After eight years at WMC TV, meteorologist Brittany Bryant has announced her departure from the station. Bryant, a Memphis native who has always wanted to work as a meteorologist in her hometown, earned a bachelor’s degree in communication and information from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in 2011, and a master’s in meteorology from Mississippi State University in 2014.
During her tenure at WMC TV, Bryant became a trusted source of information for Memphis residents, documenting daily atmospheric conditions for the city’s residents.

Bryant’s last day on the air will be April 14, 2023, and she is leaving the broadcasting field to pursue a job outside of meteorology that will allow her to spend more time with her two young sons. Bryant will remain in Memphis and will always be a meteorologist at heart, publishing weather reports on social media.
Although details about her new job have not been revealed yet, Bryant has obtained teaching experience as an instructor for MSU’s Beginning TV Production class and co-authored a study on how viewers perceive colors on weather maps with her peers. She also took a storm-chasing course, where she learned how to forecast tornadoes in real-time, and has covered tropical storms and severe weather during her time at Myrtle Beach-based WMBF-TV.
