Zach Guion has been surrounded by crazy weather since he was a kid. Born and raised in Hampton, Virginia, he experienced all 4 seasons in full swing growing up. From snowstorms to hurricanes to hot 90 degree summer days, Zach has always been intrigued by the numerous different types of weather that mother nature has to offer.
Zach has always loved spending time outdoors with activities like playing sports, hiking, and enjoying summer days at the beach. Enjoying these activities to the fullest requires an accurate forecast and solid planning, and he relied heavily on his local weatherman to provide just that for him every day.
Zach went to school at Virginia Tech and graduated with a B.S. in meteorology in May 2018. However, he wasn’t completely set on working in broadcast until he completed an internship at WSLS in Roanoke Virginia the summer of 2016. The very next summer, he interned at WVVA in Bluefield and had the opportunity to give on air forecasts for the Bluefield-Beckley market. After graduating, an opportunity opened to work in the area once again, this time at 59 News, and Zach took it without thinking twice.
Some of Zach’s hobbies include listening to rock and metal music, exercising, gaming, and exploring the many hiking spots in the Appalachian Mountains. You can get his weather updates on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/zachguionwx and follow him on twitter at @zachguionwx.
