September 4, 1965 was an historic day. Why? Beacause that is the day that chief meteorologist / professional baseball player / Emmy winner / husband and father of two kids, Pete Delkus was born!


Pete Delkus had an outstanding athletic carrer. He played baseball and was an All-American pitcher. He made it to the College World Series with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville college as their pitcher. Old Pete still holds pitching records at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to this day. Straight outta college in 1987, Petey went to play for the Minnesota Twins professional baseball team organization. Pete played great in 1988 with the Single A team from Kenosha, Wisconsin. He finished out the season with 33 saves and a 0.26 ERA. In '88, Pete moved to a Double A Orlando, Florida team. He pitched 110 innings, saved 10 games, and finished the season with a 1.87 ERA. For the second year, Pete Delkus was awarded the "Minnesota Twins Minor League Player of the Year" trophy. Sadly, Pete's career was cut short due to a serious elbow injury, after 6 years of playing for the MinnesotaTwins organization.


Pete Delkus has Bachelors of Science in TV, Radio, and Film from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and a masters in meteorology from Mississippi State University.

Pete Delkus was the chief meteorologist at WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio. While he was there, he won two first place from Associated Press for the best regularly scheduled weather report. Even before joining the WCPO-TV team, Pete was a part of the Orlando, Florida based WFTV for 4 years.

Pete is the chief meteorologist at ABC's WFAA-TV in Dallas, Texas. He has been on the crew there since June 2005. While working at WFAA, Pete has won 2 Emmys! In 2006 and 2007, he won the Emmys for "Outstanding Weather Anchor" and "Best Host of a News Special".

And THAT is why PETE DELKUS is the BEST meteorologist in the WORLD!!!
