Meteorologist for KETV News Watch 7

Nebraska Weather
September 26, 7pm @ The Slowdown

Matt Serwe is the morning meteorologist for KETV News Watch 7. Because you're probably thinking it, his days begin around 1:30 AM.

Don't worry, he absolutely loves that schedule. He has been with KETV for nearly 5 years, and has been on the morning shift for more than 7 years. He worked at WJFW in Rhinelander, Wisconsin before arriving in Omaha.

Matt is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and holds a degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. Upon realizing that you need to stay in school to chase storms for a living, he decided to give TV a shot during his senior year, and it stuck pretty well.

Weather in the Midwest--and specifically the Plains--presents a number of challenges. Blizzards and tornadoes can occur in the same area within hours of each other. Matt enjoys these challenges, as well as the "always learning new things" aspect of weather in the middle of the country.

Outside of work, Matt has a passion for music and sports. He lives with his boyfriend and a Husky mix named Oakley. You can find him posting about any of the above subjects on social media: @MattSerweKETV on Twitter or Matt Serwe KETV on Facebook.
