Kyle Grainger is the weekend weather anchor and files reports from Sevier County weekdays on WVLT News.
Kyle grew up in coastal South Carolina, where his passion for weather began at a young age. The local weather man spoke to his school in the 4th grade, from there he knew television was the career for him. Along the coast he lived through multiple hurricanes which helped fueled his drive for the business. He wanted to be the reporter standing on the beach warning everyone to be safe.
Kyle currently serves on several boards and volunteers at different organizations in the community. Kyle is on the Steering Committee for Sevier County Food Ministries and is the Monday Volunteer Coordinator. Kyle is an advisory board member for the Pigeon Forge Hospitality and Tourism Association just to name a few of his activities outside of work.
Kyle considers covering Sevier County and the Great Smoky Mountains a blessing for him. He says he has made so many friends in the community through telling their stories.
