Viewers of KRDO-TV may have noticed a new face providing local residents with the latest news on the Colorado Springs weather scene. Say hello to Stacey Garvilla, the station’s new chief meteorologist. Garvilla comes to Colorado from Joplin, Missouri where she worked at NBC affiliate KSNF-TV.
Garvilla started as a morning meteorologist at KSNF and worked her way up to chief meteorologist. In 2017, she earned the AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal of Approval. Prior to her time in Joplin, Garvilla had internships at WBOC-TV in Salisbury, Maryland, NBC10 in Philadelphia, and WCTV in Tallahassee. A native of Delaware, she earned a BS in meteorology at Florida State and BA in mass communications and geography from the University of Delaware.
When she’s not forecasting the weather, Garvilla enjoys photography and running. She’s run over 20 half marathons and four marathons. She also enjoys hiking with her husband and two yellow labs. You can follow Garvilla on Twitter at @StaceyGarvilla.
