Chris Hohmann joined ABC 11 Eyewitness News as the weekend meteorologist in August 1991. Chris came from WRCB-TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and before that, WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. While at WDAM-TV, Chris was awarded Best Weathercast in Mississippi four times. In December 1993, Chris moved from weekends to "Good Morning Carolina" and "Eyewitness News at Noon." He was named Chief Meteorologist in June 2007 and now presents the weather at 4,5, 5:30 6, 10 and 11 PM on Eyewitness News.
Chris has forecast and covered many of central North Carolina's biggest weather events, including the Snowstorm of 2000, The Ice Storm of 2002, and Hurricanes Fran & Floyd. He was on the air for over twelve hours during the tornado outbreak of April 2011, North Carolina's worst tornado disaster in history.
Chris' interest in the weather began as child growing up in Louisville, KY. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, and snowstorms fascinated him, and he knew by the 8th grade that he wanted to be a meteorologist. He graduated from St. Louis University with a BS Degree in Meteorology and holds the American Meteorological Society's Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation.
When he is not forecasting the weather, Chris enjoys visiting classrooms across the Heart Of Carolina. In his spare time, Chris enjoys the beach, reading, going to the movies, and especially spending time with his family. Chris lives in Raleigh with his wife, daughter and faithful dog Madison.
