Marshall McPeek is an Emmy award-winning, longtime Columbus meteorologist and journalist. He joined the First Warning weather team and Good Day Columbus in September 2013. He was promoted to Chief Meteorologist in April 2018.
Marshall grew up in Central Ohio (in Bucyrus, the Bratwurst Capital of the World) and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ohio University's Honors College with a degree in journalism. He received his meteorology training from Mississippi State University and has earned the American Meteorological Society's prestigious designation as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM #501).
Marshall started his broadcast career in Bucyrus at WBCO-AM/WQEL-FM when he was just 14 years old. Since then, Marshall has worked for TV stations in Toronto, Cleveland, Southern Illinois, Toledo, and Columbus. Many Central Ohio viewers may remember his 11-year stint co-hosting the weekend-morning broadcasts on, ahem, another local station. He came to ABC 6 / FOX 28 after running off to Key West, Florida, where he founded a successful marketing business.
When he's not staring at the radar or being mesmerized by passing clouds, Marshall enjoys tinkering with his Vortex Fountain project. He also loves exploring the back roads of Central Ohio and meeting the interesting people who make this one of the most fascinating places in the country. He loves to travel and looks forward to meeting you on his excursions!
You can catch Marshall on-air weekdays during ABC 6 News at 5, 6, 7 and 11 and FOX 28 News at 10.
