Billy Wade is a storm chaser and photographer for KNWA & FOX 24 in the Northwest Arkansas/River Valley/SW Missouri area. He has 5 years of storm chasing experience under his belt and has traveled all over the Southern Plains and the Mid-South in search of the elusive supercell thunderstorm.
Mr. Wade’s photography and video of extreme weather phenomena have been featured on various media outlets such as KNWA, FOX 24 News, and the Weather Channel just to name a few. “My goal as a storm spotter for KNWA/FOX24 is to bring you the most accurate reports to help save lives and also share the beauty of storms through my photography,” says Wade.
He enjoys storms and the beauty of them, because it reminds him of the book of Psalms 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.” Billy is devoted Christian and is actively involved in Celebrate Recovery, a biblical and balanced program that helps overcome hurts, habits and hang-ups. “If there is anything you ever need… I’m here for you.”
Billy loves being a part of the KNWA/FOX 24 Storm Spotting team and helping the public stay alert of impending life-threatening weather. He also hopes to start his own photography business soon.
