Shelby Mac Steps Away from KAMC
Shelby Mac was born and raised in Middle Tennessee. The 2009 Good Friday tornado that ripped through her town and caused severe damage got her interested in the weather. That day, she learned how important it is to know about the weather and warn people.
Subsequently, she attended Mississippi State University, where she graduated with a major in meteorology and a minor in broadcast in May 2021. While attending MSU, Mac worked as a weekend meteorologist for WTOK in Meridian, Mississippi.
After serving East Mississippi and West Alabama, Mac left WTOK in May 2021 and relocated to Lubbock, Texas, to join the KAMC News weather team.
Shelby Mac is Good Morning Lubbock’s morning meteorologist. Her weather reports and the other stories she touched on have always been popular with KAMC viewers.
