Bret Walts grew up in New Albany, Indiana just north of Louisville, Kentucky. He graduated from Indiana University in December of 2017 with a degree in Atmospheric Science. At IU he broadcasted weather for the Indiana University Student Television station and was president of the IU Weather Club for 2 years. Originally a Direct Admit to the IU School of Journalism, he ultimately pursued the true passion he’d had all of his life – weather. He has always been captivated with weather, especially snow, and developed a passion for long-range forecasting in High School. Bret started at BAM shortly after his graduation in December of 2017 and relocated to Greenwood last summer. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, go karting, writing and cheering on his beloved Indiana Hoosiers basketball team.
