Raised in Alabama, Frank Billingsley has called Houston home since 1989 and joined KPRC Local 2 as chief meteorologist in February 1995.

"I try to make the weather clear and easy to understand. The challenge is taking a complicated subject and making it simple, but I really enjoy it," he said.

"Of course, since Hurricanes Ike, Rita and Tropical Storm Allison, we've all become more aware of just how powerful weather can be and while I can't control the weather, I can be there to warn people when their lives or property is in danger. That's what makes my job worth it to me. I feel like I have a chance to give back to the world," Frank said.

Many viewers recall Radar the Weatherdog with Frank from 2003 to 2006. Radar now lives happily fat and retired pursuing other interests! Throughout Frank's life, his dogs have included Buster, Buff, Smokey, Rock, Hudson, and River-- one beagle, two spaniels and three schnauzers.

Since joining the Local 2 team in 1995, Frank has received Best Weathercaster awards from the Associated Press seven times, the Houston Press Club four times, the Houston Press newspaper four times and the Dallas Press Club three times. The Houston Chronicle named Frank the "Ultimate Weatherman."

A Washington & Lee University graduate, Frank received his Broadcast Meteorology Certification from Mississippi State University. He holds the seals of approval from both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
