Pete DelkusPete Delkus is WCPO's Chief Meteorologist and has received many honors for his on-air forecasts including two First Place Associated Press awards for Best Regularly Scheduled Weather.
When there are severe thunderstorms, tornados, flash floods or excessive snow, people in the Tri-state have come to rely on Pete's steadfast and thorough approach to his work.
Many times, Pete is the only weathercaster working through the night to bring the viewers the latest and most accurate information.This dedication was highlighted on April 9, 1999 when Pete was the only meteorologist continuously on the air, tracking the tornado street by street.
In fact, were it not for his hard work, many more lives may have been lost and more people could have been wounded.Your overwhelming number of letters and notes of appreciation meant a great deal to Pete and WCPO.
Pete's philosophy on weather forecasting is simple.He believes that the majority of viewers want weather forecasts that are "just the facts" without all the techno-talk that is so common among many meteorologists.Keep it simple - should you take an umbrella to work or do the kids need a jacket at the bus stop?Pete gets to the point faster and makes the weather easier to follow.
Currently, Pete enjoys spending his leisure time with his wife, Jacque, daughter Emily and son Peter.Whether it is swimming, biking or swinging in the backyard, the kids are never too far from their Daddy's side.
In fact, you may have seen Pete and them on the news together - starting from their debut at the hospital to "Take your kids to work day".Pete is also an avid outdoorsman enjoying boating, deep sea fishing and hunting.And, on most days, if you're driving around Northern Kentucky, look for Pete - you will probably see him running his daily five miles.
