA, It's My Community Initiative (IMCI), and OK Bikes 4 Kids.
Jeff is also an ongoing Media Committee member at The Children's Center in Bethany. In 2011, he created and marketed a cookbook with all proceeds benefiting the hospital. The cookbook is titled, Firehouse Favorites: 100 Recipes to Heat Up Your Kitchen and Warm Your Heart. It features original recipes submitted by firefighters from across Oklahoma, along with artwork from TCCs children.
Other than working, getting involved in the community, and exercising, he spends most of his time with wife, Angela, and getting dirty with his 3 boys, Ethan, Jack, and Lex. You can watch Jeff weekdays on the FOX 25 News at 5 and the Primetime News at 9.
