Your Tyne Tees Weather Team

Ross Hutchinson

Ross settled in the North East after spending time working in London and East Anglia.

He started his broadcast career as a journalist before moving to weather in 2010. After training with the Met Office Ross took up his position with ITV Tyne Tees and Border and has never looked back.

The job has been varied to say the least! Wing-walking, skydiving and rubbing sun cream into pigs are all in a day’s work.

 Ross has a great love of the outdoors, nature and the environment. When he is not in the studio you will most likely find him outside, either walking Oscar the dog or at the allotment with his chickens.

After landing a trainee job at ITV shortly after university, Kerrie has been with ITV since 2000.

Growing up in the Peak District gave Kerrie an early love for the outdoors and so she jumped at the chance to join the weather team way back in 2002, and has been there ever since.

When she's not on presenting duty there's nothing more Kerrie likes to do than go for 'All The P's' - a pootle, a ponder, a pie and a pint!

"The best thing about my job is seeing how other people respond to and (hopefully) enjoy our British weather.  After nearly two decades of local weather presenting it still - almost every day - keeps me on my toes".

Frequently recognised for her sunny “Bye Bye” sign-off, Emma is one of the longest serving weather presenters at ITV.

She started as a colourful, quirky regular on national breakfast television, and has had her head in the clouds - and ITV Weather regions - since 1992, also presenting countryside programmes. 

Emma’s always had a keen interest in the weather, especially since she hails from the North West where there is rather a lot of it... 

She originally trained to be a vet, but side-stepped into TV, and the rest as they say is a paragraph in Wikipedia. 

As she made the leap from vet to met, she found that working with exotic species gave her quite a good grounding for a career in television… she's taken part in some heart-stopping, daredevil features over the years - it's all on the website:

She's done every job behind the camera, and worked as a radio journalist before achieving her ambition of joining the ITV Weather team.

Somewhat prophetically, her first ever radio report involved covering the hottest day of the year and frying an egg on the pavement – two of her favourite interests, weather and cooking! 

Emma’s ‘Racing Weather’ company has worked with the top racecourses in the country, and organises racedays and ladies’ events... and as an accomplished event host and registered celebrant she travels to many parts of the UK and Europe... but always loves coming home again.

When she's not scratting around in the garden or the kitchen, this one-woman wildlife feeding station enjoys dinner and a musical, languages and observational comedy, reformer pilates - and when there’s time - sleeping.
