HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - KSNB Local4 is excited to announce John Walsh is returning to his hometown station as the new evening meteorologist. Beginning Nov. 29, you can watch John Monday-Friday at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. on KSNB Local4.

The move is a homecoming for John, a Hastings native.

A Hastings College graduate, John began his forecasting career at KHAS-TV in 1990. He became Chief Meteorologist in 1997 before moving to the Omaha market in 2012 where he forecasted for KMTV. In 2017, he joined Gray Television and began forecasting weather for 10/11 News viewers. John was promoted to Chief Meteorologist for NBC Nebraska in early 2020.

Now he’s returned to where it all started - forecasting weather for Central Nebraska viewers at KSNB Local4.

“I’m thrilled to be back at KSNB,” John said. “I feel a special connection to the people of Central Nebraska. These are my roots. This is where I’m from. I feel a special dedication to serve the people here the best way I can.”

Apart from watching the weather, John enjoys being in it, with outdoor interests as well as the arts. He enjoys “attempting” to play guitar. A lover of motorsports, the ‘racer want-to-be’ is learning race craft, with the ultimate goal of driving shifter karts. He enjoys playing on a senior-league national traveling softball team, skiing, backpacking and climbing.

John and his wife, Susan, enjoy traveling, wine and their two dogs, not necessarily in that order.
