Laura Bannon joined WBBJ 7 Eyewitness in October of 2012.
Originally from the suburbs of Chicago. Laura graduated from the University of Missouri where she majored in Atmospheric Science and Communication. During her time at Mizzou, she also worked as the weekend meteorologist at KRCG-13 in Jefferson City.
She became interested in meteorology at a young age when she was with her father driving through storms. She says she remembers being scared but always felt protected by her dad. This is where Laura found her inspiration to become a meteorologist.
In Laura's free time, she enjoys spending time outside with her dog, Buster, snowboarding in the winter, and going to concerts.
