Kurt Schmitz

Senior Meteorologist Kurt Schmitz joined WRBL's First Alert 3 staff in September 2011 after a 34-year career in television meteorology.

He is a native of Appleton, Wis. and graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

Kurt began forecasting in 1977, polishing his craft at television stations in Colorado, Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas before moving to Columbus in 1989, where he spent more than 21 years as chief meteorologist at the local ABC affiliate.

He holds the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist credential of the American Meteorological Society.

His wife is a high school teacher in Columbus, and they have two grown children, a son who is a graduate of Georgia Tech, and a daughter who graduated from Columbus State's nursing program; they live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In his spare time, Kurt likes to get on his bicycle to keep in shape, especially along the city's Rails to Trails facilities. He is also involved with youth swimming with the local club team and area high schools.
