James Spann is a nationally recognized, awarded, and prominent broadcast meteorologist who is coming to WKU to discuss one of the most devastating tornado outbreaks on record, which occurred during April 2011. James works in Birmingham, AL, an area that was in the epicenter of the outbreak.
The presentation is currently slated for April 2nd at 5:00 pm in EST (Environmental Sciences and Technology Building) room 260. If you are interested in meteorology, geography, broadcast media, severe weather, tornadoes, history, and want to see the fantastic personality of James Spann, this is a must see event! The NWS from Louisville and Nashville will also be in attendance, and all are welcome to a dinner gathering, pending Mr. Spann’s schedule.
