Guy Brown has made the move up Interstate 94 from Madison to Minneapolis, where he's now a meteorologist on KARE 11's Monday-Friday "Sunrise" newscast. 

"I’m very thrilled to now be apart of such a charismatic team on KARE 11 Sunrise! I’ll see you bright/dark and early with your forecast," Brown wrote in a Facebook post Monday morning. 

Brown arrives at the Twin Cities NBC affiliate after working at WKOW in Wisconsin. In fact, his last day at WKOW was Sunday, so his transition from Madison to KARE's Golden Valley studios happened in less than 24 hours. 

Prior to his forecasting duties in Madison he worked at KGWN in Wyoming. His television career began at an ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C.

According to his Facebook page, Brown is a Towson University graduate, where he studied meteorology, and electronic media and film while receiving a bachelor of science degree. He's also a member of the National Weather Association and the National Association of Black Journalists. 

In late July, KARE added Chisago Lakes native Ben Drery to its weather team. Drery and Brown were hired following the departures of Sven Sundgaard and Jason Disharoon earlier this year.
