Jordan Witzel

Weather Specialist

Jordan grew up in Vancouver and received his communications diploma from BCIT.
Prior to pursuing an education in broadcasting, he attended Temple University on a football scholarship. He played tight end for the Owls but never caught a pass from Henry Burris as he graduated the year prior to his arrival on campus. Jordan also played high school football with Stampeders running back Jon Cornish.

Jordan began his broadcasting career at Big West Country radio in Drayton Valley, Alberta. He made the jump to TV by moving to Winnipeg to join the Global News family as the weekend weather anchor. While improving his forecasting abilities at CTV Winnipeg, he also completed his Science degree majoring in Operational Meteorology from Mississippi State University.

Jordan cannot express how excited he is to be back in the mountains. He grew up outdoors and is eager to explore all that Alberta has to offer. He is also currently pursuing his masters of Science with a concentration in Applied Meteorology at Mississippi State University. Most course work will be completed online with all research focused on environmental aspects of Alberta.

Jordan is married with two sons. He also has two extremely excitable pugs, Benson and Marli. In their minds, they could take on a Grizzly!
