Meteorologist Taft Price joined the 2News Weather Team in December 2011.
You can see him on Saturday and Sunday mornings starting at 8 a.m. on the popular 2News Weekend Morning Shows.
Taft was born in Ponca City and is a life-long Oklahoman.
In his youth, Taft would track tornadoes using the Oklahoma map found in his family's encyclopedia collection. In fact, he saw several tornadoes on the horizon as a child while seeking shelter with his family in a neighbor's cellar. At the age of 12, Taft moved to the country southwest of Ardmore, near Lone Grove, in southern Oklahoma. He attended and graduated from Plainview High School. While he was a senior at Plainview, Taft and his family rode out an F2 tornado that struck their house in the middle of the night. They were fine but the house and barn took a beating!
After high school, Taft attended the University of Oklahoma and majored in Meteorology. The school's meteorology program is renowned as one of the top severe weather research schools in the world. Over the next four years, Taft would earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology but also apply that knowledge at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City as an intern in the weather office and out in the field as a storm chaser. His first storm chase was April 26 th, 1991, when 10 tornadoes touched down across northern Oklahoma, three were rated as F-4 tornadoes. Also on that day, Taft chased the infamous "Red Rock" F-4 tornado across north-central Oklahoma.
After college, Taft and his wife Debbie moved to Tulsa where he would spend the next 15 years working for another local television station. He served two stints as the weekend evening meteorologist with an 18-month span as morning meteorologist sandwiched in-between. While there, Taft spent some time in the field chasing tornadoes where he has seen nearly two dozen in his career. Taft served as the station's severe weather expert and station scientist. He has worked numerous severe weather events including the May 3rd, 1999 tornado outbreak, the May 2008 Picher tornado and the 2011 Joplin tornado. After Lone Grove was hit by an EF-4 tornado in February 2009, Taft reported live from the town where he spent so much time growing up.
In December 2011, Taft was blessed to get the opportunity to move to KJRH-TV as their weekend morning meteorologist. He is excited to get to work for an outstanding station and with an impressive team of meteorologists. Not only will you see Taft on weekend mornings but he will also be involved in severe weather coverage, both in the field and in the weather office.
Taft and his wife have two children, Tanner and Sydney. When he is not forecasting the weather, Taft enjoys spending time with family, working out, being outdoors, watching sports and planning his family's next trip to the beach!
