Josh Baynes


KCRG-TV9 Meteorologist Josh Baynes joined the TV9 First Alert Storm Team in September 2002. Josh was a familar face to Eastern Iowan's for eight years, working as our weekend evening meteorologist until November of 2010.

Prior to working at KCRG-TV9, Josh worked as a meteorologist for KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, LA.

Josh earned his B.S. in Meteorology at
Iowa State University in May 2001 and while at ISU he worked at KCCI-TV in Des Moines, IA as a meteorology intern. He is a member of both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association and has been awarded Seals of Approval from both organizations for excellence in broadcast meteorology.

Moving back to Iowa from Louisiana was a move back home. Josh was born and raised in Corydon, a small town in south-central Iowa. He’s very happy to be back home forecasting Iowa’s challenging and versatile weather. Josh admits he misses a bowl of gumbo now and then from his Louisiana days, and oh yeah, warm winters!

Interests for Josh include playing guitar, cooking, occasionally exercising, and spending time with his wife Molly and their dogs Maggie and Brownie. Josh and his wife also foster a dog now and then from
Last Hope Animal Rescue.

Editor's Note: Josh's last day with KCRG-TV9 was Sunday, November 21, 2010. Josh has accepted a position at Rockwell Collins. While we are sad to see Josh leave us, we wish him the best in his new position. You can leave Josh a message on the KCRG-TV9 Facebook page, and we will make sure he gets them.
