Corbin Voges

Chief Meteorologist


For those who do not know, howdy is the official greeting of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Whoop! Now that it is clear I am a former student, lets go back a few years and figure out how I got there.

I was born in Evansville, Indiana right along the Ohio River. I lived there for the first 5 years of my life before my family ended up in Central Texas in the small town of Lorena. There I was raised on the outskirts of town where I would often find myself at the family farm, helping my dad and uncle either with cattle or row crops.

I consider myself lucky to have been raised the way I was. Weather plays an important role in the agricultural industry, which is important for the High Plains. Agriculture is where my fascination with weather first took root. When the meteorologist came on during the nightly news, my entire attention was on the television. I would go as far as hushing my parents so that I wouldn't miss a single thing the meteorologist said. This is where I knew I wanted to be a meteorologist.

After graduating from Lorena High School in 2015, I spent one year at Tarleton State University in Stephenville before I transferred into the Meteorology program at Texas A&M University.

I had three things that I loved while growing up: weather, marching band, and Aggie football (Whoop!). While at A&M, I was in the Corps of Cadets and was a member of B-Company, where I was a member of the nationally famous Fighting Texas Aggie Band (Whoop!). I always tell people that being in the Aggie band had its perks, but the best one was spending more time on Kyle Field than a majority of the football team. We always were given our 8 minutes during halftime to mesmerize a crowd of more than 100,000 people. Being in the band helped me develop into who I am now.

In 2018, when I wasn't at a football game, or some parade that the band was invited to, I spent my weekends at KBTX-TV in Bryan, TX. I would show up to understand how the news industry operated and to start practicing on the profession in which I intended to use my knowledge of weather. Once I graduated from Texas A&M University with a BS in Meteorology in 2019, I applied across Texas to multiple news stations, but I ended up landing the weekend Meteorology/Reporting gig at KVII-TV.

I spent the better part of a year as the weekend meteorologist before the opportunity to work full time in the mornings arose. Weather in the Texas Panhandle is second to none, so it was hard to pass up this opportunity. After three years of getting you ready for your morning, I was blessed with the opportunity to continue climbing the career ladder and was promoted to Chief Meteorologist in September of 2023. It is an honor and priviledge to be your Chief Meteorologist at KVII and look forward to many more opportunities to keep you safe when our weather turns wild here in the panhandle!

Thank you for welcoming me to the High Plains and Gig'em Aggies!
