Sinclair Broadcast Group’s KTUL Tulsa named Chris Nunley as chief meteorologist for the station branded as NewsChannel 8.

Nunley, who was weekend morning meteorologist at Tegna-owned KING Seattle, will deliver forecasts at KTUL weekdays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

He is replacing chief meteorologist Dan Threlkeld, who is retiring.

For Nunley, the new job brings him back home, having grown up in southern Oklahoma.

“I’m thrilled to join the NewsChannel 8 First Warning Storm Team,“ Nunley said. “I couldn’t be happier to be back in the Sooner State. I attended grade school and high school in Oklahoma and studied Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma.”
