KRQE Meteorologist

Chris Gilson joined KRQE News 13 as weekend meteorologist in March of 2013.

Before coming to KRQE, Chris was the weekend meteorologist and reporter for WHBF-TV in Rock Island, IL.  Chris became interested in weather while growing up in Eastern Ohio.  There he got to watch everything from blizzards to severe storms, and flooding along the Ohio River. Throughout grade school and even high school, he would call in storm reports and the current weather conditions to local television stations in the area.  Chris’ teachers and classmates always referred to him as the weatherman, and he even had one teacher call him snowman.

Chris earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Meteorology at California University of Pennsylvania, and later he completed a Master’s Degree at Northern Illinois University.  Chris recently received the American Meteorological Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation, a professional recognition of the quality of his weather broadcasts.

In his free time, Chris enjoys getting out and hiking the trails around New Mexico.
