Brittany Bell - Meteorologist at ABC11 WTVD
Brittany Bell is a Tennessee native, but she is excited for her new adventure in North Carolina. She joins ABC11 as the weekend evening meteorologist. She joins us from WAPT in Jackson Mississippi where she earned her CBM seal from the American Meteorological Society, and was awarded Best Weathercaster by the Mississippi Associated Press.

Her interest in weather began as child. One major event that sparked her interest in severe weather was the Nashville F3 tornado in 1998. Brittany was actually in school when the twister hit only miles away. The calm demeanor of the meteorologists on TV inspired her to be that voice of calm when severe weather hit.

Brittany graduated with a B.S. In meteorology at Mississippi State in three years with a 4.0 GPA. While at Mississippi State, Brittany was selected to participate in the school's Great Plains storm chase. She spent a few weeks in tornado alley chasing severe storms. During her last year at MSU Brittany freelanced at WMC-TV in Memphis. After graduation she then worked at KHBS/KHOG in Fayetteville, and then WAPT in Jackson.

Brittany is used to covering "crazy" weather. She's covered tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, snow, and even earthquakes.

In her spare time Brittany enjoys spending time outdoors, and eating at local restaurants. She's married with one "fur baby," her black lab mix named Stormy.
