KSAT 12 is happy to announce the addition of Adam Caskey to the KSAT 12 Weather team.  Adam joins KSAT from WJLA in Washington, DC, where he has worked for the past eleven years.  "I'm very excited for a new opportunity with the talented team at KSAT12," said Caskey.

"I think Adam is a great fit for our team because he loves weather as much as I do," said KSAT Chief Meteorologist Steve Browne.

Caskey is originally from Minnesota, where he certainly saw his share of drastic weather changes and braved many winter storms.  After a winter of the "polar vortex" in our nation's capital, he's excited to be headed to a milder climate, and can't wait to experience the Texas warmth, both in the weather and in the people.

"This is such a terrific opportunity, knowing the popularity of Steve Browne and the entire KSAT 12 weather team, I can't wait to meet the awesome viewers I've heard so much about," Caskey said.

After college, Caskey started out as weekend meteorologist at KVRR in Fargo, ND. He then made the big jump to Washington, DC in 2003 and has served in several roles there in the past eleven years, most recently as the morning and noon meteorologist for the ABC affiliate.

Caskey will begin at KSAT 12 at the end of April and will initially report on weather related stories, and fill in for Steve Browne.  Then, in June, he will serve as the meteorologist for KSAT News at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. as Steve Browne remains at the helm at 10 p.m. on KSAT News Nightbeat.

"This really gives me an opportunity to stay connected with our viewers, and allows me to spend more time doing the things I love, but that have been put on hold all these years," said Browne. "I'm not retiring, I'm just going to focus more on my family and friends, while continuing to head the weather team at KSAT 12."

"We are so fortunate that Steve Browne will stay with us and focus his energy on the Nightbeat, while getting a chance to do all the things he loves doing," said KSAT 12 Vice President/General Manager Phil Lane. "I think he will be a great leader for Adam, who has tremendous experience covering so many weather scenarios."

Caskey's initial focus will be to visit local schools and connect with children, teachers and parents to help get local kids interested in science and the weather. "Nothing excites me more than seeing young minds absorb all the fascinating aspects of our world, understanding how and why our weather affects us.  I can't wait to share what I've learned with San Antonio students."
