KPTV/FOX12 WEATHER - PORTLAND, OREGON


This is not the official KPTV weather site.
(more on KPTV/FOX12 at bottom of page)
I created this page a long time ago (1999) to gather various links I use in daily forecasting, plus a few unrelated to weather.
It's not real pretty, but works for me

    I've worked for KPTV/KPDX Television in Portland, Oregon since 2000, after working at KOIN-TV for 7 years

    - It's a great place to work and I've been blessed with good managers/bosses.
    - We are owned by Gray TV Corporation (2nd largest owner of TV stations in USA)
    - I do NOT "work for FOX NEWS"; a common misconception. "FOX-12" is our branding since we carry FOX Network entertainment content.
