Julie Chin has called Oklahoma home for nearly 20 years. The New York native came to the Sooner state for its crazy weather, and tracked Oklahoma storms for nearly a decade as the lead weekday morning and midday Meteorologist for KJRH-TV During that time Julie won numerous Emmy Awards and garnered several more nominations for her life saving work. She also helped educate thousands of children about weather safety.

Julie currently is taking a break from TV weather, but still loves being able to tell stories about this great state on "Discover Oklahoma." Julie also owns her own company, and is the TV, radio and digital spokesperson for numerous businesses in the Tulsa area, including The Bob Hurley Auto Family and Read Smart. Most weekends you'll find her emceeing corporate and charitable events around the state.

Oklahoma Magazine and Tulsa Business Journal have both named Julie to their lists of the state’s top “40 under 40.” Julie has also been awarded the Scripps Howard William Burleigh National Award for “Outstanding Community Service,” and has been named by the American Red Cross as an “Everyday Hero.” Julie is most proud however of an award bestowed to her by the city of Muskogee, which named her as an honorary “Okie from Muskogee.”
