Jeff Penner - Meteorologist

I was born and raised in Kansas City and I have loved weather for as long as I can remember.  My mother tells a story that when I was a toddler I used to tear paper and make it blow around by moving doors back and forth.  So, yes I am obsesses with the weather!

I went to the Barstow School from Pre-K to the 12th grade and for college I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I received a Bachelors of Science in Meteorology.

I returned home to Kansas City where I became an intern for another station in town.  It is this station where I met Gary Lezak in 1992.  I became a part time weather producer until 1999.  Gary moved to 41 Action News and brought me with him in 2000.  I have worked at 41 Action News for 10 years as a weather producer!  Hard to believe.

Through a friend of Gary's I met my future wife, Edi.  We have been married for four years and have a great son. Skyler, who is 3 years old and loves trains.

So, yes Gary Lezak has changed my life forever!
