Shawn Householder returned to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as the TV6 Weekend Meteorologist/Multimedia Journalist in May of 2018 after realizing he should never have left. Previously, Shawn was Morning Meteorologist at TV6 from February 2013 until April 2015. Here, he gained invaluable experience forecasting the record-cold "Polar Vortex" winters and was awarded “Best Weather Forecast for 2014” from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.

In April of 2015, Shawn moved on to Evening Meteorologist at WXFL-FOX 31 in Albany, Georgia, where he added severe weather and tropical forecasting to his quiver of talents. He only had to endure one summer in the sweet sunny south before moving on to yet another adventure.

Shawn also proudly spent two years forecasting from 2016-2018 at WBOY-12 News in Clarksburg, West Virginia, where he had interned as a college student prior to his 2013 arrival at TV6. Mild West Virginia winters brought minimal snowfall, but severe storms/flooding during the spring and summer kept his prediction proficiency razor-sharp.

Despite being a native West Virginian, Shawn had always itched to return to "Gitche Gami." It's been said the finest summers in the world and the finest people in the world are right here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He looks forward to getting reacquainted with his old friends here.

It won't take long for him to adjust to U.P. life. He spends much of his free time wandering the trails and shorelines with his two rescue dogs, Windy and Wookiee. Shawn also enjoys rowing, boating, bicycling and imbibing everything the Upper Peninsula has to offer.

If you see Shawn and his dogs, be sure to give them a wave or stop and say hello! If you have a weather report, picture or a news/weather story idea, email it to Shawn. You can also interact with Shawn on Facebook and Twitter.
