David Tillman
Chief Forecaster David Tillman came to ABC13 in late 2000 from WMC-TV in Memphis. He worked there as that station's meteorologist and received an Emmy for his coverage of a snowstorm that hit that city.

David is a member of the American Meteorological Society and of the National Weather Association. In 1998, he received his seals of approval from both organizations.

After graduating from Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi with a Bachelor of Science Degree in meteorology, David began his broadcast career. He was the Weekend Meteorologist at WAPT-TV in Jackson. A year later, he worked for the National Weather Network during the weekends and produced weather segments for 35 television stations and 45 radio stations across the United States.

Born in St. Louis, David and his wife Patricia have three children; David, Brianna and Sydney.
