In a dream three decades in the making, Bradon Long became Chief Meteorologist at FOX43 in November 2020.
Growing up in a farm town of 1,200 people in rural Northwest Oklahoma, Bradon graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2016 with a degree in journalism, meteorology and international studies. While he was still taking classes, Bradon worked as a meteorologist for television stations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. He chased numerous tornadoes and severe storms in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas before moving to Central Pennsylvania in August of 2016 as Weekend Meteorologist.
While at FOX43, Bradon created the “Center Stage” segment for local community theatres, told education stories of our host schools during High School Football Frenzy, covered the earliest effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in our area. He also anchored the news in addition to forecasting the weather, before being promoted to Chief Meteorologist in November 2020.
From tornadoes and hail, to snow and ice and even hurricanes, Bradon has forecast it all and is happy to call Central Pennsylvania his home. In his off time, Bradon enjoys visiting a local vineyard, cheering on his University of Oklahoma Sooners, playing golf and reading a good Agatha Christie mystery.
